Examinations and Revision

We know that taking examinations can be a stressful time for students and their families and our aim is to work with families to make each year rewarding and successful for our students.

In our Year 11 Revision Planner you will find key information about dates, pre public examinations and the practicalities of academy life; information about making revision productive; and the support in place for your child.

Working together, we can ensure that our students achieve excellence.  If at any point in the year you have concerns or queries, please use the contact list in this booklet to get in touch with the member of staff who can help.  The sooner we know about a potential issue, the sooner we can work with you to sort it, so please do keep in touch with us about any concern, no matter how small.

We wish you and your child a successful year and look forward to celebrating the end of their time with us at the Leavers Assembly, their prom and their GCSE results on results day.
