Key Stage 3 Bulletin – Number 6

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to a new term.

This month, we have students sitting external examinations for GCSE and AS/A2 level. They will take place from the 9th until the 30th January. It will be necessary for some of the examinations to be held in school and so we ask that all students respect the signs asking for silence around the pertinent rooms and also closing certain areas.

Inclement Weather

The weather continues to be cold and unsettled. In the event of any emergency school closure or inclement weather, please ring 08447 70 75 76 and enter code 62237. This is a dedicated telephone line which will provide you with the relevant information for Crickhowell High School. Alternately, visit the School Closure Notices on the School Website. This information can also be found in the Student Planner on page 11.
