Year 11 Support
As our year 11 students approach their final examinations in the summer, it is vital that they are fully equipped with all the necessary knowledge and skills. A large part of this success will be down to how effectively they manage their time, and implement an effective revision programme, in the run up to the summer examinations. Learning how to revise effectively is a key part of this.
In order to support our students, we have recruited the help of ‘Learning Performance’, the largest study skills company in the UK. Their highly-skilled staff have an excellent track record of working with students to help them develop these skills and so maximise their potential.
They will be running a workshop at the school on the following date:
- Thursday 9 March 2017
Resources from the evening will be posted here after the event.
Effective study skills
Students will be issued with their own personal revision planner to help them to plan and revise effectively for their examinations. This booklet also outlines important calendar dates and information regarding the summer ball.
