Extra revision sessions out of hours

Extra revision sessions out of hours

Over 100 Year 11 students have been putting in extra time, out of hours, to attend revision sessions run by teachers over the past five to six weeks, including during the Easter break and May half-term holiday.

The sessions included English, Maths, and Science, and exam booster classes in every subject across the curriculum.  Vice Principal Greg Godwin, said, “We believe this added commitment from students is great preparation for the next step in their education.  It’s an important part of their development as adults, learning to take responsibility for their own learning.”

Head of Year 11 and Post 16 Kelly Williams added, “One of the reasons we are getting good grades is that students are committed to the extra provision staff provide.  Students go above and beyond to achieve great results and so do the staff.”

“The sessions are not compulsory because they are in holiday time, and the level of attendance from staff and students shows how committed they are to improve their chances of achieving higher grades.”

“We believe that having so many students attending these revision sessions will help to boost results in the summer, allowing students to be successful in their applications to the Sixth Form, colleges and apprenticeships.”
