Yr 13 Rearranged Date Leavers Day

As you know, we had planned to gather our Year 13 pupils this Friday, to celebrate their SJP journey in a liturgy, followed by a celebratory barbecue. However, in light of the recent rise in infection rates in the North West, and the delay in reducing social distance guidelines, we have had to take the decision to postpone the event.

We hope to be able to rearrange to the week beginning 12th July and will keep in touch with your son/daughter via Google Classroom to update them. Can I ask you to remind them to keep checking their year group page for notifications please? 

We understand our pupils will be disappointed, as are we, but we are hopeful that we will be able to come together before the end of this academic year, should Public Health England guidelines allow.

In the meantime, we would like your child to return any College property, such as textbooks, fobs and locker keys in their possession. All loaned laptops should also be returned. The College will not issue exam certificates to any student owing College property, and will be obliged to recover the costs of any textbooks/laptops that are not returned to us. 

We are looking forward to a happy and success-filled results day on 10th August. We have already requested your son/daughter supply us with their own personal email from which to receive their results. Can I ask that you check they have done this please, just in case we need to communicate electronically this year?

We hope our pupils will plan to join us at SJP on the rearranged date and we look forward to seeing them at this time. Please do not hesitate to contact us at the college, should your son/daughter require any support in their future plans during this transitional period. 

Kind regards
