A Level / BTEC Results Day
A-Level and BTEC Results Day 2018 will be published Thursday 16th August
School will open from 10am-2pm for students to pick up their results in person.
Unfortunately we are unable to provide grades to friends or family members so transcripts will remain in school until students are able to come and collect them.
Preparation for Results Day
Students should ensure that contact details are up to date on UCAS as universities may need to contact them.Students should check their UCAS (track) account from 8am on the morning of Thursday 16th. If they are holding conditional offers they will be able to see whether or not they have been accepted into their chosen university.
Clearing and Adjustment
Where students feel that their current offer is not the right one for them or they do not meet its conditions they can elect to go into Clearing. Clearing places tend to fill up very quickly on results day so students should check the availability of courses in advance. Staff will be on hand to support conversations with universities on results day.
Where students have done better than anticipated they can go through Adjustment. This means that they can hold their firm offer while searching, through Clearing, for a more competitive course. Again, it is essential that students research the availability of courses in advance. Students can search for courses here: https://www.ucas.com/clearing-launch
Apprenticeships and Employment
We are on hand throughout the summer to support those students who have decided to go on to an apprenticeship or into employment. If you would like to book an appointment with our destinations manager please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Sports Day 2014 - Letter to all Parents/Carers.
Re: ARK Putney Academy – Sports Day 2014
Wimbledon Park Running Track
Monday 14th July, 9.00am – 2.00pm.
This year our annual School Sports Day will take place on Monday 14th July at Wimbledon Park, the organisation of the school day will be as follows:
All students should go from home straight to the Athletics Track at Wimbledon Park. They should arrive to be registered in tutor groups by 9.00am at the latest. They will be dismissed at the end of the event at approximately 2.00pm and we will expect them to make their own way home from Wimbledon Park. On the reverse of this letter is a map and directions which will help you advise your child to find their own way there, easily. In the event of rain it is likely that pupils may be sent home earlier.
All pupils will be expected to remain with us for the day supervised by their form tutors. All competitors should be in their APA PE kit. All children should bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink. For pupils who would usually have a free school dinner, a packed lunch will be provided. Sun cream, hats and plenty water is advised.
We expect this to be a very enjoyable event in which all students have been encouraged to participate. All achievements made on the day will be celebrated at end of term assemblies and the results will be published in APA Newsletter and our website at the end of term.
Please help us to make this a successful day by ensuring your child is suitably prepared and knows what to do.
Thank you for your support.
Yours sincerely, Mr J Hayden
Head of PE
