May-June CIE Certificates – The May-June 2020 IGCSE and AS CIE examination certificates are ready for collection from the Front Office. Parents and Guardians are invited to come and sign and collect their child’s certificates. These certificates are very important and are not easily replaced so should be well looked after. 

Parcels for Boarders – Having received numerous requests from parents to send parcels to their boarder children, we sought medical advice on our current ‘no parcel’ policy and will as such, be making an adjustment. Any parcel sent to the school must be well wrapped in plastic as will be disinfected on arrival. The parcel will also be held in a form of quarantine for three days before distribution.

Form 4 and Upper 6 Boarder Checking Out Expectations: 

In the case where one’s final examination ends too late to allow for a boarder to sign out on the day of their last examination, the pupil must be signed out from hostel by the end of the next day. 

MCC 2018 Magazine – The outstanding 2018 College magazine was recently distributed to all legible Form 3 to Upper 6 pupils, and will be issued to legible Form 2 pupils on their return to physical school. We apologise for the delay in distribution.
