Y11 Half-term Revision Sessions
With mock exams and GCSEs approaching, the Academy is putting on a Holiday School during February half-term to support Year 11 students with their preparation. This is a chance for students to access a range of additional study opportunities targeting revision, controlled assessment work and exam technique. We hope to see all Year 11 students attending the extra learning sessions which have been put in place for them. This is a wonderful opportunity to help them maximise their potential.

To support our vision of educating excellence and to ensure that all our students achieve their absolute best in public examinations at KS4 and beyond, we are committed to ensuring that all our students are as well prepared as they can be for assessments.
Public examinations, whether for GCSE, A Level or BTEC qualifications, can be very stressful, and we know that practice, rather than avoidance, is the key to success.

During Year 10 and 11, students will undertake controlled assessments and mock exams throughout the school year. External exams are timetabled on dates set by the exam boards and cannot be changed. Students cannot arrange to sit exams on different days. For this reason, we stress that holidays/trips must not be booked during term time and any requests for such absences will not be authorised.
The following websites contain advice on how to cope with the stress of exams and offer help in planning revision.
