Continuing Support for Year 11 – Through the Holiday & Beyond
30th May 2016

With the exception of GCSE Russian on the 23rd June, all other GCSE examinations will be completed by the end of the day on Friday 17th June. This means that in just 18 days from this post (10 school days, 2 school weeks) most Year 11 students will be done and can start what will potentially be the longest summer holiday that they will ever get!

We are extremely pleased and proud of the way that our Year 11 cohort have been approaching their examinations up to the half-term break, making use of the support available to them through continuing to attend lessons, extra “Booster Sessions”, the “Study Café” and “Saturday School”. In order to help maintain the focus over the next 18 days the following information shows the many ways that we will continue to support our Year 11 students to do the best that they can…
