Crew Nightingale are already rising to the challenge of this crucial academic year. Students have reflected on their mock exams and created themselves new revision timetables for the first half term. These have been based on the areas from their mock exams they have identified as needing to improve.  It has been really pleasing to see the quality and integrity of their reflections as well as the targets they have set. While the mornings this week have focused on academic growth our afternoons have looked at character growth and how we can work as a Crew to achieve and succeed. Building on successes at Sports Day, Crew have built upon on these skills – listening to each other, communicating effectively and working with each other- I have been really impressed with the conversations held and actions they have taken.  I look forward to hearing Crew share their reflections during our upcoming SLCs. More on this to follow!

X21 Science GCSE Intervention – Tuesday

Hi,

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

X21 mock examination results

X21 students have recently completed their mock examinations.

We will be holding a mock results day at XP School Monday 4th February between 9.00am and 10.00am.

Students must arrive in school between these times to collect their results. During this time crew leaders and senior staff will be available to have informal discussions with students.

We encourage families to attend with their sons or daughters where possible. The purpose of the morning is not just to give students the results for their mocks, but also to give students an experience of what the results day in August will feel like.

Following the results day, we will invite each student and their family into school during the weeks commencing 11th and 18th February for a formal individual ‘results conference’.

In attendance at each student’s results conference will be their family, crew leader and other staff where appropriate. During this conference students will present their reflection on their results, identifying strengths and gaps in knowledge. Each student will then agree a set of targets and a plan with their crew leader and family. Crew leaders will also be able to direct parents and family members to workshops in the following week (see below).

In the week commencing 25th February, lead teachers for core subjects will be running workshops for parents and family members after school in the evening. In these workshops, parents and family members will be given specific advice on how to support their son or daughter. All family members are welcome at any of these workshops. However, during the results conferences in the prior weeks crew leaders will give advice on which specific workshops we would like families to attend.

X21 Mock Examinations

X21 will be undertaking GCSE Mock Examinations on their return tomorrow – I’m sure they can’t wait!

Monday will be a Walking Talking Mock for English with the Spanish Speaking Exams filling Monday afternoon and all day Tuesday and Wednesday.

All the exams are based in XP East and times and rooms are included in the Timetable below. There are Pre Exam sessions taking place when key staff will ensure that students are prepared with a final session before they sit down for the exam.

Good luck X21!!

There will be an assessment on the first three acts of the play Othello on Monday 5 November for X21 students. I’ve posted guidance and some really useful resources on google classroom to help you prepare. Essentially, you need to read and annotate Act Three and then revise Acts One and Two ready to write about the play on Monday. Any problems or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me!

Good luck in your preparation!
