Year 11 Revision Programme

With the GCSE exams drawing closer, and the mock exams approaching at the end of January, we trust that your son/daughter will soon be beginning their programme of revision.

To support our Year 11 students, we will begin an after-school programme straight after half term from Monday 2 November.

This programme will have two phases:

For the first 4 weeks, from Monday 2 November until Friday 27 November, there is a focus on subjects in which students need to plan a performance, build a portfolio, prepare for a Non-Examined Assessment (NEA) or focus on an extended piece of work.  The programme will be the same for Week A and B, and the sessions will be from 2.50pm onwards (2.20pm on Fridays).  Teacher will let students know if they need to attend, and the room to attend.  The designated evenings are:

Monday – Art, Photography, Sports Studies

Tuesday –Textiles, RM, Graphics

Wednesday – Health and Social, Music Tech/Music, Catering

Thursday – None (avoiding Subject Evenings)

Friday – Enterprise, iMedia, Dance, Drama

For the next 6 weeks, from Monday 30 November until Friday 22 January (three weeks either side of the Christmas break), revision will run for all subjects with a focus on preparation for mock exams beginning at the end of January.  This is open to all students.  Teachers will let students know where to attend.

The designated evenings are:

Most of these sessions will be face to face, however, some departments will also test some remote video revision sessions.  Details of these will be given directly to students by their teachers.

I will write again before Christmas to outline arrangements for the mock exams at the end of January, and to provide further details of the support we have arranged for Year 11 for after mocks in the run up to the summer exams.

Please do come back to me with any questions.

Yours faithfully
