Y11 half term revision & attendance

Dear Y11 Parents

We are writing to confirm the arrangements for compulsory school attendance after half term.  

This year, due to the increased demands of the GCSEs, we will be continuing to teach Year 11 students up to 13th June.  Where students have already taken their GCSEs in a particular subject, students should continue to attend the lesson where silent study will be supervised.

On Tuesday 13th June there will be a Year 11 assembly during period 5 after their Maths exam.   Students should bring in a spare shirt for signing but must wear a clean white shirt during the school day and obviously in their examination.

Please note that if students do not attend school during this time their place on the boat trip will be forfeited and no refund will be given.

The following revision sessions will also be held during and after half term (Please note the date of the Saturday session).  We strongly advise students to embrace the extra revision opportunities the staff are offering.

After the 13th June students should sign in/out by student services and full school uniform must be worn when in school. 

All student will be given a ‘green exit form’ which must be signed by their teachers prior to the prom.  All books and locker keys must be handed in to the appropriate departments.

Finally we would like to stress the importance of revision right up to the last exam.  We would encourage parents to seriously curtail the amount of time that students are allowed out in the evenings so that they are revising thoroughly each night and getting lots of sleep.   

There has been much evidence about the damage that prolonged ‘screen time’ can have on students and as they may well be needing to revise using online activities we suggest that all gaming devices should be removed until after the examinations end.

We have high hopes for all our students and wish them all the very best of luck.

Yours faithfully

The Senior Leadership Team
