A Word from Miss Cook, Head Teacher

05 April 2019

It is amazing to think we have reached the final day of Term 2 already.  It has been very busy over the last week or so with our Spring Concert last Thursday evening followed by our S2 Battle of the Bands this Wednesday; more about this later.  Last Friday afternoon saw many of our Senior Pupils attend an extra study session put on by staff across all subjects in the school. Many pupils took advantage of this to get some extra tips or support for forthcoming exams and I would also like to thank staff for putting this on.  Please can I ask parents/carers to encourage young people in S4/5/6 to adopt a regular study pattern over the holidays and to balance this with some leisure time too.  Extra support for study timetables, tailored for an individual’s exam timetable, can be found on the MyExamApp. A real focus on preparation for exams over the holidays will mean the few days back at school after the Easter holidays, and before going on exam leave, can be used for last minute questions/support from teachers.   During exam leave the Library will be open on a Monday and Wednesday should senior pupils wish to use it to study in (please refer to the letter I sent out to all S4/5/6 Parents/Carers in early March.  For those on exam leave, food is also available at breaks and lunches at our Food Court. If attending school for exams or to study pupils should attend in uniform so they are easily recognisable as members of our school community.  Teachers will be available throughout the exam leave, during normal period times, should pupils wish to see them with questions about coursework or their forthcoming exams. The school canteen will be available for use for all our seniors as usual throughout the whole exam diet, and free school meal entitlement also continues throughout this time.

Finally, staff here at Knox Academy would like to wish all of our seniors sitting exams the very best in their performance.  Our Leavers’ Ceremony for all pupils leaving school this session, whether S4/S5 or S6, will take place from 9 am - midday on Wednesday 24 April.  A massive thank you to our local Tesco for sponsoring this.
