School Update (4th April 2020)

We are currently recruiting for a number of roles for September 2020. Please visit our virtual recruitment page for details of the exciting positions that we have and for further details on the virtual application process

Dear Parents/ Carers, we have now come to the end of what has been a challenging term for all. During the Spring break Ark Boulton will continue to support our families and are available to be contacted through our email: Please continue to monitor your SMS messages and post as these we will be our primary methods of contact in the coming weeks. Our teachers are working to ensure that the website is continually updated with new learning content and we will be sending further guidance in time for the new term. We recently sent a text message with a link to a short survey regarding access to online materials at home. Please complete this so that we are able to support and tailor the resources we provide. Finally, we must continue to show our support for NHS and all other keyworkers who continue to serve on the frontline, by staying indoors and practicing social distancing should you need to go out.

As you are no doubt aware Year 11s will not be sitting formal GCSE examinations this Summer. We are currently receiving guidance from Ofqual on how grades will be attained by students. We will, of course update our Year 11 families and parents as soon as we have definitive details.

Please click here if you need any additional information regarding free school meals.

We all have our part to play in helping to stop the spread of Coronavirus. This means we must stay at home to protect the NHS and help save lives. Please continue to follow health guidance from the NHS and the Government.

Thank you to everyone for your understanding during these challenging times and a heartfelt thanks to our NHS and key workers who are working so hard to look after us all.

Year 11

Dear Year 11,

We know that revision can be challenging. You need to decide what it is that needs revising, the method of revision to choose and the resources to use to undertake that revision. To make things a little bit easier we have created these pages to navigate you through the revision process.

This is a really important time of your life and we know that the time up to the completion of your final examination can be stressful. Research shows that the most effective revision technique is to complete examination questions. Your teachers have collated these and we have added them to these pages. Part of the revision process is ensuring that you identify questions that you find difficult and use your revision guides to help you fill the gaps. Sitting and reading a revision guide for hours on end is not an efficient revision technique, great revision means applying the skills that you have learnt.

Remember that when you have finished your examinations you will have at least 10 weeks without school! Imagine how enjoyable this will be knowing that you have given 100% to your studies. Finally, all your teachers have their fingers crossed for you and can't wait to congratulate you on results day, having achieved fantastic GCSE grades. Good luck!

The Ark Boulton Team.
