Uniform

Uniform is as important as always with Year 11 being role models for younger year groups.
In particular:

  • School shoes not boots or trainers
  • No earrings or any jewellery

Revision Timetables

Please click here to access the blank weekly revision timetable which Year 11 students should use to plan their weekly study. We always refer to the mantra ‘3 hours per day, 5 days per week’ in the run up to exams. These 15 hours of independent study can be spread over the week in a number of ways but serves as a guide to how much revision students should be completing from February to June in their final year. After school and weekend sessions should also count towards these 15 hours.
