Calendar - Key Dates


We operate by the following principles:

1. Additions to the calendar may only be made with notice of at least half a term.

2. An update will be published every half term, this will be updated on the website, outlook and on sims.

3. All trips must be approved through the online Evolve System, an addition here is not approval for your trip.

4. Fully completed Evolve Trip Packs, should be submitted 2 weeks before a trip leaves. Unless it is a residential when it must be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to departure. Please be advised if these timings are not adhered to the trip itself may not take place.

5. It is recognised that students qualifying for the next round of a competition (or similar) may have to be treated as an exception to principle 1. It is recognised that some opportunities come up that we would not wish our students to miss out on. These will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis and the appropriate member of the SLT will decide upon this.

6. It is the expectation that there will be no external trips in the first term to ensure department areas are focussing on their bridging curriculums and that there is minimum disruption to Year 11 timetable
