Upper Sixth Trials

Monday 25 February to Saturday 2 March

Upper Sixth pupils will be coming out of lessons to sit A-level trials in the Old Gym from Monday 25 February to Saturday 2 March.  During this period, they will be on a study leave: Day Pupils only need to be in for the trials, while Boarders are expected to work in Houses.  Meanwhile, all pupils in teams are expected to meet games commitments, and any extra-curricular lessons need to be arranged around the trials.  Exam timetables have been issued via Houses to the pupils this week along with exam regulations.  These timetables are also available on Parent and Student Portals and the iSAMS App.  Please contact Dr. Bradley at mbradley@deanclose.org.uk as soon as possible if you spot any mistakes or your child has a planned absence during the trial period.
