Ben Leonard

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that we have lost a member of our school family.

Ben Leonard died following a tragic accident on the Great Orme near Llandudno on Sunday 26th August 2018.

Ben attended Denton Community College between 2013 and 2018. He was an active member of our community as a prefect, librarian and regular performer in our school productions.

Ben was a very popular student at the school and will be remembered fondly by all those that knew him.

At this time our thoughts and condolences are with his family, friends and the community he has left behind.

Mr G Rule

(Headteacher)

Any student or member of staff affected by the loss of Ben will be given access to trained councillors and support services if required.

GCSE Timelable Letter – Sep 2017

 

6th September 2017

Dear Parent/Carer,

The examination boards have now published the dates for the 2017/2018 G.C.S.E. examinations. These dates have been published as final by the examination boards and apply across the whole country. They cannot be altered in any way except by the examination boards.
Attached is a list of all the examination dates which currently apply to students at Denton Community College.
Please note the dates for some exams, such as Dance and Drama, are to be set by the school later in the year when the Moderator contacts us. Similarly the practical Art examination comprising 10 hours of supervised work will be scheduled prior to the main exam session. French speaking tests must also be scheduled.

In a limited number of instances there are 2 opportunities to sit the same examination; your child will be informed which examination to prepare for by their teacher.
PE exams are online, on demand tests and therefore the students will be entered when their teachers feel they are ready. The students will be informed of dates and times by their PE teacher.

 

All students will receive an individual examination timetable and a personal statement of entry to check well in advance of any examinations that they are entered for.

 

Your son/daughter will not be awarded a grade in any subject where an examination is missed. Indeed, you may be asked to pay for any examination for which your child is entered but does not attend. It is therefore vital that your child attends all examinations scheduled for a subject.

 

If you have any questions regarding this matter please contact me as soon as possible.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mrs Gill Rule – Examinations officer
