Arrangements for Year 11 Leaving Summer 2021
Year 11 students have experienced a year unlike any other in the last 12 months and their efforts to remain focused on their studies has been impressive to see. The vast majority of our young people have responded with maturity and commitment since returning in March and have been working hard with their teachers to complete the assessments school needs to provide exam boards with their GCSE and BTEC grades.
Understandably, as the country cautiously emerges from lockdown students will want to spend time with families and friends to enjoy some hard-earned freedom. We believe this time is crucial for students’ health and mental wellbeing but given the disruption that students have already had to their studies, extra-curricular experiences and support of a normal year, here at Benfield we also want to make sure that our young people are as prepared as they can be for their next steps after results day in August.
Therefore, we have designed a Bridging Programme of remote learning and support that all Year 11 students can access after May half term until their official school leaving date of the 25th June and their leaving arrangements will be as follows:
In addition to the activities above, plans are being prepared for a Year 11 Prom which will happen on the Benfield School Site. This is planned for Thursday 8th July and more information will follow.
GCSE Results Day this year will be Thursday 12th August. Students will be sent an invitation to attend during the morning to collect their results and get any careers advice or guidance they may need. If students will not be available to collect results in person, can you please let Mrs Brookes know asap.
Can we take this opportunity to thank you for all the support you have given to students over the last 12 months – it is hugely appreciated.
If you require any further information please contact Mrs Hall or Mrs Brookes via the school office.
