Year 11 is an exciting, demanding and challenging year for students. It is an opportunity to work hard to achieve their potential and to provide a gateway into Post 16 education and beyond.
Staying focused, determined, up to date with work, and a desire to succeed is what is required in order for students to be fully prepared for their exams and life beyond Year 11. At St Benedict’s we support all students to achieve their best. Students are encouraged through assemblies and with their tutors and academic mentors to discuss any issues that may rise throughout the year, and they have a number of people that they can go to for advice.
The pace of Year 11 can seem relentless with examinations, tests and controlled assessments. Students need to ensure they remain organised in order to meet deadlines. Students need to plan their homework schedule in addition to setting time aside for ongoing revision and review. They need to ensure they are working to the desired standard in class and in their homework tasks throughout the year.
We strive for each student to experience success in their GCSE examinations. We also encourage students to develop holistically to enhance their future life chances and progression in education; whether that is entry into sixth form, college or onto apprenticeships.
By home and school working closely together we can set our young people on a path to success.
