X21 Textbooks please!


Firstly congratulations to the Y11s for completing all their Science GCSEs. I am grateful for all your hard work this year and wish you all the best for the future.

Secondly, could we please have any science textbooks returned to use for other years. I will trade you a textbook for chocolate on Monday and Tuesday.

Many thanks

Mr Campbell

X21 Final Speaking Exam in Spanish

X21 have been working extremely hard in class and at home to prepare for their final exam. Though there are still a few weeks to go, just to let parents and carers know the dates for this final exam will be Monday 29th April – Wednesday 1st May. A timetable has been shared with students, so they already know their day and time. As discussed in class, students should be taking some time over the Easter break to revise ready for this.

Just a reminder about support sessions every Monday night for this, and that there will be an extra session on Wednesday 24th April after school as well; this will be their last chance to practise before the exams start. Good luck X21!

Arrangements for X21 during May

During May, X25-22 have a two-week break. As you know during this time there are examinations happening for Year 11 students.

All X21 students will need to attend school as usual for the whole of the week commencing Monday 20th May as there are examinations throughout this week.

In the following week, we are conscious that students will need a break and some time to do revision outside of school.

All X21 students will also be in school on Friday 31st May from 9.15am for exam preparation sessions.

It is not our intention to ask the whole cohort of X21 students into school in the rest of the week commencing 27th May. However there may be individual students for whom we put together bespoke support sessions in this week. Of course we will be mindful of the need for students to rest, and will contact families in good time if we identify a need following further assessments in the coming weeks.

Thanks as always for your continued support

X21 Science GCSE Intervention – Tuesday


All X21 students are required to attend Science GCSE intervention every Tuesday from 3.30-4.30.

Students will be have personalised targets and areas of study based on the mocks and work in small groups with the support of a teacher.

On the whole we are pleased with the mock results in science but are well aware that we have loads of work still to do to support all students reach their potential. Your support last term was vital to this. Thank you and we ask again that you support us with these interventions.

If you have any questions about the mocks, GCSEs or interventions please contact me.

Best wishes,

Robbie Campbell
