Year 13 - Half Term Update
16 Oct 2020
This has been an incredibly challenging half term, but we have been successful in remaining fully open and so far have had no confirmed cases in school which is very positive.
I would like to thank the students who are doing their best to engage in a normal school life while still following the extra precautions we have put in place. I would urge you to continue to discuss with your son or daughter the importance of good hand hygiene, wearing masks when required and adhering to the cleaning processes we have in place as these all help to minimise risks.
You will have heard through the media that the summer exams are being delayed by three weeks. We have been told that the majority of exams will be completed by 2 July 2021. Please be aware of this if considering booking a holiday.
The results days have also been adjusted. AS and A2 results will be on Tuesday 24 August and GCSEs on Friday 27 August.
I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that, after 36 very happy years at Ashby School, I have decided to retire at Easter 2021. The school will always have a special place in my heart and I know that whoever takes over will have the full support of a fantastic staff team and a strong community, and that the school will continue to deliver a great educational experience for young people.
We hope you all have a good half term break.
