Message for Future Huish Student
Dear future Huish student
Following the UK Governments decision to close all Schools and Colleges from Friday 20th March 2020 the GCSE exams scheduled to take place in May and June will not be going ahead as planned.
Regardless of what happens, if you have already applied to join us your place is secured and we look forward to seeing you in September. If you are yet to apply, online applications are still open and we will phone you with your offer.
We will continue to provide information and details as soon as it is available across all of our social media and our website. We want to reassure you we will do everything possible to make sure this does not change your plans for your future.
Court Fields School
Message from Bridgwater & Taunton College
Please can you share the statement below with your Year 11 pupils and their parents. I hope it will go some way to relieve the concerns that they no doubt currently have.
Following the governments update on the evening of 18 March, scheduled GSCE exams for May and June will not be going ahead as planned. Therefore, those people who already have a conditional offer will have their offer updated to unconditional.
For those who are due to be interviewed, please don’t worry, our teams will contact you by phone for a conversation about the course and your predicated grades. You will be offered a place at the College for September.
We are looking forward to the College returning to normal and seeing you in September. If you have an offer, please take a look at our enrichment pages and sign up for one of our academies due to start in September as usual. In the meantime, we will continue to keep you updated. Rest assured, you will have a place at College and we are already planning how we will ensure the start of term is as smooth as possible!
GCSEs have been cancelled. Can I still get a place in College?
Yes, you will get a place at College. We are working with the Department of Education to fully understand how you will be graded for your GSCEs, but in the meantime, we will be offering you an unconditional place at College based on your interview and predicted grades.
Will this impact the application process for future students?
This won’t impact our application process for future students: interviews will take place by phone and you should apply in the normal way. Any potential student who can’t participate in an interview because of illness can have their interview rearranged.
GCSEs have been cancelled. What will my grades be?
We are working with the exam boards and the Department of Education to understand what their plans are. We will update you as soon as they make an announcement.
