The government have been in the news again today promoting their plan to have schools set their own term / year dates. The school they quote as their good example is the David Young Community academy in Leeds which apparently operates a 7 term year starting at the beginning of June. Does anyone know how this works? Since GCSE exams run through May and June does this mean children are still taking GCSE's at the start of year 12 and then starting their IB without knowing their results? It must be difficult for external applicants to their sixth form as they wont have finished their year 11 at the time they should be starting year 12? :?

Do they actually allow external candidates, or have aspirations to be another QE Barnet? Or do they do what Colyton does and make externals go back a year on entry??

(Must admit, have not actually Googled this school and had missed news piece!).
