GCSE Information Evening Year 11

GCSE Information Evening Year 11

Every year in the autumn term we hold an information evening for Year 11 and their parents.

The evening is a series of talks and information sessions on how to revise and how parents and carers can support their daughter through their GCSE examinations.

With COVID-19 restrictions it is not possible to host an evening in school so we have prepared a series of short presentations for parents and pupils to watch at home.

We are also providing parents and carers and year 11 pupils with two guidebooks. These will be sent home during November.

We hope that the guidebooks and the presentations are useful over the coming year in providing support to parents and carers and their daughters.
