Information regarding setting in Y7 subjects

Maths have already been placed in their sets.  You should have received a letter regarding this, any questions please refer to the contact details on this letter.

PE  will not be set in Y7.  Students will be put into sets in Y8 of one high ability group and 2 mixed ability groups.

As you are aware, Year 7 have been studying Great Expectations in English over the first half term and they are going to continue to study this text over the next half term too – this time, with a focus on writing skills.

At the beginning of next half term, we are going to make some changes to the Year 7 classes so that they are more streamlined. The adjustments will be made within the current bands which the classes are taught in – in some cases, this is between two classes and in others, it is between 3 classes. The streamlining will ensure that the classes work within the bands and so that the teachers can target their teaching to meet the needs of the group – therefore it will be beneficial for all students in Year 7.

All classes will be studying the same text and the same lessons and similarly, the written tasks and the assessments will be identical.

Thank you for your continued support.
