Welcome to the Student Bulletin
Parents’ Evenings (A2 Thursday 28 November & Wednesday 4 December; A1 Thursday 9 January & Wednesday 15 January)
Progress Reviews are due to be published online to parents on Monday 25th November
The English department are hosting Professor Lynne Murphy from Sussex University on Friday 17 January in the Main Hall at 11.45pm. Her area of expertise is American English and we would like to invite any interested students from other subject areas to join us for her talk.
I will be holding an initial meeting to give students an overview of the time-line and process for applications to Oxford or Cambridge and to answer any immediate questions.
As there are so many students, who have expressed an interest – there will be 9 further meetings during lunchtimes 11:45-12:30 in Room C328 Student Services. The meetings will take place every lunchtime in the weeks beginning Monday 18th November and Monday 25th November.
Students need only attend one meeting!
Students must book their own place – 25 available each day – by self-enrolling on the Oxbridge section of the VLE.
Students wanting a place in an Oxbridge Tutor Group will have to have attended one lunchtime meeting this term and one next term.
PLACES ON NEXT TERM'S OXBRIDGE TRIPS CAN ONLY BE BOOKED AFTER ATTENDANCE AT ONE OF THESE MEETINGS.
