Year 10 Exams

As Mr Snape mentioned in his newsletter (28.05.21) there will the opportunity for Year 10 pupils to sit exams in most of their subjects. In line with our Covid risk assessment these exams will take place in classrooms during usual lesson time.

This is always good practice for important assessment in year 11, and the next few weeks will be a good opportunity for the students to learn, develop and practice effective methods of revision, which their teachers will have shown them during lessons.

Currently, the message from the Department for Education is that GCSE exams next summer will be back to normal, so it is important that students get a feel for the GCSE exams and to become familiar with exam rubric and regulations. Once exams are completed by the end of June, students will receive valuable feedback on how they have performed, as well as information on further revision strategies for next year.

To help support pupils’ preparation please find below an exam timetable and a ‘How to revise…’ document for each subject.

Year 11 Enrichment

Here is a reminder of the enrichment opportunities on offer for Year 11 after half term. Students have access to a similar document where they have been signing up. It is important that students do sign up if they want to attend so staff can prepare. All students must also sign in and out of reception.

Saturday Morning History Revision

Well done to those dedicated Year 11 students who have been attending Saturday morning History revision – they’ve made a superb start to their final push (and gained 50 house points too).

There’s two sessions left for anyone else who wants to attend – 10am to 12pm in the LRC on Saturday 23rd and Saturday 30th March. This Saturday’s focus is the History of Medicine.
