Bus Route 52

Good afternoon,

Due to extremely low numbers of students using the afternoon Route 52 journey from Carisbrooke College to Cowes area on Wednesdays (normally only 2 students), with effect from week commencing Monday 6th January 2020, we will no longer be operating the 1530 journey on Wednesdays only.

The journey will still operate at 1530 on Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays and Fridays as it does currently (picking up at Carisbrooke College after Christ the King College where a number of students do board the bus).

I am sure you will appreciate that it is unsustainable to continue to operate the bus on Wednesdays for such low numbers; affected students can use a combination of Route 38 and Route 1 instead on Wednesdays.
The morning journey is unaffected.

Open Day

Year 11 Students and parents from across the Island are welcome to join us on Saturday 25th January, between 10am and 1pm at our Open Day. This is an ideal opportunity to talk to staff about the subjects and courses on offer, tour the Campus and find out about VI Form life.

Science revision countdown

The countdown to exams has begun and we know that it can be a very stressful time for our year 11s as we get closer to the exam season. Therefore to prevent some students burying their head in the sand and leaving all their revision to the last minute Science has produced a 19 week revision plan. All students have been given a copy of the plan which is broken down into small chunked tasks each week with some self-testing at the weekend.
• 10mins a day Mon – Weds.
• 30mins – 1hr Thurs
• Friday Parent/Teacher check
• Quick test Sat
• Mark test Sunday
On Friday each week they will be expected to bring in their work and show their science teacher. Please also support their revision by checking they are on track.
This will hopefully help to reduce anxiety, take a bit of the pressure off and enable them to achieve great results this summer.
