Welcome to Year 11
This year focuses on continuing good progress, recognising achievement and supporting improvement in our students as they work towards their GCSEs and achieve or exceed their potential.
The key tools used to support students in this process are clear communication, academic support and intervention plus effective revision skills. We also introduce the mentoring scheme to some Year 11 students.
I am Head of Year 11 and I have a team of 6 form staff who help look after and support our Year 11 students:
11CB Mrs C Burnett – firstname.lastname@example.org
11JE Dr J Ellis – email@example.com
11CF Mrs C Finch – firstname.lastname@example.org
11TH Mrs T Hayhurst – email@example.com
Your daughter’s from teacher or subject teacher should be your first point of contact when raising an issue.
The students are actively encouraged to balance their school work with sport, music, drama and charity contributions as Year 11 play a key role in the school community and what our school stands for. By participating in these extra activities we hope that the girls can manage their school work effectively and to keep stress at bay as much as we can.
We offer advice with revision strategies and provide opportunities (during and after school) for students to complete homework whilst they are in school. Key staff will be present to offer a smile and help where they can.
Communication in Year 11 between school, student and home is a crucial element of this time in school and we encourage Year 11 to take on a mentor from the school staff/governors plus building on the positive relationships with teaching staff in order to help the students to achieve.
I look forward to working with you and supporting your daughter through Year 11.
