Examination support for students and parents

As part of our examination support programme for Year 11 we have two forthcoming initiatives I would like to make you aware of.  We have invested in a company called Elevate who come highly recommended in preparing students for examinations, providing ideas and strategies for revision.  We have also requested they run a session for parents advising how you can help your child during this stressful time.

For students: Students will have a 2 hour presentation on revision skills and examination preparation by a company called Elevate on Tuesday 17 March.

For parents: 17 March 7.00 pm in the School Hall

We recognise the vital partnership in examination success therefore we have organised for Elevate to advise you on how you can help your son/daughter in the run-up to examinations.  We all know how stressful this can be, for the whole family, and we want to ensure you feel well prepared to help you child.  In addition, there will be a short talk on the examinations by the Heads of Department of the core subjects: English, Mathematics, Science and Modern Foreign Languages.

I firmly believe many parents will find this one of the most informative evenings and I would urge all parents of Year 11 students to attend.

I look forward to seeing you on the evening

Mr K Douglas, Headteacher
