Weekly College Update

As we come to the end of our fourth week of exams I would like to say a huge thank you to all the S6C staff who have shown such commitment to our students’ college journey. It is truly astounding the amount of time and effort that teachers and support staff dedicate to ensuring our students are prepared for their exams and it really proves what a special place this is. 

To those students who still have exams, I would like to encourage them to speak to someone if they need help with revision and I would like to urge them to make sure they get to college at least half an hour before the start of their exam. All students can take advantage of the free breakfast which we are providing throughout the exam period therefore why not get to college at 8am and avoid the stress of rushing? 

I would like to remind everyone that support is available from the team in college if exam stress is affecting your wellbeing.
