Notwithstanding potential changes due the government’s response to the coronavirus, the Y11 revision programme moves into new phase next week as we head towards the all-important Summer exams.

Firstly, there will be a series of focused assemblies covering revision, exam preparation, stress-busting, etc.

Secondly, each Year 11 tutor group will get a new tutor room which will have computers in them so that students can access online revision, coursework, assignments, etc, in the final push.

Thirdly, all students will receive a revision booklet, a revision planner and guidance on revision sessions scheduled for the weeks ahead. They will become a key component of tutor time.

Fourthly, teachers will be circulating revision resources, as well as a wide range of online resources, to students so that they can work with the materials that best suit their own revision approach.

Sam Sullivan, Assistant Headteacher, said: “If students have any questions, then they should not hesitate to ask their teachers. There is a wealth of material available to keep students busy and it is essential that they are using their time productively. It has been fantastic to see so many students involved in booster classes, Saturday School sessions, etc, and the current plan will see these build-up and probably intensify in the run-up to the exams.”

Matt Allman, Headteacher, added: “The current coronavirus situation means that it is likely students and teachers will be relying on parents more than ever to remain focused on their studies for their final exams. Teachers will continue to do all they can – whether face-to-face or online – but parents are always vital and it looks like this year they will be more critical in their support than ever.”
