As you will be aware, TCI Government has announced that all island schools will now remain closed through to the end of the academic year. Sadly, the rules of lock down and social distancing prevent schools from holding all gatherings, including the annual Valedictory Service and Graduation event. We do hope to commemorate Graduation in some way, but regret that this will not be as a group ceremony. 

As is normal at the end of Trinity Term, our Years 11, 12 and 13 students will not receive a report, since they are matriculated for examinations with Cambridge. We are currently undertaking the administration process required by Cambridge for the award of certified grades, in lieu of exams, for these IGCSE, AS and A-Level classes.

Given the exceptional circumstances of school closure and lock down, all other students, from Years 7 to 10, will not sit internal end-of-year examinations; nor will they receive the normal Trinity report. Instead, students will each receive a term summary indicating for each subject studied an attainment grade; an effort grade; the number of assignments set by the teacher; and the number of assignments duly completed by the student.

In what remains of the month of June, our online teaching and learning continues, remembering that 8th June is a National Holiday for HM Queen Elizabeth’s birthday. Details will be issued closer to the time regarding the collection of all school books in advance of the end of the school year on Friday 26th June. Parents are courteously reminded that all books must be returned and accounts settled (or agreed with the Principal and Bursar) before Year Reports or transcripts can be issued.  British West Indies Collegiate will re-open to students for the new academic year on Wednesday 2nd September.

With best regards,
Mr Anthony Wilkinson Vice-Principal
