GCSE Results Day 


 The Year 11 Parent/Carer Info Evening is on Thursday 6th October 6-7pm at KSA. We are looking forward to seeing you there. Our students are very welcome to attend with you. (Please arrive in good time for a prompt start.)

At this evening parents will hear from us on how parents/carers can support our Year 11s over the eight months leading up to GCSEs including how to support revision at home.  Support at home has a massive impact on doing well in school.  I will also outline key events for the rest of Year 11.

Heads of Department for English, maths and science will give you the key information about their subjects including information on the November exams and what students should focus on.

We'll also hear from Mrs Allan as Head of Year on pastoral matters and Mrs Nicola Redmayne-Addison (SENCO) on wellbeing as we know Year 11 can be stressful for some students.

We have loved working with the Year 11s to date and are regularly impressed with what we see.  Parental support is key in our students doing as well as they can and we know parents often want some advice on how to support.

Many thanks

Mr Reid and Mrs Allan

After the event we will put any handouts on here as a PDF.

Exam timetable for summer GCSE exams coming soon

Students will be invited to attend revision sessions pre all exam series. Knowledge organisers are available to support revision and can be found by click on the subject knowledge organiser tab on the right of this page, where you will be given a list of subjects to access.

Many thanks for the wonderful support for lesson 6 form parents and carers! It makes a big difference to their results. 

These lessons are part of Year 11 students' timetabled day and they are expected to attend.

Please inform school if your child is not able to attend with an explanation to Mrs Allan.
