Year 11 Ahead Evening

We are in this together. The home-school partnership is crucial if we are going to help students achieve their personal best. Please feel free to contact subject staff if you have any concerns.

There is a powerful association between

parental involvement

and student achievement and attainmentParental involvement in the form of at-home interest and support is a major influence upon educational outcomesDepartment of Education Research

Revision Guides/Planners and Easter Revision

We will be holding after school sessions starting after half term on Thursday evenings to help students organise their own revision

all students revise for a minimum of 30 hours over the Easter Holidays

The Students

Something to look forward to at the end of the school year. We have booked Bury Lodge in Stansted for the Year 11 Prom and will be arranging buses to transport the students from school to the venue. More details to follow

in a letter coming out on Monday (parent mail and to all students’ school mail),

but please put the date on your calendar.

The basic point is you should be on target. You will be shown your residual after each progress check and report

It effectively means you can be 1 grade below your target in half your subjects

Slide12

Why think about post -16 progression now?

It’s important to have plans for post 16 progression.

The plans will depend on forecast GCSE grades.

This is the same wherever students apply, here or elsewhere.

If students apply here (and we hope they will) they have the following options:

Slide13

10 A*- B or more:

4 A level subjects of their choice.

5 A*- B:

4 A level subjects- limited

choice 5 Cs: more limited choice of subjects- fewer subjectsSome courses have particular entry requirements e.g. 7 in maths to do Physicsfewer than 5Cs:

level 2 qualifications (GCSEs)

Not achieving 4s in Maths and English language

The better the GCSE performance, the more options students have!

Slide15

Changes to post 16 Education

Linear A levels starting September 2017

in all subjects.

Some subjects will have more demanding content and assessment, be aware of this when making choices.

Maths and English grades 1-9 this affects the entry requirements for some subjects as well as resits (see prospectus)

What can you do in the meantime?

Consider strengths- e.g. course-work versus exam performance, essays versus short answer. How does this match to particular

courses.

Investigate courses, content and assessment: the prospectus and parental handbook are on the web site.

Slide22

Maths has and will always been seen as important.

It is not only a qualification for courses in September 2017 but it will continue to be on application forms/interviews for most people’s careers.

A sticky grade

Slide23

Maths GCSE

is now so important it

is

even

more crucial to achieve a top gradeBelow a 4 means further study and retake(s) Retakes are even harder work and therefore takes time and energy away from chosen subjects

Don’t “settle” for a grade now and regret it later

Attaining the right grade

Slide24

Most sixth form centres required an A at GCSE level to study maths at A level. This will be a grade 7.

Students need to show

this term

they look like they will achieve that 7 for their applications

Attaining

the

right

grade
