2017-18 Key Dates

Term dates are available here.
Getting ready to start Year 12 – 4th September

On GCSE and A level results days, you should speak to Mrs Hollinshead or Mrs James and discuss your exam results and the courses that they qualify you to study in the sixth form. If you aren’t able to come in to school on those days, please email a photograph of your grades to ahollinshead@wrotham.kent.sch.uk as soon as possible.

Monday 4th September is your first day and we’ll expect to see you at 8.30am. Students who are new to Wrotham should report to reception and submit the enrolment forms that you were given on the induction days or were posted to you, or you can ask for replacements if you have lost them.

Your lessons will start on Monday, so you should follow our dress code and have your summer assignments ready to submit to your teachers. These can be found on Show My Home Work and can be found on the week beginning 26th June if you filter for Year 11 homework. You do not need a username to access these.

14th September

Year 13 Italy Trip – Information Evening at 6.30pm in the Study Centre.

18-22nd September

Induction Testing Week: as part of our programme to help you make sure you’ve chosen the right subjects, each of your teachers will teach you a topic intensively for two weeks and then test you. You will have support from your teachers throughout this period. This should give you a good idea of whether you will be successful in this course over the next two years.
