Robin Catchpole Lecture Weds 6th

Dear All,

This lecture is earlier than normal this year so I have been caught by surprise – sorry for the short notice.

Robin Catchpole, an astronomer from Cambridge University gives a lecture in the Forum in Barrow every year. If you have any interest in astronomy / cosmology this is unmissable.

7.30pm – Main Hall – Forum – Barrow – Weds 6th September

Year 13 – unifying physics paper

Dear Year 13 – please remember that everyone in the country sat the same paper as you and that you are up against everyone else’s performance, you are not up against the paper.

I haven’t seen it yet but as everyone thought it was hard (nationally) the grade boundaries will be suitably low.

Mr Rice and I have every confidence in you. You have been a fantastic year 13 group and I am not expecting any surprises in the Summer ESPECIALLY not as a result of one bad paper.

Take care, enjoy the Summer and if you haven’t returned your text book yet – DO IT NOW!!!


Mr T
