GCSE Support Evening – Information for Parents / Students

We appreciate that not all parents/ carers were able to attend the ‘GCSE Preparing for Exams’ support evening. Feedback from this event was very positive, and so we would like to share with you all some of the materials from this evening to review at your own convenience. You will find below; the PowerPoint presentation delivered by senior leaders, the revision strategies guidance booklet subject information sheets and a GCSE Pod parent flyer and toolkit. Please also note, all revision guides that subject leaders have recommended are available to purchase on Gateway.

We hope that you find this information really useful in supporting your child to prepare for their mock exams which are due to commence Wednesday 1st December in all examined subjects. Please note the French speaking mock exams are scheduled to take place Wednesday 12th January 2022.

Exam timetables will be emailed to all students and parents. Please ensure that your child is familiar with the timetable, including: the day, location and timing of each exam. Excellent attendance during this period is essential. Your child would certainly benefit from taking a structured approach to their revision. Research evidence suggests that early independent revision that is active and sustained, will have a positive impact on academic performance.
