Inclement Weather

A reminder to parents and carers that in the event of an unforeseen school closure due to inclement weather, notification will be made as early as possible via BBC Radio Lancashire, our school website and the school’s Facebook page.

GCSE French Controlled Assessment

GCSE French students will be resitting their Town Speaking exams on the following dates:

Tuesday 20th January

Tuesday 27th January

Tuesday 3rd February

Students will be advised of their times in the week before their exam. This exam is worth 15% of the final GCSE grade so therefore it is important that a lot of time and effort goes into revision.

Any problems/questions please see Miss Woodcock/Ms Nind.

Spanish and French Revision Sessions

All GCSE Spanish and French students must attend at least one revision session a week after school. Miss Woodcock will be available Monday-Thursday for sessions for both French and Spanish and Ms Nind will be available Tuesday for French.

Attendance at these sessions is vital as they will help with revision for Controlled Assessments which are worth 60% of the GCSE.

If pupils cannot attend any after school sessions then they need to see Miss Woodcock so that a lunchtime session can be arranged.



GCSE Spanish Controlled Assessments

Listed below are the dates of Controlled Assessments that will be taking place in Spanish before February half term:

Tuesday 13th January – Home and Town – Writing

Tuesday 27th January – Family – Writing

Tuesday 10th February – School – Speaking

Students must remember that these are each worth 15% of their final grade so therefore it is important that they revise their work thoroughly to achieve the best grade that they can.

Any problems please see Miss Woodcock.


Year 7 Parents’ Evening will be on Monday 26th January between 4pm – 6.30pm.

All parents and carers are invited to attend parents evening to discuss their son’s/daughter’s progress with all the teachers.  Students will be making appointments with their teachers in the week running up to the evening.

We look forward to seeing you on the evening.

Rhyddings ‘Techspert’ Applications

A final reminder to students that ‘Techspert’ (Digital Leader) applications are due in to me by this Friday.

Remember that you don’t need to have a huge range of skills already, as training will be provided. Thank you to those students who have already submitted an application – some of them are excellent!

Miss Bedwell.
