Please see below and attached some important information, which is provided to help you support your child in their preparation for exams this summer.
Block B Assessments
Year 11 will be completing their second set of assessments this year over the two weeks commencing Monday 28 February. Option subjects will complete these assessments in their lessons, and class teachers will advise students in which lesson this will be. The subjects that all students study (English, maths, science and RS) will be sat at allocated times throughout the two week period. The timetable for these is below for your reference.
Please find attached here a link to our revision booklet, which has been written by our staff across all subjects to provide guidance and support on how students may best revise in each of their subjects. We are aware that there is no perfect revision method that works for all students but a range of revision options are highlighted within the booklet.
There are currently lots of revision sessions running in school and more sessions will be added over the coming weeks. Below is a copy of the revision sessions that are available for any student to attend.
Please be aware that after school revision is run voluntarily by staff and therefore these can only be put on at a time when this is convenient for colleagues. We would, however, encourage students to discuss with staff if they were unable to attend revision on a particular day to see whether there may be some flexibility in this. It is likely that sessions will also be offered on Wednesday afternoons in due course.
Advance Exam Information
You may be aware that earlier this week exam boards released advance information on the content of the examinations taking place this summer. This is intended to support year 11 (and year 13) students to mitigate disruption they have encountered as a result of the pandemic over the past two years. In school, we will be considering this information and how we can best use it to support students in their revision and exam preparation. Your child’s teacher will discuss this with them in lessons, but you can also access this information here (For the specific subject information, you should click on the links under ‘Exam boards have published specific information about the changes for each qualification they offer, you should check their websites for more information’).
I hope that you find the information provided in this letter useful.
