    Year 11 Revision Materials

    Dear Parents of Year 11,

    Please find a table below which lists each subjects exam board and the revision materials they recommend for their students.  It is recommended that students who haven't purchased these, do so as a matter of urgency (or as a Christmas present).

    With exams straight after Christmas and then in March and June, Year 11 students have had one key assembly on how to organise their time and revise and have been given timetables to support this.  On December 10th we will be running a Year 11 revision masterclass throughout the morning which is compulsory for all Year 11 students to attend.  A team of 16 teachers, skilled in revision techniques, are going to deliver 8 key sessions on how Year 11 students can revise efficiently and effectively. 

    Please encourage your son/daughter to use these techniques straight after so that they immediately practice using the best of them.  Asking to see a weekly plan of revision based on the mock timetable they have been given (and emailed) also highlights whether they need your help to do this.  We are more than happy to help too if you are concerned that your son/daughter is struggling with their organisation so please contact us if this is the case.

    Best wishes
    Mr Sinfield
