Year 11 GCSE Revision Sessions

Posted in: Latest News on Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Dear Parent/Carer

To confirm all of the extra support that is being put in place for the remaining time that year 11 have in the run up to their GCSEs. Below there is a list of all of the after school twilight sessions that will be running and also details of all of the sessions that are being offered by staff during the half term and Easter Holidays. For the Easter holidays some of the dates are to be confirmed but individual subject teachers will contact you separately with that information nearer the time.

The students are working so hard but we are aware some of them are quite concerned at the short time we have left and these extra sessions are designed to help them with that. We would suggest that all students do their very best to attend any relevant sessions but particularly those students who are currently working below target should come too so that we can ensure all of us have done everything we possibly can in the run up to exams.

GCSE success is vital to all of your young people for when they leave St James. Competition for College, university places and later for jobs is extremely fierce these days, as we know you are aware, and a final push now will secure that success for them.
