    Would it be possiblr for a GCSE calendar of exam dates to be published 2011 or where to find the link please?

  • Matthew Ingram says:

    You may also find the following link useful – it has all exam dates and times across all exam boards. If you click ‘Accept’ on the home page, you will then be sent through to a search which will allow you to compile and print exam timetables for the whole season, though some practical exams etc. may not be on there.

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      Thanks very much Matthew – very useful site!

      Once all our exam entries are complete – we will still publish the school exam timetable here. Different exam boards have their exams on different days and of course there’s the extra level of confusion generated because some subjects then have different papers.

  • Sarah says:

    Is there any information online regarding catchment areas please?

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      We hope to have the updated prospectus on the website (which includes information about feeder primaries and catchment) very soon. In the meantime, if you phone the school directly on 01443 237701 someone will be able to answer your question.

  • Ann Dale says:

    There seems to be some confusion about Year 9 options evening.On this website it clearly states this will take place on Wed March 9th,so having left my diary clear,I am quite concerned that I have been told that it has already taken place this month.Can you please clarify. Thanks.

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      Thank you for pointing out this discrepancy. Yes the options evening took place last Wednesday. I can only apologise for any inconvenience caused. Information about ALL options will be available on the website in the next day or so.

  • Tracey Spiller says:

    Please could you let me know when the exam timetables will be published for Year 8 and Year 10 pupils.
    Many Thanks

  • sian price says:

    Please could you tell me what is required for the art set for year 7 starters.
    Many Thanks

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      The Art Pack can be bought as a pre-made pack at a discount price from school. I will ask Mrs J Gold, Head of Art to advise on the price and contents at the beginning of term.

  • S Phillips says:

    we have lost uniform all with names is it possible for the parents to look through lost property have lost a coat and pant fleece amongst other items.

  • A Lloyd says:

    Can I ask why pupils have been asked to list ALL daily subjects in their homework diaries, when there is may not be any homework in some of those subjects?

    Apparently they have been told not to “argue” the case, but to just do it.

    In some cases I’d agree with this, but in this case it seems to be a futile exercise.

    Can they just list the subjects they have homework in…surely that would be more sensible, and would mean that the already limited space in the PLK wouldn’t be taken up unnecessarily.

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      We have found that in many cases pupils were not recording homework in their PLK. Writing in the names of the subjects has resolved this problem for many pupils. It has also provided pupils with a more immediate reminder of which timetable week we are currently in as “wrong week” is the main reason for pupil forgetting books.

  • ceri masters says:

However I do not want her to miss any important tests\exams… Will they be finished by this time?? This will not be a regular occurance. Eargerly awaiting your reply many thanks Lisa.

  • J Lloyd says:

    Can you please advise what is happening regarding Work Experience.

    My son is currently in Year 10 – so I assume it is taken in Year 11?

    What is the process for getting them a position somewhere as I have an opportunity that I am able to apply for for him but need dates.
    Thanks

  • STEPH says:

    HI HOW DO U CONTACT THE SCHOOL USEING INTERNET TO BOOK A ABSENCE PLEASE

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      An absence due to illness must be phoned in to the office on 01443 237701 and followed up with a written note. A planned absence for family holiday must be on an absence form which the head of year can provide you with.

  • A Lloyd says:

    Hi. On the Y Pant website calendar, it states that Friday 24th May 2013 is the “official leaving date” for years 11, 12 and 13.

    My stepson is in Year 11 and is due to take GCSE exams, so can you confirm that this “leaving date” is correct – it will enable us to plan any potential holiday dates. Thanks.

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      This is the correct date. Welsh Government rules now state that we cannot give students study leave prior to exams. There will be exams before this date and students will be released from lessons for these. Before planning holidays please also bear in mind that the GCSE, AS and A-level exams continue after half term as well. Many exams take place towards the end of June. We don’t yet have the exam timetable for the summer but will publish this when we do.

  • Nazan Nash says:

    Hi Miss Bunce,

    Could you kindly confirm if you have an update on GCSE exam dates for year 11′s please.

    Many thanks

  • Nazan Nash says:

    That’s great. Thank you

  • Carol says:

    Hello
    I missed year 9 parents evening due to being stuck in traffic. Is there any possibility of speaking to or emailing my daughter’s teachers to discuss her progress?
    Thanks

  • Natalie Smith says:

    I wish to take my daughter of year 7 abroad on holiday from half day 8th May to return to school -16 May, but I don’t want her to miss out on any vital tests/exams! Please could you advise if these dates are appropriate, as I would like to book it today if possible not to miss out on such a great holiday! Many thanks.

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      Dates for tests for year 7 are not confirmed yet. You can see anything that has been confirmed on the calendar. Any requests for time off for family holidays must be made in writing to the Headteacher.

  • Rosie Pretorius says:

    Hi there, Do you hire out your sports hall? I am looking to hire a sports facility for my local adult netball team? We need a training venue. Thank you!

  • j Richards says:

    Hello, my daughter is due to start high school in September 2015, whilst I appreciate it’s premature, I was wondering how I would go about putting her down for Y Pant. We live in Tonyrefail, so are we out of the catchment area? Many Thanks

    • Mr. M. Powell says:

      Hello

      Tonyrefail is not in the Y Pant natural catchment area but this does not prevent you from applying. Please refer to the Admissions Dept in RCT for any issues relating to application (although it is, as you point out, still early days!)

      Regards

      Mark Powell (Headteacher)

  • J Richards says:

    Many thanks for your prompt reply

  • Ross Urwin says:

    Next term my daughter will be joining set 1 year 9. I was wondering if someone could email me the topics to be learnt in History this year, the books being read in English and the title of the maths book they will be using.

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      Apologies – we’ve had massive internet problems in school today so I’ve only just picked this up. I’ll see if I can find this out but I know a lot of staff are leaving for holidays tonight so it might be tricky.

  • C.Lewis says:

    How are the year 7 children placed into their Classes obviously more able in A1 then A2 etc??

  • Hi,

    I wonder if you could give Lauren Baldwin in year 7C1 some information on how she would receive music lessons after school etc. please.

    Many thanks

    Lisa

    • Mr T. Breeze says:

      Hi Lisa,

      I shall try and catch up with Lauren this week, but since I don’t teach her, it might take a day or two! If Lauren would like to pop to the main reception in the meantime, Mrs Grant can give her a letter which explains everything.

      Hope that helps!

  • When is year 7 parents evening please.

    Thank you

    Lisa

  • Rachel Morgan says:

    Hello, are there lockers provided for pupils? Carrying an umbrella, school books pencil case etc packed lunch pe kit and food for home economic practical sessions seems an awful lot for a year 7 child.
    Thank you
    Rachel

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      Unfortunately we don’t have space for lockers in school. If your son/daughter speaks to their home economics teacher they may be able to drop their food off at the beginning of the day.

  • Leann says:

    How do I contact my sons yr 7 maths teacher asap please? The login for the on line maths homework isn’t working so he’s been unable to do his homework. There’s nothing I can do to reset the password, it says talk to the school teacher. Thanks. Leann

  • laurie griffiths says:

    what do I need to do when I have to leave in lesson time for a orthodontist appointment?

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      Bring the letter into school. Your form tutor will sign it to say they have seen it. On the day, take the signed letter to reception and they will give you a pink slip meaning you are authorised to leave school.

  • Alison Herridge says:

    Please can you clarify when the PLK books are checked and when we need to sign them. My son in year 7 says that his teacher has told him his book needs to signed on a tuesday for that week. Makes no sense when week and homework not completed.

    • Miss L. Bunce says:

      PLKs are checked by the form tutor for the previous week. This week for example we are checking the last week of term.
