Year 11 Steps to Success Evening - Thursday 6 October 2022, 5pm– 7.30pm

With only 4 weeks to Y11 Mock Exams and only 105 teaching days until Y11 sit their GCSE exams, our Steps to Success Evening is a great opportunity to gain extra insight into the courses and the various demands these will place on your son/daughter.

There will also be an opportunity to explore what courses we offer in the Sixth Form as well as those available through some of our local colleges.

The evening will begin in the Auditorium with an outline of what we offer at school in preparation for both the mocks and the summer exams. There will be a presentation from core subjects discussing how to revise and which resources will best support with this. There will be two talks, one at 5pm and one at 6pm. Please click here to book a place.

Parents and pupils will then have the opportunity to visit other subject areas in the gym, to discuss revision resources and additional support available this year.

To further support pupils, we will also offer Post-16 guidance and information. Staff delivering BTEC and A Levels will be on hand in the Sixth Form Centre to discuss the courses that we offer in Y12 and 13. Moulton College and Northampton College will also be present to discuss the courses on offer at their setting.

  • Learning from last year’s Year 11 students – what would they do differently? 
  • Intervention and revision sessions
  • Supporting your child’s revision and GCSE preparation 
  • Mock exams calendar
