It was a privilege to welcome over 80% of Year 11 parents to the recent Year 11 Partnership evening. In the evening we took the opportunity to explain what parents and students could expect this year. The new GCSE grading system was explained as were the changes to controlled assessment. The Head of English, maths and science shared specific tips and strategies for students to prepare for the exams at the end of the year. A set of notes from the evening are attached with this news item. If you have any queries please don't hesitate to contact our Head of Key Stage 4 Mr Mist (firstname.lastname@example.org).
