GCSE and A level exams have started this week for pupils in Years 11 to 13 and continue over the next few weeks until June 25th. All pupils have been issued with a final copy of their timetable. This is a very important time for all our Key Stage 4 and 5 pupils and they should be preparing thoroughly. Please support your child with their revision programme. We also have a range of weekend and half term classes which they should attend.
Pupils in Years 9 and 10 will have internal assessments over the next few weeks. They will receive the details of these in due course.
Year 11 Stars Assembly
On the morning of Friday 17th May, we were delighted to award twenty seven Year 11 pupils silver stars for achieving grade C or above in three or four subjects and seven pupils bronze stars for achieving grade C or above in one or two subjects. Congratulations to all of these pupils.
After the half-term break we will start a new timetable. All pupils move up a year so for example Year 7 will become New Year 8. Our current Year 9 will become New Year 10 and they will start their Key Stage 4 courses including the subjects they have chosen as options.
At each of the parent consultation evenings we ask parents to give us written, anonymous feedback about how we perform as a school. We are delighted to report that out of 640 responses, 97% of parents feel their son or daughter enjoys school. Any area for improvement suggested by parents is considered seriously and action taken.
We are constantly striving to improve our standards and having 100% attendance is always our ultimate target for everyone. Parents are reminded that each time a pupil is absent from school, it has a negative impact on their learning. Different studies have proved that there is a strong correlation between high attendance and achievements of pupils. Where ever possible, any leave or appointments should only be booked during the non-school hours.
Year 9 Options
This year is a very important one for Year 9 pupils as they will be choosing the subjects they will be studying in Key Stage 4. As well as English, Maths, Science, RE PSHCE and PE pupils will also study three more subjects of their choice. Several events are held at school to provide pupils with the information to help them make the best choices and the timeline for this process is below .As you will see parents also play a part in this process and in due course you will receive information regarding the Options Evening on 7th March.

Slough and Eton Sixth Form results 2012
Onwards and upwards
Students at Slough and Eton excelled themselves with an 11% increase in the A level A* - C results. A year group of sixty one students took Level 3 exams and two thirds (66%) of them achieved A* - C grades in their qualifications with an average total points score of 558.
Headteacher, Paul McAteer said:
“We are very proud of our students. They have worked so hard to achieve these results with the support of staff and parents. We are a relatively young Sixth Form offering a full range of A levels only in the last few years and so we are very encouraged by the upward trajectory and this is also reflected in the very good AS results that pupils have achieved this year in Year 12.
Samara Awan, Fatima Bibi and Jalees Ul Hassan deserve particular praise for achieving a string of A* and A grade awards in their level 3 exams. The vast majority of our students will be going to their first choice university, having not been put off by the increase in tuition fees. However, some will be taking up apprenticeships and we are confident that they will make a significant contribution to any company that they join. We look forward to staying in contact with all of our students to monitor their progress in the future.”
