A Levels mocks in all A Level subjects take place between Thursday 4th and Tuesday 16th January 2018. I have provided all Year 13 students with a copy of the mock exam timetable and there is also a copy below. I will also provide advice to all Year 13 students regarding revision and how devise a revision timetable. It would be very helpful if you were able to discuss this at home.
We had an action packed day with Year 11 last week.. Taster Day saw 167 students sample an extensive range of our A Level and BTEC lessons. Year 11s taking part were challenged and engaged in a variety of different ways with classes conducted and led by experienced Sixth Form specialist teachers.. We welcomed a large number of external students and hope they all enjoyed the experience.
Here in the Sixth Form we feel it is vital to not just allow our students the possibility of leaving after 2 years with good A Level results, but we want to provide them with pastoral information to help support their lives.
We use our tutor times and assemblies to be able to deliver a lot of this. Since September we have had a long list of outside agencies who have been kind enough to visit and talk to our Year 12 and 13 students in our Tuesday morning assembly slot.
