Contextual Data

Impact of Covid-19

Whilst school opened in September 2021 for all year groups, several students had to undertake at least one period of self-isolation. Whilst remote provision was delivered to students as best we could in the circumstances, not all students had access to the technology needed, so this added an extra challenge to provide what was required. However, most of the Year 12s were able to access online lessons, assessments, and feedback from their teachers. Support was given on a regular basis to help with any mental health issues students experienced and this was done primarily through our Student Support Team.

Whilst school life is ‘back to normal’ this academic year, many of our students are still working hard to overcome the lasting challenges posed by Covid-19.

University applications processes

Year 12 students were sent information about all online opportunities e.g. open days, work experience, etc but Covid-19 continues to have an impact on this aspect of preparation for students, especially those needing to fulfil the work experience/volunteering aspect of their application. Many employers/industries have not returned to offering face-to-face opportunities in the aftermath of the pandemic.

All Year 12 were taken through the UCAS process and given clear guidance on choosing courses, checking entry requirements, the personal statement, and completing the application. This was done via Teams and in careers lessons on a fortnightly basis. Year 12 (now Year 13) Form Tutors and Key Stage 5 Leaders were trained on their role in the process. All those writing references were given clear guidelines on their role.

UCAS Predicted grades

Internal assessments took place throughout year 12, with a formal mock week taking place in June 2022. In September, Year 13 completed further internal assessments to help decide about the UCAS predicted grades. Data from across year 12 and the beginning of Year 13 contributed to the final prediction, coupled with the usual aspirational feature of this process.
