What do Croatia, Skegness and Shipley have in common?
They are the current locations of three of our nine GCSE Science candidates who have their first examination paper at 9.00 tomorrow morning! The Croatian and Shipley visitors should be back tonight (flights and buses willing) but the lure of a week in Skegness with his grandparents has proved too much for one young man!
Of the remaining 6: one has just absconded from the Centre, one refuses to get out of bed and another is undergoing cosmetic dentistry.
Then there were 3: and one of those has to be brought in by a support worker despite the fact she lives about 800 metres away from the Centre and one has an attendance score of less that 25% to date.
I have high hopes for just one pupil who I know will be here tomorrow and doing her very best in her examination and if there is any “fairation” in this world then she should score an A!
