Year 11 Information Evening - Slides:

Key slides for parents are available here from the Year 11 Information Evening. Pupils have access to this on the Year 11 Google Classroom.

Google Classroom:

All important information is shared with pupils on their Year 11 Google Classroom. Pupils should check this regularly for information about revision sessions, sixth form applications and other relevant information.  If your child has not signed up to this yet, they can use the code vid5qh to join.

Sixth Form and College:

Pupils should include all of the subjects they are taking on their application forms for sixth form, not just core subjects.

Form Tutors, Ms Brown and Mr Morgan are filing in references for pupils.  Can pupils be aware that they need to give their applications promptly to staff as there are lots of fill in and teachers may need a few days to complete the applications they have received.

Subject Outlines:

A number of subjects have created a document to outline the course content.  These will be updated throughout the year and other subjects will be added.

Prom Committee:

The Prom Committee will meet before the end of this term to create a plan for what activities they will organise in the New Year to raise funds for their prom.

Revision:

Here are some helpful articles regarding revision and some ideas about what parents/carers can do to support your learners.
