Y11 parents' and carers' evening
The Y11 Parents’ and Carers’ Evening is calendared for Thursday 5th January 2023, 3.30pm - 7.00pm.
This is a face to face event which will be held in classrooms in the school building.
The evening will consist of 5 minute appointments with subject teachers to give parents and carers the opportunity to discuss progress following the most recent mock exams. Students’ exercise books will be available (for subjects where work is completed in books) outside of classrooms for parents and carers to look at with their child just prior to each appointment.
Please note that 5 minutes travel time has been built into the system between appointments to give everyone time to move to the next classroom without running late.
We are very much looking forward to a return to face-to-face parents’ evenings, but we are also conscious that many families liked the very precise timings of video calls which prevented appointments running over and queues developing.
On the evening teachers will adhere to the five minutes allocated for appointments and will display clocks in the rooms to support with this. Logistically this is really important if we are to prevent large queues developing and appointments running late. We hope that you will support us on the evening with this system which is in the interests of giving all parents and carers the opportunity of conversations without undue waiting times.
On arrival at reception parents and carers will be given a rooming list and map so that appointments can be easily located.
Appointment booking is now open via the usual Parents Evening portal which can be accessed from the Remote Login page of the school website. Please contact reception in the first instance if you have any difficulty in booking appointments. Appointment booking will close at midday on Wednesday 4th January. We anticipate that the evening will be very popular so would advise booking appointments early.
Making the most of revision time
The two documents linked to this page, Topic Lists and Revision Strategies provide information on both what to revise and how to do it successfully. In the recent student voice survey, Y11 asked for topic lists and these have been provided by all subject areas along with their recommended revision strategies. The 'Revision Strategies' document details revision techniques that really work and you should read this booklet carefully so that you make the most of the time that you spend revising.
