GCSE Graphics Sketchbook


6th October 2023

Dear Parent/Carer

In order to make Graphics cost effective for parents/carers we have a system in place to ensure every child has the opportunity to access most key resources in school, but we do ask that GCSE students pay for their own sketchbooks for coursework and exam projects.

For Year 11 students the requirement is two A3 sketchbooks, one for the mock exam and the other for the GCSE exam project. The first Year 11 sketchbook should be paid as soon as possible, ready for books to be given out for students to start their mock exam. The second book should be paid for by the end of December 2023, ready for the GCSE exam project in January 2024.

We buy the sketchbooks in bulk so the price is heavily discounted. The normal retail price would be circa £8. We can offer them for £3. This cost will be put on your ParentPay account to make payment simpler. Each student should bring proof of payment, such as a screenshot of the receipt, to their lesson.

If you have any questions please let us know.

Yours sincerely
