Welcome to Year 12 & Start of Term

Welcome to the Compton Sixth Form

Start of term 2021

Covid 19 Testing 

Friday 3rd September & Tuesday 7th September - Year 12 & 13

Testing In line with government guidance, all schools are expected to test all students twice before they return to school in September. We did this very successfully in March of this year and will set up and operate our test centre as before. All students will be familiar with the testing process, other than our new Year 7 students and external Year 12 students.

Staff will be hand to explain the process and offer support if it is needed. If you have any queries about the testing system, please contact your child’s Year Manager.

Year 12 - Timings for testing will be in the letter below titled 'Arrangements for the start of term'.

Year 13 - Testing will be completed in tutor groups. Details are in the letter below titled 'Arrangements for the start of term'.
