WEEK 32 - Friday 27 May 2022

Hello and welcome to this week's Year 11 Blog.

This week marks the end of the second full week of GCSE Exams for the Year 11s and the students have more than earned a rest.

I have been incredibly pleased at how well the students have approached their exams and the school has been a hive of activity. The importance of teamwork is paramount during this period and I would like to thank the staff who helped to coordinate the organisation and smooth running of the exam period. Mrs Meir and the Exams team deserve a special mention for all their hard work ensuring the students are fully prepared before sitting their exams.

As previously mentioned as we approach the end of Year 11, attention has turned towards the ‘Prom’... Prom is now an integral part of schools calendars across the country and we are no different. What really sets us apart from the rest however, is the opportunity we offer through our Prom Outfit Hire Shop. Launched last year, the service enables students to hire a prom outfit - new or nearly new suits, dresses and accessories - for a nominal cost of £10 (to cover cleaning) and we hope providing this service means that the Prom experience can be enjoyed by as many students as possible without too much worry about the cost.

We have created a hire shop website (which is available to Year 11 students through their Google sign in), we are still uploading outfit images but many, many outfits are already available to view. To enquire about hire or to organise a viewing/fitting, please contact prom@hessleacademy.com Once again, thank you to everyone that has supported us with this venture.

Both the Prom Tickets and Yearbook are available to purchase on ParentPay or the school reception, if you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

I would like to wish you all a happy and restful half term and we will see you all back in school on the 6 June.

Regards

Mr Julian

Head of Year 11

Mrs Lacey

Assistant Head of Year 11
