We thought you would be glad to know that Abigail Finch, an ex-student who went to Pembroke College, Oxford University from our school to read Psychology and Philosophy has been awarded a First Class Degree in her Final Honours School examinations.
I am sure you will be as pleased as we are to hear of this excellent result.
A level results day for Year 12 and 13 is Thursday 13 August and GCSE results day for Year 11 is Thursday 20 August.
Students in those year groups can collect their results from 10am in L block (Main Reception).
Year 10 will receive their GCSE Science results in September when school reopens after the holidays.
We are very pleased to be able to send information home this week to parents/ carers of students in Key Stage 3 giving details of our new uniform. The exciting new design is to be worn by all students in Years 7 to 10 from the start of the new school year in September 2015 – (Year 11 students will be permitted to continue wearing our current uniform).
We have been working on this important development for many months and, after consulting with students, parents, governors and teachers, the final product is now ready to be presented to our parents and students with details of how they can get hold of it in time for the new school year.
Each part of the new uniform has undergone thorough evaluation to ensure that it will be both hardwearing and economical while looking both contemporary and smart for both male and female students. All students who have had a chance to try it on already have said how much they like it and we are confident that many more students and parents will agree.
The information leaflet and information being sent home this week to parents in Years 7, 8 and 9 can be viewed here: New Uniform at The Corsham School Yr 7-9
(Parents of Year 6 students joining us in September will receive full details in their induction pack which is also being sent out shortly. This will include details of a special uniform Sales Event taking place on Tuesday 23rd June.)

As you know The Corsham School has Leading Edge status which means that it is recognised nationally as being an effective and innovative learning organisation.
Linked below is an article written by Mrs Bartlett, who is an associate Headteacher responsible for Teaching and Learning. The article has just been published in the Leading Edge journal and I wanted to share this with you.
Please read the linked document below if you drive your child/ren to school. It contains important information about the new Campus Car Park and dropping off guidelines.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
Congratulations to all of our year 11 students on a fantastic set of GCSE results and a huge thank you to all of their teachers.
64% of students achieved at least 5 passes at grade C and above including English and Maths, with over 70% achieving 5 or more higher passes.
This is a worthy reward for all of the hard work put in by students, teachers and mentors alike.
Over 31% of our students gained at least 3 grade A or A* passes and as usual there were some stunning individual performances.
Congratulations to all A Level and AS Level students for an extremely pleasing set of results.
At A Level, over half of all entries resulted in an A*, A or B grade with more than a quarter at grade A* and A, and a huge 10% reaching A*.
There were some stunning individual performances by students accessing all A* grades and securing places at both Oxford and Cambridge universities.
At AS Level, there was an improvement on last year with a 91% pass rate and a quarter of all entries reaching grade A.
A huge thank you to all staff for their hard work and dedication.
