Find out about Year 11 choices, academic intervention and extra sessions designed to support students in their final year of main school.
We feel that it is crucial for you as parents and carers to be aware of and help us promote all the opportunities which are designed to support and enhance achievement for our students. The year group as a whole achieved well in their first year of GCSEs in Year 10 and we want to build on this success.
Our approach to Year 11, GCSE studies and exams has been refined over recent years with excellent outcomes and growing success, and we look forward to working with you and the students to achieve even better this year.
Year 11 students have been working exceptionally hard this term, preparing for their final exams and especially those with practical subjects and the recent work on controlled assessments and practical exams.
The students have engaged fully with the revision programme at school and at home and have completed a huge amount of exam preparation work.
Year 11 students have been working exceptionally hard after school and at home, preparing and completing revision for the final exams in the summer.
The assemblies since the mock exams have covered the 'opportunities' that will be offered and making the most of these, which the students certainly have.
This student booklet offers practical advice to students linked to the 'Do's' and 'Don'ts' for revision, a range of revision techniques to try out and advice for the lead up, night before, morning and day of the exams.
A revision timetable outline can also be found here with instructions on how to plan and organise the time between now and the exams, setting out the exact timing for revision of students' subjects.
Preparation and organisation are key and this timetable really does help.
We are committed towards ensuring that our Year 11s are able to maximise their exam potential and the Year 11 Mock Exams play an key role in supporting this drive.
It has therefore been great to see the countless examples of individual student success highlighted by the results and I would like to thank the Year 11 students for the effort towards these exams.
With the new 1-9 grading system in place, a grade 5 denotes what is nationally being considered as a 'Strong Pass'.
I would therefore like to offer a special Congratulations to the following Year 11 students who achieved a Grade 5 or above in all of their Mock Exams.
We would like to share some important information regarding the support offered to Year 11 students as well as an outline of the revision and preparation for each subject; designed to maximise individual success.
