GCSE Holiday Revision Schedule

Dear Families,

As we approach the end of this half term, I wanted to write to you with a couple of key updates that are relevant to our Year 11 students.

Friday 26th May 2023 – Independent Study Day

As you will, no doubt, be aware, our Year 11 students have been working exceptionally hard over the past two weeks. We have seen a real focus in the exam hall as students strive to achieve their best, whilst the morning and afternoon booster sessions have seen students regroup and refocus ahead of whatever exam lays before them.

With this in mind, we are offering our Year 11 students the opportunity to work from home on Friday 26th May. If students wish to come into school, they are more than welcome and they will follow their normal timetable and have lessons with their normal teachers.


There have been a few of occasions over the past two weeks where students have tried to enter the exam hall with incorrect uniform. Students are expected to wear full school uniform, including blazer and black footwear. Open-toed shoes (including Crocs) are not permitted.

If a student is missing a particular item, they have been advised to speak to Mrs Monahan for assistance.

May Half-Term Booster Sessions

There are a number of booster sessions planned for our Year 11 students during the half-term break. These are open to all students and a full timetable can be found on the reverse of this letter and on the school website.

I hope you and your families have an enjoyable and restful break, and that our Year 11 students return refreshed and ready for the last few weeks of their exams.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. C. Tyrie

Assistant Principal KS4
