We are approaching the time of year when our pupils are taking their Mock Examinations.  Year 11 pupils will take mock examnations in all of their GCSE subjects and Y10 pupils will have mock examinations for English Literature in preparation for sitting in their GCSEs during the summer.

Pupils should have begun their revision by now and, if they have not done so already, need to create their revision timetable. All Year 11 pupils have participated in revision workshops to support them in their preparation; 99% of pupils said that they would be using the techniques learnt themselves. Parents are requested to discuss the importance of thorough revision and examination preparation with their daughter.

One important tool that provides help and support with examination preparation is GCSE Pod, which is an excellent resource for revision and consolidation of learning. Many subjects in school also use this as part of the homework being set. Usage of GCSE Pod is linked to improved pupil progress in GCSEs; please encourage your daughter to use GCSE Pod on a regular basis to support her learning.
