Year 11 Study Support

Share on twitter

To support the Year 11 pupils in their studies as they work through this important year we have a number of study support opportunities throughout the week. Pupils will need to prioritise their English, Maths and Science

subjects. Our option subject departments are offering a number of times that pupils can stay back after school or through lunchtime for some extra support and revision. The benefits of these extra sessions will have a positive impact on the final results for your child.  If their subject teacher needs your son/daughter to attend an after school session for support this is to be encouraged.

Please be aware that a number of subjects, especially creative and practical ones, still have compulsory coursework that must be completed in order for your son/daughter to achieve in these subjects. Art, Graphics, Photography, PE, Product Design, Food and Nutrition, Child Development, Business, ICT, Music, Dance, Drama and Media all have these components.  The sessions offered by these departments are vital in providing more time to support the pupils in achieving the highest possible marks for their work.

Our performance subjects such as Drama, Dance and Music use their sessions to offer creative and choreography time to pupils working in groups to have the time to refine their work ready for their final performances and practical exams.

If you or your son/daughter is unsure of which subjects to prioritise or needs support in identifying which sessions to attend please speak to subject teachers at our Y11 parents’ evening on Tuesday 8th October.
