On 24th August 2023, your children will receive their GCSE results.
Now is the time to begin with the end in mind. The level of work that our students are doing and the level of commitment they are showing now will have a big impact on what they achieve in the end.
The information on this page aims to help you and your child maximise the remaining weeks and months to help them achieve their full potential and give them the widest range of choices for the future.
We continue to escalate our efforts to provide meaningful enhancements to learning for our students. Earlier in the Autumn term, our year 11 students took part in study skills workshops to help them hone their revision skills and we also offered an excellent online seminar for parents and carers about how to best support your child with their revision.
Shortly before the year 11 parents evening on 3rd November 2022, we have shared with you our GCSE Revision and Support Guide. This support guide is still available for viewing and is full of useful information.
To use all the live links, please download a PDF copy of this booklet. You can do so via the PDF button on the top right corner of the flipbook web page.
Please take the time to read it carefully together with your child and we look forward to seeing you at our virtual parents’ evening.
Our dedicated staff continue to offer GCSE Period Six revision classes at different times of the day. For a copy of the revision timetable please click here.
After thoroughly analysing your child’s mock exam papers, our heads of department and subject coordinators have provided you with practical advice on the next steps for improvement. You can easily access this advice along with individual changes to the GCSE exams by following each departmental link on the college map below.
On Wednesday 18th January 2023, we have hosted our annual Year 11 GCSE Revision and Support evening. During this event key staff have provided the most up to date information about the Year 11 learning journey, lessons learned from the Autumn mock exam series, and have shared tips and advice on how to effectively support your child with their GCSE preparation at home.
We would like to thank everyone who attended the event, and all parents and carers for their ongoing support in ensuring their child fully understands the importance of the coming months and applies their full attention to examination preparation both in college and at home. Please see below a summary of the PowerPoint presentation used for the evening.
