Drop-in Sessions Schedule

Year 11 Subject Support

A large number of departments offer lunchtime revision or help sessions to Year 11 students. At this time of year, with mock examinations not far away, many students are making much more extensive use of this provision than they have done earlier in the year. Students are balancing their preparation across 11 subject areas and we know that support from parents/carers in prioritising their son/daughter’s study time can be crucial at this time of year. Heads of Learning have put together the information below so that you are aware of when these lunchtime or afterschool sessions take place in each subject. Hopefully this will help you to encourage your son/daughter to make the most of the opportunity to ask questions, revise or receive support with classwork and homework. Many of these sessions are held in an informal manner, students attend in friendship groups and are able to relax and combine study support with a break from formal lessons. Students can drop in and get help with a specific question for a few minutes, or they can stay for the whole session.

Additional sessions for Graphics, History, Music, Sciences and Technology run from January onwards. These will be advertised via the Year 11 website and also in school. Students are advised to confirm with their subject teacher if they plan to attend support sessions afterschool as these may be affected by whole school events such as parents’ evenings.

If you have any questions about your son/daughter’s preparation for their GCSE examinations please do not hesitate to contact the relevant Head of Learning, Mrs Buckley, Miss Renold or Mrs George and we would be pleased to assist.
