Key Stage 4

Year 11 Parents Focus Event: November 2021

 

It is unfortunate that due to Covid restrictions, we are unable to hold the Year 11 Parents Focus Evening in the Hall on Thursday 4th November, as was intended. The information due to be presented during the evening is important in helping parents to support their child over the coming months as Year 11 students prepare for their public examinations.  We are therefore pleased to invite you to access this information here.

You will find available 5 short video presentations which include a general presentation outlining the key events, strategies and resources we have in place to help support students in their ongoing preparation for examinations and 4 brief presentations from Subject Leaders who deliver pertinent information, advice and guidance related to revision/independent study in the core subjects and in History, an option subject studied by over half of the year group.  There is also an associated document providing useful details related to examinations in each of the various subjects which we hope will help you assist your child in their preparations.  We advise that parents, ideally along with students, access these resources as soon as possible ahead of the trial examinations which, in the main, begin on 25th November.

Please do not hesitate to contact the relevant member of staff, as identified in the online resources, should you need any further information.
