We trust you have had an excellent summer holiday and all are looking forward to the start of term. As we prepare for the first day we felt it was good time to share some information with you.
You may well have seen the GCSE results published in the Eastbourne Herald with results for school in the local area varying from 43% to 71% 5A*-C including English and Maths. There has been much discussion about the impact of educational reforms and we are very proud of achieving 62% 5A*-C including English and Maths. Our results follow government guidelines and all are “first entry”results which is the basis that the government intends all school to be judged on. From the point of view of individual students some of the results were truly stunning and it was a pleasure to see the faces of the students as they opened their results envelopes last week.
On another note, please do check our uniform policy guidelines as we return to school. We are very proud of how smart our students look and this is something members of the public regularly comment upon. At the start of a new year this is an aspect of school life we particularly focus on in order to set the tone for the year. Please do not assume that “everyone else does it so it is ok”.
A reminder that Term 1 commences on FRIDAY 5 SEPTEMBER at 9.00 am for Years 7 and NEW Year 10 Subject Captains who should report to Mr Sibley in the Community and Extended School office. Years 8-11 should arrive by 10.00am and go straight to their tutor rooms for registration.
Finally, we look forward to welcoming all our students back from their holidays and integrating our new Year 7 students into the Cavendish community.
