As you are aware year 11 are entering the final year of their GCSE examinations which take place in the summer term 2019. In previous years, we have attributed the individual success of our pupils to the extensive intervention programme we put in place and the support that we receive from our parents and carers.
In order to continue this success and ensure that year 11 achieve the best possible outcomes, all year 11 pupils will be expected to attend intervention sessions from 2:35pm until 3.35pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday each week. This term will focus on Maths, English and Science. On Thursday and Friday they will finish the school day at 2:35pm. Attendance is compulsory and a valid reason will need to be provided for any absence from intervention.
The intervention sessions are designed to ensure that students complete their revision to the highest possible standard and learn the exam techniques required in order to successfully prepare for the exams. Each week pupils will be directed to revision sessions that will best fulfil their individual needs.
We look forward to working together in order to achieve success in the formal examinations. May I take this opportunity to remind you that Year 11 Parent’s Evening which will take place on Monday 15th October 3:30pm – 5:30pm. Class teachers will be available to discuss pupil’s current attainment and the steps required to move forward. If you wish to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Gee (Head of Year 11) or Mrs Warhurst (Deputy Head) who are working closely with Year 11.
