Headteacher's Update

Dear All

Welcome back to EPCS.

In particular, can I offer a warm welcome to our Year 7 students and our returning Year 11s who now form the biggest Year 12 intake we have had at EPCS.  We are delighted you have made the decision to either start or continue your learning journey with us.  It will be a very busy year and should see the school build on the results achieved by our Year 11 and Year 13 students this summer.

All of our Year 13 students intending to go to university were able to do so and in Year 11 our core subject performance in particular continues to enable many of our students to achieve their aspiration to access further study or go into training or employment.  In a competitive world I am committed to doing everything I can to ensure EPCS students can secure a bright future despite the challenge significant changes to examinations and expectations of attainment will bring.

Early Closing 2nd October

Open Evening on Thursday 2 October will be preceded by an early closing of the school at 13:35. Periods 1 to 4 will take place as normal and students will finish with a ten minute registration at 13:25 and leave site at 13:35. Students who require Free School Meals are to collect their lunch at morning break.

Summary of A Level Results

We are pleased with these results which reflect the hard work that our students, alongside their teachers, have put in to their studies. There are many individual success stories and we are delighted to share in these. We wish all our students well as they make their next steps into the world, whether it is starting university or a new career.

I would also like to thank the teachers who have worked with the students to enable so many of them to achieve these grades, as well as the parents who have supported their children through their exams.

Liz Cook, Headteacher.
