The government has produced some resources to clarify the next steps for students who are still unsure about what to do after GCSE results are published.
On Monday August 3rd 2020, The Careers and Enterprise Company, in partnership with LearnLive, will be hosting an online event designed specifically to support you at this crucial time. There will be videos and interviews with key people to guide you through the options open to you. There will be a live chat available with qualified careers advisers, apprenticeship providers and employers on hand to answer your questions and offer you personal advice.
To register simply click on this link and fill in the details on screen. Once you have subscribed to the Learn Live channel you can gain access to all future on-demand and live stream broadcasts with just your email address without needing to register again.
On August 3rd, you can visit this link to take part. If you can’t make it, don’t worry, you can also visit this site to watch the recordings and the chat function will stay open for you to ask any questions.
FEAR NOT! All books can be returned in September. Seshat, the ancient Egyptian goddess of astronomy, architecture, scribes and writing, will smile down upon you if you remember to return them. I’m not sure what she’ll do if you forget. Happy holidays! The public libraries have reopened, so take advantage of them, please.
Please see the attached letter from one of our uniform suppliers -Baker & Sons, with regard to procedures for using their shop.
