On Monday, we held a Mock GCSE Results Day for Year 11, where students received an envelope containing their results from their December Mock exams.
Congratulations to all students who achieved their target grade in any of their subjects – a great position to be in at this stage and we have even raised some targets as a result. The overall picture looks positive although, as ever, there is a lot to play for over the next few months.
All students should be attending any revision sessions that are on offer to them. Some of these are targeted at certain students; others are ‘open invite’ or ‘drop-in’ – these will go onto the school website in the ‘Parent Communication’ section in a couple of weeks’ time.
Students should also have created their own revision timetable by now (a template will be on the parent communication pages) and scheduled what revision they are going to do on each day, along with any other commitments they may have.
Whilst it’s important that students continue with sport and social activities to maintain a balance, for many students these should be tailing off now as we begin the run in to exams.
As a general recommendation, students should be completing around two hours of homework/revision per night, with slightly more at the weekend.
If you have any concerns about your child’s progress please contact your child’s subject teacher; for any general concerns please contact
