End of Autumn Term, 3.20pm Friday 18th December. Pupils return Tuesday, 5th January 2021
We are very disappointed not to be able to host our annual GCSE Certificates and Awards Evening for the class of 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. This is always a great evening to celebrate success and wish the year group a fond farewell. We are very frustrated not to be able to host this event for this particular group of pupils. This year, it is necessary for each ex-pupil to collect their GCSE certificates and awards where relevant in person from the school.
The arrangements for collection are as follows:
- Only ex-pupils are permitted to collect their documents
- Collection is only available on Tuesday 15th December 2020
- Arrive exclusively between any of the following times:
- 9am – 10am
- 30am – 12.30pm
- 30pm – 5.30pm
- Report to the school reception and observe social distancing
- Hand sanitise on entering the building
- Wear a face mask whilst on the school site
- Sign to confirm receipt of documents
- Please do not park on the school carpark as we have very little parking capacity
In line with the archiving policy, certificates not collected will be securely retained in school for 12 months and then confidentially destroyed. Exam boards do not reissue certificates as a rule; Individuals will be required to apply directly to exam boards for statements of grades and pay the appropriate fee where relevant.
Should you require any further information, please email email@example.com.

Re: Winter Financial Support – Free School Meal Vouchers
Many people’s financial circumstances have changed due to the pandemic and a lot of people won’t realise they are now entitled to claim support that they weren’t entitled to before.
You may be eligible for free school meals, which if claimed quickly will also entitle you to vouchers over the winter holiday period.
It takes a few minutes to check your eligibility and apply for this extra support. To do this please click on the following link. https://www.shropshire.gov.uk/free-school-meals/
If you apply by Thursday 10th December, and your application is confirmed, you will receive a winter voucher worth £30 per child to help you over the two school week holidays.
This voucher will be valid at a range of local supermarkets
If you are already registered for free school meals, you will automatically receive the winter voucher which will be sent to the priority email registered with school.
If you are notified that your application has been confirmed it would be helpful if you would also email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we know to expect your confirmation from the local authority.
