What has year 11 got in store for you?

Year 11 is one of the most exciting, challenging and important times in your child’s education. It continues the formal journey to achieving GCSE and/or BTEC qualifications.

Although the final Year 11 GCSE exams may seem a long way away, your child will completing coursework and controlled assessments (course work completed in school under exam conditions), all of which count towards their final GCSE grades.

The vision of the Year 11 team is to develop all students to aspire to be their best with the knowledge that they have the full support of the year team and their parents.

In order to achieve, students must value learning. Year 11 students will show that they value learning through the choices they make. Students will show that they value learning through outstanding attendance and punctuality, through behaviour which allows for learning to take place and through the completion of work in class, as well as homework, to the best of their ability. The year team will reward students for making excellent choices and will have support systems in place for those that are finding the correct decisions difficult to make. Parents will be expected to encourage students to make the right decisions and to support the year team when the wrong choices have been made.

Students must also take ownership of their learning. They need to make effective use of their diaries to record homework and to self-monitor their attendance and punctuality. Parents and tutors must support this endeavour by checking the diary regularly especially both the homework logs, detention page, and using it as a communication tool which links the efforts of home and school.

After school and during the school holidays students will be invited and given the opportunity to attend revision classes leading up to their GCSE examinations which is a positive and valuable experience for the students.It is expected that pupils in Year 11 do between 2 and 2.5 hours of homework each evening and record each piece of homework given in their own planner. It would be helpful if parents regularly checked pupils' planners and pass on any concerns to the Head of Year or relevant Head of Department

We will continue to push our students to make outstanding progress and urge our Year 11 students to continue to aim high and achieve their full potential.
