Easter GCSE Revision Sessions

Dear Parents/Carers

Re: Easter Revision Sessions

It is not long now until all year 11 and 13 students will be finishing their GCSE and A level courses and sitting their final examinations, and Year 12 students will be sitting their AS level examinations. The exam timetables were issues at the end of February and students should be aware of how many exams they have for each subject and when they are.

Revision is a difficult skill and there will be advice and support in all subjects including guidance on what students should be focusing on and spending their time in preparation for the next few months.

To support the extensive revision programme that is already underway in the college we are offering some additional revision session which focus on specific topics. These revision sessions will be run during the Easter break. The full timetable is identified on the additional page. There is a small deposit of £2.50 to reserve your place on each session – this will be refunded after the session has run and your son/daughter has attended. If your son/daughter wishes to attend any of the sessions please complete the attached sheet and return with the money to the cashier on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning. Reply slips need to be returned by Friday March 24th 2017. Any student who is entitled to Pupil Premium Money and wishes to attend the sessions will not be charged the deposit.

As the additional revision sessions are outside the normal working day it is essential that students arrive promptly and sign in at reception. Good behaviour will be expected throughout, if there is any poor behaviour the student will be asked to leave. Any student who is attending a morning and afternoon session will need to bring their own food and drink. They will not be permitted to leave the site during the lunch break. Please arrange safe travel to and from college on these days.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all students good luck over the next few months, the time and effort that is put in now will make all the difference when the results are in August 2017.

Yours sincerely
