Dear parents / carers,

Exam season is well underway and the Year 11 students have been fantastic. I am sure they will be working hard over the May half term revising and preparing for the rest of their exams. Just a reminder that supported study starts from June 3rd 2019; students will be expected to continue to come to school for all lessons of a subject, until they have completed that subject (including all coursework and exams). They are then welcome to stay at home or remain in school to revise at those particular lesson times. The Sixth Form block study areas have been made available to Year 11 students as a quiet study area (plus they get access to the cafeteria!).

If you have any questions or need any further information about the above please contact Mr Hillier: he@kingdown.wilts.sch.uk

On June 14th the final day of exams for the majority of our students we will be having a celebration in the sports centre adjacent to the schools main site. After the exams on this day students will be invited to come to the sports centre to spend time with friends, enjoy a soft drink, some treats and collect their Leavers’ Hoodies.

If you have any questions or need any further information about the above please contact Mr Dudley: dd@kingdown.wilts.sch.uk

Year 11 Prom

A final reminder that the Year 11 Prom will take place on: Thursday 4th July 7pm – 10pm. Pupils should start arriving from 6.30pm for a 7pm start (please be mindful of traffic)

Subsidised Tickets are £10 and the below criteria must have been met:

Pupils need to purchase tickets from their Head of House only, at either break 1 or 2 – tickets will not be available to purchase at any other time.

Payments can be made through Wisepay or cash can be given to Heads of House. Tickets are personalised and need to be kept safe. Pupils will need to show their ticket on entry.
