Dear Year 11 students,

We hope you are all well and staying safe at this very serious time.

We know that many of you are making enquiries about your mock results and when you will receive them. Due to recent guidance released by the Department for Education over the weekend, unfortunately we will not be sharing these results as it is likely that they will form part of the decision about your final grade in each subject. Latest information suggests that final results may arrive to you as early as July, however this has not been confirmed. As always, we will keep you all updated with any information as soon as we have it.

What you can do…

  • Keep all coursework, exercise books, completed exam papers and revision materials safe. Please DO NOT bring this evidence into school until it is requested.
  • Begin to create your CV/ Record of Achievement pulling together your journey at Farringdon and all of the successes and experiences you have had.
  • Take up a new hobby (indoor), skill or learn something new! Widen your skills and impress future employees by offering something different. There are lots of free courses out there such as learning sign language at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Read, read and read! Enjoy taking some time to develop your reading skills and well, just enjoy a good book.
  • Conduct research into your chosen course/ pathway in Further Education so that you are clued up ready for starting the next phase in your exciting, new educational journey!

Most importantly, Year 11, please stay safe and follow the guidelines issued. Young people as well as older people are becoming infected and in some cases, they are being hospitalised. Please look after yourselves but also take responsibility and consider the role you play in protecting those around you; those you know and those you don’t.

Remember:

washing hands

Take care.
