Exams clarification

All students should attend their normal block 2 lesson for quiet study. This is not time to be in the library, lounge or anywhere else but your classroom.

You can only attend activities in block 1 if you have signed for this,  if you do not have exam you should be in your classroom.

IB Diploma exams -G2 form (only for G12 teachers)

Every year the feedback we give as teachers to the IB helps the exams get better. There are always mistakes in the exams and it is important to point them out. This also helps our students as questions that were unclear can be corrected. This year the G2 form comes as a survey. As you receive the exams from me, please take some time to complete the survey. See the notice form the IB below. You can also find this information on ‘My IB’ .

“The links for the teacher’s comments on examination papers form is now available. This year, you will find some additional questions regarding the accessibility of the examination papers to students with special educational needs and for all candidates regarding gender, religion and ethnicity. There is also an additional field where teachers can fill in their own email address and when completed this will generate an email summary of the form for their records. This field, along with the teacher’s name field and the Diploma Programme coordinators email address field, are all optional so there is no need to complete them unless the teacher or their IB coordinator requires a record of the form.

Thank you for supporting this important process.”

G11 & 12 Lounge

It is not nice to see a fantastic initiative of festive decorations ruined by careless people leaving their mess around. Yesterday I had to clean the mess left in the lounge at the end of the day. This is a reminder that your exit privileges at lunch can be lost. G11 & 12 are not allowed to bring food from outside into the lounge (or the school!).  The reason is simple we have a no nuts policy and you cannot guaranty the food you purchase outside is nut free. So NO MacDonald’s or  fried rice or any food from outside please. If you are using plates and cutlery from the cafeteria please return them.

For your information, the graffiti wall will be cleaned over the holidays.
