Week 4 Issue 3

Climate Change Protest

Wednesday 18th September 2019

Dear students, parents and carers,

Re: Campaign Against Climate Change

Many in our school community feel strongly about climate change and rightly so. You might know therefore that another young people’s protest in the Campaign Against Climate Change is scheduled for Friday 20th September. 

As previously, this puts the School in a difficult position. On one hand, we respect our students’ passionate concerns about climate change and indeed the cause itself. On the other hand, if the School were to authorise absence from school for this, we would be agreeing to students missing important learning each time – and moreover, we agree to students taking part in a public protest without our supervision. We would be in a terrible position if something unpleasant or dangerous happened and the School had condoned, indeed encouraged students’ participation. 

Every day in school is important for students’ learning, including new content, assessments and coursework. We all know that missing lessons puts students at a disadvantage. The administration and management of attendance around the protest is considerable, as is the additional teacher-time spent enabling students who miss lessons to catch up. 

While we understand why some students might want to attend the next protest, we urge them not to and we would appreciate parents’ and carers’ support with this.  Parents and carers: if your child does, with your permission, take part in the protest, please inform the School of their absence in the usual way. 

I hope to have outlined here a clear picture of how the School both supports the climate change cause and needs also to fulfil its duty to deliver education and not agree to activities during school time over which we have no control. 

Following this letter is some advice from the Metropolitan Police about the protests who are concerned about young people’s safety.  

Best regards,

Ms Pugh

Week 2 Issue 1

Congratulations to our A-Level students!

St Marylebone’s Year 13 have lots to celebrate today, having received a great set of A-Level results.  These are the product of hard work and commitment, marking the start of exciting new chapters in their lives. 

Desirable places at universities and colleges all over the country, and in apprenticeships and employment have been secured, across all disciplines and sectors, including all the arts, humanities, languages, business, social sciences, classical civilisation, engineering, sciences, maths, ICT and computing, medicine, English literature, law, economics, politics, health care …  and many combinations of these.  

Six students are going to Oxford or Cambridge and three students are going to study medicine – with some others looking at similar pathways after a gap year.  
 

Overall, the A-Level grades this year are really pleasing: 

25% of students achieved three A grades or better.

73% of students achieved three or more A* – C grades.

90% are A*- C.

38% are A* – A.

These grades are a credit to our young people, despite all the unpredictability of the examination system, societal pressures and myriad distractions. Well done to you all!  We have loved having you here and wish you all the best for your futures.

A big thank you to all the parents and carers whose support for their daughters and sons, and for the School, during the two extraordinary sixth form years. I hope you feel as proud as we do of the young people leaving St Marylebone.   

And huge thanks also to the teachers whose passion and commitment to the students has enabled such achievements and, moreover, the students’ personal growth and development.
