Important Information for Year 11 Parents

Three students sat around laptops talking

Dear Parents/Carers 


After a very positive year 11 parents evening we are pleased to report that year 11 are continuing their hard work and dedication to their studies and remain determined to achieve positive outcomes at the end of the year.

Module 4 is a very important module for Year 11, with mock exams taking place for most subjects.  A personalised mock timetable will be printed for all students and given to them before the end of Module 3. Independent revision is now key to the continued development of students and we encourage all to continue up to and throughout these assessments. Mock examinations will take place from February 19 until March 1. 

To support parents further key information for Year 11 parents can be found on the Academy website using the following  link. This includes the Module 4 after school revision schedule, dates and times of mock examinations and information regarding the Reach for the stars reward programme. 

Half Term Revision 

To support students in the completion of coursework elements and to support mock preparations, the school has invested in staff to provide some additional intervention sessions for targeted students during the February  half term, shown below. These will be added to the MCAS app much like revision sessions during Module 3.

Mock Examinations

The next mock series will run from 19 February to 1 March 2024. Your child will receive a paper copy of their exam timetable and a digital copy will be available on MCAS.

Please remind your child that they must bring the appropriate equipment to all of their timetabled exams as well as remembering that they are not allowed to have anything on their person, this includes mobile phones, watches and anything in their pockets during their exams.

It is essential that your child arrives in school by 8.25 am if they have a morning exam. Students sitting afternoon exams will be on first lunch, exams will proceed to start at 1.15 pm (1 pm on Wednesdays). It is incredibly important that students are not late to their exams, however if you are running late, please call your child’s college to notify us of the reason for their lateness. 

On the following dates, if your child does any of the following papers, the finish time will overrun the end of the school day:
