Year 11 Information for Parents
Studying for the GCSE examinations is arguably the most important year in students’ school careers and the skill of revising effectively is developed over a child's time in secondary school. One of the purposes of internal examinations is for students to explore different strategies to revise and hone their technique.
Revision materials supplied by departments will often be uploaded electronically for students to access and each student has his/her own log-in.
Year 11s often sit three series of mock exams pre and post-Christmas and their results are distributed during a Mock Results afternoon. In addition, students will attend walking/talking mocks for all subjects to facilitate greater understanding of exam papers.
In preparation for the Summer public examinations, students are issued with an amended study timetable in the final weeks to ensure time is used to its maximum effect to support students.
