Year 11 Parent Information
Over the past few academic years, we have run a Year 11 information evening which has been an opportunity to share with students and parents’ key piece of information on all things ‘GCSE’. Due to the challenging circumstances of this year, we felt it was more important than ever to share as much information with you as we can. We have made the decision to conduct this Information Evening remotely this year. This decision has allowed for us to have every GCSE subject represented through a video, which we hope will be really useful to you and the students. The intention of these series of short videos is for GCSE subjects to share with parents and students all key information for each subject area. This information will include the structure of GCSE assessment, any changes to examination content due to the current climate, what the students will study this year and some hints and tips on how to support your child in each subject. Furthermore, other videos have been produced to support students and parents in their PPE & Examination preparation and Post 16 option applications.
All of these videos will remain available ‘on demand’ throughout the year. I think it is important to remember, that the recording of the videos have taken place over the last couple of weeks (the first two weeks in October), therefore, if you are watching on demand, the content of these videos, may well, depending on the circumstances of the academic year, be updated and amended throughout the year. We really hope you find the content of these useful in your and your children’s GCSE preparations.
