Year 11 Pre-Public Exams

Monday marks the start of the first wave of pre-public exams for Year 11. It will be a busy fortnight for students and it is important that you all ensure that you make the most of the opportunities that these exams can give. The exams will give your teachers a really good indication of what your strengths are as well as what we need to focus on over the next few weeks and months as we approach the real GCSE exams. All of your exams should be taken seriously and you should really aim to show your teachers just how good you are.

It is important to remember the following:
Arrive on time to your exams. If you have a morning exam you must first go to tutor and then to the Hall, we would like prompt starts to all exams taking place.

It is essential that you are fully equipped this includes: A number of black pens and pencils, ruler, protractor, compass, rubber, highlighter, calculator, coloured pencils if required by your subject. All in a clear pencil case.

All exams will take place in the Hall unless stated otherwise and all information for each exam will be posted outside of the Hall every morning and afternoon. Please check the boards carefully.

Year 11 you have all been working incredibly hard towards these pre-public exams. We have been continually impressed by the work ethic and approach which you have shown this year so far. Now is the time to put all of that effort into excellent use and really showcase the talent that we as a year group have to offer.

Also, please remember that the Year 11 team are here to help, if you have any queries or concerns, or you just want to talk. Speak to your tutor, Mrs Bretherton, Miss Mason or myself and we will be happy to help.

Wishing you all the very best for the next two weeks

Mr Johnson


Year 11 GCSE History Students

Today’s revision resources focus on catching criminals and the development of policing from 1500 to the present day. You could use the information to create an overall ‘success chart’: for each time period consider the positive and negatives of each form of catching criminals and use this as evidence to decide ‘how successful’ policing was at this time. This can then form the basis of a plan for a Section B exam question. Happy History revision!
