Year 13 A Level Mock Exams
Year 13 students will be sitting A level mock exams between 5-16th October 2020 respectively.  The mock exams will take place within the classroom but under full exam conditions across all subjects.  Historically students would sit these exams at the end of Year 12 prior to transitioning into Year 13; however Covid 19 prevented this from happening.  Within the Sixth Form we are focussing very much on the future rather than reflect on the past events of Year 12 and I would appreciate your support in reinforcing the message of positivity and aspirations post 18.
Mrs D Wright – Head of Sixth Form

Biology Week Competitions
As part of Biology Week, we are running two competitions next week; a cell model competition and a wildlife photograph competition.  Further information can be found below.

A photograph of entries to both competitions should initially be submitted by email to slill@hrs.education by Sunday 4th October at the latest.  The subject title of the email should be ‘Biology Week’.  The photos of both competition entries will be judged and shortlisted. The entries will be shortlisted and selected entries will be invited to bring their work into school to be judged and displayed in the finals.
