It is our intention for parents of current students to be able to access any generic documents that have been sent home, either by email or via students.
Key dates for April, May and June
As we approach the Easter break, we would like to inform students and parents/carers about the key dates that are coming up over the next few months.
Please note that Monday 2 May is a bank holiday, and the college will be closed.
The last day of the half term is Friday 27 May and college reopens on Monday 6 June. The LRC at Welsh Bridge Campus will still be open for all students during the half-term break. Opening times will be confirmed closer to the date.
A Level Year 2 Exam Dates
Year 2 A level students have all been emailed with details for downloading their exam timetables from ProPortal. These will be available from 3rd May and exams begin from the week beginning 16th May onwards.
Please note that the exam boards publish a ‘contingency’ date where they could move any exam at short notice if needed. Students must therefore ensure that they are available up until this date, which this year is Wednesday 29 June – please do not make any holiday arrangements until 30 June at the earliest.
A level results day is on Thursday 18 August.
A Level Year 1 Mock Assessments, Dates & Study Leave
Monday 2 May is a bank holiday. Normal lesson timetables will resume on Tuesday 3 May – students should attend lessons unless they clash with a mock exam in which case, they should attend the exam and then return to their lesson when the exam has finished.
Vocational Art students – Year 1 and Year 2
These courses are assessed through continuous assignment work and therefore there are no mock exams for these students and no associated study leave – their timetables will run as normal throughout next term.
Absences should be reported each day, preferably before 10am.
The College’s reporting response to student absence from lessons is via a text messaging system, which is designed to inform you if your son or daughter misses any College commitments. An automated text will be sent to your agreed mobile number after 1pm on any day where a commitment has been missed that morning and also 6pm when a commitment has been missed that afternoon (if we have not received contact from you before the lesson begins to explain the absence.)
You are welcome to contact the College, following receipt of a text, where routine information, e.g. which lesson/s your son or daughter was absent from, can be provided by the student's Personal Tutor.
Who should you contact?
If you have any concerns regarding your son/daughter’s progress at College, please contact their Progression Specialist (for students following vocational study programmes) or Student Support Tutor (for students following academic study programmes).
Emails from Shrewsbury Colleges Group and ProPortal
If the College is closed unexpectedly due to severe weather or any other incident, a notification will be made via Radio Shropshire, the College website, Parent Portal, Moodle and social media channels (Facebook and Twitter if appropriate).
It is vital that the College has up to date contact details for the students and their primary contacts. If you have changed your address, telephone number, email address or mobile number please contact College to inform us.
