On Thursday 27th November, core subject leaders hosted an invitation event for the parents and carers of Yr 11 students where the focus of the evening was 'A Shared Responsibility'. This was a new addition to the calendar this year and staff were able to use the very positive feedback to plan for a similar event for Yr 10s later in the year.
Success at GCSE is what everyone strives for and, to this end, English, Maths and Science delivered an informative presentation to parents and students in Year 11. Amongst others, the topics addressed included: how to support your teenager through the very stressful exam' period; key dates of mock exams and final exams; healthy lifestyles; revision planning and strategies; responsibility; accountability and exam skills.
At the end of the presentations, students were able to chat to individual subject teachers while browsing through a selection of revision guides for each subject area. All revision guides purchased were subsidised by up to 50%.
