Head Teacher’s Message
I have spent the last week interviewing Year 9 and 10 students about their grades and it was a privilege to spend time with all of them. Many of them do not understand that their target grades are based on a national analysis of English and Maths Key Stage 2 results. The targets are challenging because we choose to say that all pupils should aim to achieve the best grades possible for their ability level. As exams become more difficult it will be important for all students to read through and practise school examinations regularly.
As we approach Advent and a time of preparation for Christmas festivities please help your child to recognise the importance of good preparation. Years 11, 12 and 13 will be taking exams in January. Now is the time to start preparing. Year 11 are invited to our Post 16 Options Evening on Thursday 27th November, which should help students to recognise how important GCSE examinations are and how vital practice in January will be in helping them to make choices.
