Year 11 Maximise Event

This is an important year for all of our Year 11 students as the GCSE Examinations are fast approaching. We are holding the Maximise Event to ensure all of our Year 11s have the best chance of being successful in their exams next year.

Part of the journey to being successful next year is preparing for examinations.  All students in Year 11 will be completing Year 11 College Application Examinations in all subjects from Monday 8th November to Thursday 2nd December 2021.  Please see a copy of the timetable which you can find published on the Academy website.  When students are not in an examination, they will attend lessons as normal.

The Maximise Event will start with a presentation on revision techniques/strategies, how you as parents/carers can best support your child in completing revision at home, the Year 11 College Application Examinations, our expectations of your child’s attendance and conduct during the examination period and an update on Summer 2022 Examinations. 

After the presentation all students will receive:

  • Free revision guides and/or workbooks for each of their subjects
  • Details on the best way to revise for examinations
  • Subject to-do lists in preparation for their college application mock exams
  • A copy of the College Application Examination schedule

There will also be an opportunity during the evening to talk to staff and enjoy a curry and refreshments, free of charge.

We cannot stress enough the importance of these examinations in that the results will be used for students’ sixth form, college or any other post 16-provider applications.  Whilst we hope and expect that all examinations will be able to take place next year the government have contingency plans in place.  If examinations are cancelled, then grades will be determined through teacher assessment.  The College Application Examinations will be a key part of any teacher assessed grade as they provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding across the full range of content they have been taught.  It is therefore vitally important that students take these examinations seriously, attend school and participate in ALL scheduled examinations.
