Year 11 – Mrs Goodwin
Year 11 is one of the most important years of any students education. This is the final year in which they consolidate all of the information learned over the last 3 years and enter their G.C.S.E’s. During this final year they have their pre public exams in the January and will sit final exams in the May. As a school we put on lots of revision sessions to help our pupils. These happen in the morning, at break/lunch and after school. We have a brilliantly dedicated staff who work tirelessly to ensure each and every student reaches their full potential and are always on hand to answer any questions.
Our students also fully settle into their roles of head boy/head girl, senior prefects and general prefects. They complete duties at lunch and ensure the safety of younger students. They are always available to any student to offer help and support to any student in our school and they are such amazing role models within the school-we are very proud of them!
This is the time of year when our students look to get in their 6th form applications. This process has been meticulously walked through with them and they are fully supported by tutors through to senior staff.
It is an exciting time for them planning for their prom and their year book. We have committees of students who run the organisation and decision making for these areas and they are currently doing a fabulous job and I know that the prom will be a brilliant event held at the Three Rivers Golf club. The year book is also looking brilliant because of all the hard work the pupils are putting into it.
This is a very buy year for our students and on top of this they compete to a very high standard in sport with many of our teams reaching the national competition stages.
Year 11 Hoodies
We have designed a school hoodie that students are able to purchase. The hoodie will say ‘The King John School Leavers 2017’ and on the back will be every students’ name within the number 17.
Hoodies are ordered directly through the company website; please do not try to pay for the hoodie through the school. There are 20 colours to choose from. The hoodie costs £12.45 with no further costs involved. They will be delivered to school, along with the yearbooks, ready to collect on Results Day in August.
The link to order the hoodies is: https://www.schoolleaverscompany.co.uk/shops/SL34607
The online shop will close on 15/06/17, with no guarantee they will be able to fulfil orders after this date.
A final reminder that if students have not yet purchased their prom tickets, this must be done as a matter of urgency.
We hope that these products will be a great reminder of students’ time here at The King John School.
Year 11 Prom
Year 11 will be celebrating the end of their exams and school days with a prom. This will be held on Thursday 6 July 2017 at The Three Rivers Golf and Country Club, Cold Norton. It is a chance for students to say their goodbyes and celebrate the end of the exams in style. The cost of the prom is £35 and this includes entry, buffet and unlimited soft drinks. Students will need to bring money with them if they would like a Prom photo. The evening begins at 7:30pm and finishes at 11:00pm. Carriages should arrive for 11:00pm to have departed by 11:15pm. This is a formal event so we encourage students to dress accordingly.
To reserve their ticket students should have paid their money by Friday 10 February 2017.
It is not an automatic right to attend the King John Prom, it is a celebration and students are invited to attend. Students who do not meet school expectations throughout the year will risk having their prom invite withdrawn. If a student has fallen in to this category then parents will be informed.
We would like to make you aware that if you are hiring a limousine for the prom that you check the paperwork of the company as in previous years other schools have had at least one limousine decommissioned due to lack of paperwork and roadworthiness.
As we come to the end of Year 11, a Yearbook has been made to show pictures and memories of the students’ time at the school. It is a hard back book that has been designed with 76 pages of colour photos, tutor messages and happy memories!
If you are interested in purchasing this book please pay, £13.10 via ParentPay. If you are unable to access ParentPay, please contact the finance department in school.
The deadline for ordering the yearbook is Friday 26 May. Yearbooks will be available to collect on Results Day in August.
We will also be sending home a further letter about a school hoodie which will be available to order online. We hope that these products will be a great reminder of students’ time here at The King John School.
