Year 11 Leaving Date

Dear all parents, carers and Year 11 pupils
Download the letter - Y11 Leavers ltr
Earlier this week the Welsh Government announced that Year 11s may leave on the 28th May 2021, if the school is satisfied that all evidence for their CDGs has been generated. Following this announcement Prestatyn High would like to confirm that Year 11s can leave on the 28th May which is the last day before Whit half term begins.
In order for Year 11s to formally leave on this date pupils must:
  • Produce enough assessment evidence for each of their GCSEs so a true, fair and accurate CDG can be awarded
  • Complete all BTEC, Welsh Bacc or similar vocational units fully so a true, fair and accurate CDG can be awarded
  • Complete any other work fully as directed by their teachers so that all qualifications are completed to as high a standard as possible
  • Attend any additional catch up sessions if directed by your subject teacher in order to complete a qualification
  • Continue to attend their college courses until directed by their tutors
Year 11s must also attend the Provisional CDG sharing meeting in early June (date to follow).
All Year 11s who have signed up to join Prestatyn 6th Form must attend A-level preparation lessons in the subjects they have chosen to study. These sessions will be vital for their success when they begin their L3 courses and help bridge any gaps in knowledge due to the pandemic. They will take place during the final half term and pupils will be expected to attend on a part time basis throughout this time. A timetable of these preparation lessons will be given out before Year 11s leave on the last Friday. Pupils attending do not have to wear school uniform.
Please contact Mrs. Williams if any pupils wish to donate items of uniform, this will greatly support our community during this very challenging time. All donated items will be laundered and pressed ready for sharing with families.
On the 28th May, all Year 11s will have the opportunity to say goodbye to their teachers, friends and the rest of Year 11. Refreshments and farewell activities will also be available during this time.
At this moment there are no plans to have a formal ROA due to COVID-19 restrictions. As soon as this guidance changes we will be in touch.
