    • b) they have no lesson period 5.
    • There is no study leave in the morning . Any study periods must be spent in a study area working. There is no such excuse as “I’ve done all my work”.
    • Study leave is a privilege and can be withdrawn at any time if deadlines are not met and work is not to a satisfactory standard.
  • 13. Attendance
    • Students attend school every day.
    • If a student knows that he will be absent due to an appointment etc, then a note or phone call must be provided in advance. If not, then the absence may be recorded as unauthorised. (LEA regulations)
    • If a student is ill, then we ask for a phone call to be made to the office by 8.30 am of that day, preferably followed by a note on the day of return.
  • 14. Punctuality
    • Arrival at school should be no later than 8.40 am
    • Sanctions for poor punctuality:
    • Verbal warning
    • Inform parents
    • Temporary withdrawal of study leave
    • After school detentions
    • Permanent withdrawal of study leave
    • Poor punctuality to lessons will receive similar sanctions
  • 15. Uniform
    • 6 th Formers are expected to act as role models for younger pupils and behave in a business like manner.
    • Students have enrolled at Camp Hill on the understanding that it is a school, where boys wear uniform.
    • If they do not wear the correct uniform then they may be sent home to get the appropriate clothing. Time lost from lessons will be made up after school. If this persists, then the Headmaster is likely to want to discuss their future at the school.
  • 16. Student Planner
    • All students have a planner.
    • They should be used to help organise all activities, not just school work.
    • Parents will be conscious of how much work is being done at home. They may wish to check planners to see if work is written down. If parents have any concerns about homework they should contact school.
    • The planner contains a large amount of 6 th Form information which may be of interest to parents.

    • This forms the first stage of a full A-level and most subjects are tested through 2 modules, each of which is examined separately.
    • These AS subjects, are scored out of 200 UMS (Unified Mark Scheme)
    • For Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Music, 3 modules will be taken, making the UMS score out of 300.
  • 19. Examinations
    • A2
    • The second half of a full A level consisting of 2 modules for most, with 3 modules for the Sciences, Maths and Music.
    • A2 will also be marked out of 200 (2 modules) or 300 (3 modules) UMS.
    • Full A level is therefore marked out of 400 or 600 UMS (AS + A2).
