Letter to parents and students

Dear Student and Parent,

I wanted to communicate an update on the current situation in relation to Leeds Sixth Form College.

Firstly, I want to state how well most students have responded to this disruption to their learning and lives. We have seen high levels of engagement and had positive feedback during what has been an unprecedented period of difficulty.

During the current situation, students have completed online work experience activities and are starting second year A Level work. Students should continue working remotely and engaging with teachers online until the end of the academic year on 15 July.

Students have now been working remotely for almost three months, which is far longer than any of us anticipated. They have had a major disruption to their lives and we hope that they can overcome any fatigue they may be facing. We encourage all students to maintain their efforts in the final few weeks. One thing is certain – this time will pass and students will be back in classes and planning their next steps. Students need to keep that long-term goal in mind. We will do all we can to support them.

Our intention is to return to Park Lane in September, however the exact details of this are yet to be decided. It is a very uncertain picture at the moment, but we ensure to keep you informed with updates.

One definite date to keep in mind is AS Level results day, which is Thursday 13 August. Details on the format of the day will be sent out at a later date.
