Key Information for Students and Parents

When are the Easter Workshops taking place?

Students will have been handed an individual timetable for their workshop sessions (the full timetable is available to download at the bottom of this page) and the following expectations will be made clear to them:

· Students are not required to wear school uniform when attending workshops

· Students need to wear face coverings as per normal

· Students need to maintain their twice a week testing routine, reporting the outcomes as if it were term time.

You will notice that we have built break and lunchtimes into the plan for the workshops; however, should you NOT want the school to allow your child to leave the site at these times, please inform me by email using the address [email protected]

The members of staff will be covering key content and picking up on key examination skills, ready for the further collection of assessment evidence after the Easter break. 

What is GCSE Pod and how do I use it?

GCSE Pod is the new revision aid for all students that uses exam board targeted videos to help students revise for examinations. It is a great way to cover content and revise understanding. The Presentation attached here covers everything you need to know to get it up and running!

Will the school be offering Saturday morning workshops?

The school is looking to run these later in the year as examinations approach, we will inform parents and students of the dates when this starts

When do the Year 11 subject workshops take place?

We have a workshop rota in place starting from 9th September, however subject teachers will be speaking to students about the content and relevance to their needs, so session may be useful for your son / daughter – others may not. Subject teachers will initially guide this.
