We are committed to ensuring that our students achieve their very best and so would like to share tips and tricks to exams and relaxation through, what can be, a very stressful time.  Please click on the links below:-

In addition to their chosen subjects, all learners will have the opportunity to attend sessions throughout the Easter holidays. The purpose of these sessions is to help learners with their independent revision.  A timetable of classes will be available in the coming weeks.  Further, tailored support is also going to be offered to all students according to their personal needs following the mocks results in January.
Parental meetings may also be requested if pupils require further, more bespoke support.

Bespoke sessions of revision will also be on offer in the coming weeks – please check here for updated details

Please join us at our year 11 parent event on the 6th February where we will be happy to provide you with lots of advice and guidance on how to support your child.  The Year 11 team will be happy to help with any queries you may have.
