Welcome back - Start of the Summer term

Updated - Tuesday 26th April 2022

I hope you all had a good break and managed to have some time to relax and unwind over the Easter period. I can't quite believe we're already in the final term of this academic year.

As ever, this summer term will be an important one as we support and stretch our students to achieve their targets, to prepare them for their exams and to help steer them in their next steps. Key areas of focus for the next 6 weeks are:

1. Attendance at Exams

We know that for many of our students, sitting exams this year will be challenging for a whole host of reasons. We have already seen some of this through our recent round of GCSE mock exams in English and maths. Attendance at these exams is critical and over the next couple of weeks we will do all we can to support our students in preparation for them. 

2. Achievement

We will continue to focus on supporting our students to achieve. This will include targeted revision sessions, small group sessions and workshops to ensure that our students reach or exceed their target grades..

Let’s continue to work together to help our students succeed and progress.

We are now in the countdown to Christmas and the end of the first term here at West Thames College. For us it is business as usual: classes are going ahead as planned.


In line with the latest government guidelines we have implemented a range of safety measures to ensure that we can continue to provide a safe working and learning environment for everyone. All of our students have been fully briefed on the measures that we have put in place since September and we continue to monitor the  situation locally, regionally and nationally. We will continue to act in accordance with the latest government guidance.
