Year 11 Getting Exam Ready

Year 11 Getting Exam Ready - Getting Exam Ready

Students will continue to finish their course in each subject before working through planned revision exercises. They will then be granted study leave from Friday 28 April. After this date, they will be expected to follow their own revision schedules and may attend school for any pre-planned subject-specific sessions or to study in the Learning Resource Centre.

It is imperative that both parents and students are clear on the timings and dates for each exam to avoid any added stress on the day. Students have been provided with their own personal exam timetable with the dates and venue of each of their examinations. We strongly encourage you to sit down and talk through the timetable together and plan a sensible revision schedule with suitable breaks and take into consideration a healthy exercise regime, ECAs and family events.

We must not forget that whilst we want to provide our children with the opportunity to grow and become more independent, they still require guidance and support from both parents/guardians and teachers along this journey. Therefore, we can support them by checking they are fully equipped for each exam using the equipment list in our presentation, are following their revision timetables and that they have a sensible work-life balance which involves time to relax, good sleep patterns, opportunities to exercise, a healthy balanced diet and are not spending excessive time on devices.

The partnership between home and school in supporting our students is very important. We encourage you to start conversations with your children about what they have been doing at school to prepare for exams, celebrate their successes to boost confidence and identify areas where you can also support them at home.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Form Tutor or Head of Year if you have any questions at all.

We wish all of our Year 11s the best of luck!

Assistant Head (Academic)
