This is the busiest time of year for our Year 11s who are taking advantage of every opportunity to study and make sure of success in their GCSE exams. Classes after school are well attended, as were the Easter School sessions. There will be revision classes over the May half term holiday. Lessons continue as timetabled until the last exam in each subject. GCSEPod (a web based revision site covering all subjects and accessible from phones and other devices) has been made available to all students. If you would like more information regarding revision classes or any of the support available for students, please contact the Head of Year 11, Ms Gill.
We are looking forward to a number of exciting events this term, with our annual Sports Awards Evening at Burton Town Hall in June, work experience for Year 10 in July and students travelling to Italy, France and Ecuador as well as trips to London and Matlock at the end of term. Duke of Edinburgh expeditions are also going well, with students learning a variety of vital life skills through these experiences.
We have a new website under construction and information is being updated to be transferred across to a new, fully integrated school portal with a whole host of new and useful features for parents and pupils to use. In the meantime, if there is anything you need to check, please contact school reception for up to date information.
