All Year 11 students will be required to attend school as normal up until May half-term. The only exception to this is if they have a GCSE examination or an agreed curriculum revision session (we will publish these details nearer the time). If the exam is AM, students must attend lessons the rest of the day. If the exam is PM, they must attend a normal school day, but are released from lessons slightly early to get lunch and prep for their exam. This is so that they can receive every available lesson before their exam and also access any last minute revision sessions on the day of the exam.
After May half-term, students will only attend if they have a GCSE examination or if any subject teacher requests that they come into school for a lesson/revision session. There will also be planned last minute revision sessions on the day of the exam – some of these will be for identified students, some for all students. Students know this already from a recent assembly.
Any queries, please contact Mr Heaton, Director of Learning Year 11.
