Dear New College students,
Welcome back to College: to meeting or seeing your College friends, teachers, progress tutors and peers; to earlier wake up times; to a more structured week; and to face to face teaching! There is a lot to look forward to and some adjustments to make too. We will soon get you settled in and we are confident that this is the right place to look after your academic and personal needs. Year 13 students, we are ready to help you to revisit some of the work that we covered during college closure. Year 12, we will make sure that any GCSE work that is needed as a foundation for your level 3 studies is explained and revisited. We will help you more than ever to prepare for assignments, assessments and exams. Listen to the advice you hear from us – we know what we are talking about!
Finally, please take collective responsibility for your health and safety. Wear a face covering outside of your lessons and tutorials, keep your hands clean, observe the one way systems and watch the safely video so that you know what to do if you have symptoms of Covid-19 https://vimeo.com/454290226/b99f8142c6

Welcome back to this new half term. We hope everyone had an excellent half term holiday.
We are now in the final 10 college week revision period for Y13 A level students and the last push for BTEC students to ensure you get the best possible outcome for your qualification. It’s time to get organised so that you can approach this final stage of your New College journey with confidence. You will be receiving lots of advice about how to study effectively to ensure you are both successful and calm in this time-use this well and share any concerns with your tutors and teachers. Together, we can make this a really successful year. Good luck.
