Year 11 Bulletin

Year 11 Bulletin

Dear Parent/Carer

This week the focus for Year 11 has been preparing revision timetables and completing revision activities for the Pre-Public Examinations (PPEs) in the core subjects which start on Monday 6th. In order to help the students develop their time management skills they have all received a blank 10 week revision timetable and an exemplar revision timetable. Please ensure that your son or daughter creates a revision timetable if they have not done so already. As a reminder I have attached the timetable for the PPEs next week and ask that you support your child by making sure they have the correct equipment for the exams that they will sit, that they bring water in a clear plastic bottle and that they are at school ready to enter the exam hall by 8.25am.

Students received their second ‘Prom Points’ notification this week, these reflect their achievements from the start of the academic year up until February half term. The vast majority of RES students have 15 or more points and will be eligible to attend the prom in the summer term. More information about the Prom, Year Book and leavers’ hoodies will be released in the coming weeks. I am pleased to report that Year 11 students continue to have high attendance and as May approaches it is vital that this continues and that students take advantage of the extra sessions provided by our teaching staff.

This week the Year 11 assembly was hosted by Najaah Oozer from the National Citizen Service who delivered a presentation about ‘The Challenge’ (a government funded scheme) that provides students in Year 11 and 12 with the opportunity to engage in a number of activities designed to develop teamwork and leadership skills, provide them with the opportunity to experience different subjects such as photography, sport and media and to participate in a community project. As well as gaining new skills and experience, participation in the scheme will also enhance applications for colleges, university and employment. I have attached the letter from the NCS giving more details on the project, including how to apply and who to contact should your son or daughter wish to get involved.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you of the parents’ information evening on Tuesday 21st March. The focus for this evening will be to explore strategies to support your son and daughter in relation to their revision and preparations for the examinations they will take in the summer term. Further information regarding this event will be distributed next week.

Once again can I take the time to thank you for all your support with Year 11 this year and your continued support throughout the forthcoming PPEs and the final examinations in the summer term.

Yours faithfully

Mr R Blackiston
Head of Year 11
