Building Blocks to Success
We are very pleased with the results achieved by students who re-sat their AS exams in November. Their grades are much improved on their June grade performance, increasing their opportunities to achieve what they require to attend the universities of their choice this coming September. In support of this, all second year A-Level and University Foundation students have completed their UCAS applications in plenty of time and well before the deadline for university applications. We are already seeing some excellent offers coming in and our students and teachers are now working hard to ensure that they get to their first choices.
Short-Stay Immersion in Full Force!
G1 Environmental Science students investigated different soil samples to classify each type of soil and describe the different components of each sample. Soil covers approximately a third of the whole Earth’s surface, with a thickness that ranges from tens of metres to a minimum of few centimetres, according to the intensity and duration of the rock changing processes. There are many factors responsible for soil formation and the components of soil is different in each area of the world, depending on climate, rocks and vegetation.

Case Study focus for UFP Students
Today our UFP students were studying a pre released case study which will be the basis of the end of module exam. We are using this time to make sure that all aspects of the case study are developed and explored. The rational for this is to allow them to read the case study carefully; interpret the areas being addressed through the case study and the issues arising. It gives them the opportunity to discuss with their tutor and peers the areas they feel are being addressed and the issues arising to ensure that they are familiar with the case study and that they can anticipate possible question in the exam paper.
