The Astley Cooper School - New Building Plans Webinar
Please see our Year 9 Virtual Options Page for the latest details on the Key Stage 4 courses offered from Year 10 - click here.
We hope this information will help our Year 9 students make informed decisions. We also encourage students to talk with their subject teachers over the next week for further subject details.
Please see attached letter below for free virtual events and training for students, parents and carers. These are all offered through the Aspire Higher programme in partnership with Hertfordshire University.
Thank you for playing your part and helping to keep our school safe by following current Government guidelines during the national lockdown.
It’s so important that we don’t become complacent during half-term so we can all enjoy the break and hopefully come back to either remote, or face to face learning (for children considered vulnerable or children of critical workers) safely.
Hertfordshire County Council have asked us to share the attached leaflet with you as a reminder of what we all can and cannot do during the lockdown restrictions. Please do take the time to read it and remind your children that for now, we all have to play our part to protect ourselves, our families and our friends.
Following the success of the young people’s Covid-19 webinar last year, Hertfordshire County Council and Public Health Hertfordshire have arranged another follow-up session. Hertfordshire’s 11-19 year olds are encouraged to take part in this free event on Wednesday 17th February, 11:30am-12:30pm.
Please see the attached letter regarding the introduction of Wellbeing Afternoons for students and The Astley Cooper Screen Free Wellbeing February Challenge.
We have been made aware of a number of companies contacting families by telephone to discuss tutoring. Please be aware we would never share any contact information with third parties and these companies are not involved with or associated with the school.
Please see the attached document re: Consultation on ‘Alternative Arrangements for the award of VTQs and other general qualifications in 2021’
Following the Government’s decision that GCSE, AS and A level exams would not go ahead as planned later this year, the Secretary of State for Education has asked Ofqual, the exams regulator, to consult on alternative arrangements for the award of these qualifications.
