Information for Year 12 students and their parents:

We have asked teachers to set work for Year 12 students during the closure. Work will be set using our existing online systems (Google Classrooms, email or website.) If you are unable to access work via these systems please let us know via your child’s Head of Year and we will try to send suitable work home.

In addition to the tasks that individual teachers set students can also;

  • Access the wealth of revision resources on line, including subject specific platforms such as GCSE Bitesize, Seneca and Educake. 
  • Use the published revision guides and question booklets that many students have purchased. 
  • Continue to revise from exercise books/class notes and lesson materials using the revision techniques that have been shared with them. (Help for parents to support their children with revision is available here.)
  • Access past papers from the relevant exam boards (See below the list of exam board specifications). 

Please help your child to structure their day. We would recommend they follow their usual timetable of lessons as a guide and we encourage them to start their day at 8.20am and finish at 3.30pm, allowing your child to develop poor routines of sleeping and eating will not support their learning. If you would like to support your child in designing a plan of study we have provided an example and blank template above.

It is vital that you and your child stay in touch with the separate class teachers throughout any period of closure. Students should be meeting deadlines that their teachers are setting and they should be making use of the chat forum on google classrooms to ask questions and seek any necessary help.

If you would like to email any subject teachers that teach your child please find the email addresses for all teachers on the relevant pages of the curriculum areas here. If you are struggling to engage your child in the work they have been set then please email Mr Draper or Mrs Frusciante.
