Faye's Fortnightly Email

The fortnightly email from the Head of Sixth Form to our students

Hi all
I hope that you’ve all had a good week I’m still a bit annoyed about Belgium’s First Team 1 England’s Reserves 0 but otherwise the World Cup has been a top event, even if you allow for the amount of referees who seem to think that it is all about them and their new VAR toy. Tuesday night awaits…..

Alton Towers Trip
There is a trip for Year 10 to Alton Towers on Tuesday 24th July and it is open also to BC6F students. Coaches leave at 7.30am from Moor Lane and you’ll be in the theme park all day until departure from Alton Towers at 5.00pm. Letters / consent form available from Melissa or reception – the cost is £25. Please note, first come, first served.

Congratulations to…
Thanks to Karsten for the following:
The 19 Y12 students who worked so hard to achieve their YCT qualification in Mandarin. This is an amazing achievement as absolutely everyone in the group passed. Particular thanks go to their teacher Jing Xie who has taught them so well since October. All the students took the exam early one Saturday morning at Nottingham University as part of our ongoing partnership with the Confucius Institute. Three students obtained full-marks in both papers which is a truly remarkable achievement. Where do they go from here ....? China, of course, in October!

Email etiquette
The modern world now runs on electronic communication but that does NOT mean that basic manners and courtesies are ditched. If you’re making a request in an email, then PLEASE make sure you use the words ’please’ and ‘thank you’. It creates a positive impression and it is much more likely to be acted upon. THANK YOU.

Year 12 Mocks
These kick-off on Wednesday for practical subjects, then written mock exams from next Thursday. Make sure that you have prepared properly.

Have a good week.
Cheers,
James
