We are now into the GCSE examination season and Year 11 students will be leaving us soon.  Obviously, we want to make sure that our students have the best possible chance of success in their GCSEs; therefore a properly structured revision period is necessary. 

 

Students have already had lots of advice on how to revise, including revision timetables and revision techniques.  Also, there have been many revision sessions during the morning, after school and even at the weekend!  These sessions will continue.  Year 11 students will finish their normal school timetable on Friday, 7th June, for Study Period.  During this final ‘normal’ week, Monday, 3rd – Friday, 7th June, students will be allowed to wear their leavers’ hoodies, as per tradition, in place of their blazer.  All other school uniform must be worn as normal, no excuses!

 

During the study period students will, of course, be expected to attend for examinations but also for the lessons in which they still have examinations to sit. Please see the attached grid for details.  A room will be available for independent study for each lesson of the school day.  Alternatively, students can go home and come back to school but must sign in and out each time.  From Monday, 10th June all Year 11 students must sign in and out at reception; this is to comply with fire safety regulations.  This will not apply during an examination as a register is taken in the hallStudents must be in full school uniform for all lessons/revisions sessions, examinations and the Leavers’ Assembly (with no exceptions or excuses). 

 

Obviously, as time progresses and examinations are taken, students will be required for less and less lessons until eventually they have completed all their examinations.  Subject teachers may make arrangements for additional revision sessions and will contact home as appropriate.   The grid below details when students are required for lessons.

Study Period Timetable

 

If students do not have an exam or a lesson they can study at home or in the allocated study area within school. Full school uniform must be worn at all times (leavers’ hoodies are allowed instead of a blazer).
