Reassurance for Year 11 Students and New Applicants
Dear Prospective Itchen Student,
Unfortunately, we are still living through unsettling times, but I want to offer you reassurance as you look to your future.
The announcement that exams would again be cancelled for a further year, came rather suddenly. The government will be providing guidance with regards to putting in place a mechanism by which you will again be given grades to enable you to progress to college. We anticipate using these grades as the basis for our enrolment process, which will clearly need to be more flexible than in previous years. We will continue to provide you with support and guidance to ensure that you are enrolled on appropriate courses that will allow you to progress to your future career – university, apprenticeship, or employment.
At this stage we anticipate that the July Welcome Event will operate as we have planned, but we will continue to review this over the coming weeks. We are very keen to meet you in person, so that you can experience the sense of community that Itchen offers. We will keep you informed of any changes as decisions are made.
If you have any additional questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to welcoming you to Itchen Sixth Form College as planned.
With very best regards,
