Year 11 study leave
Thursday, 18 May 2017 08:09

Year 11 study leave

Dear Parent/Carer,

I would like to thank you for your continued support in the run up to the start of study leave. All year 11 students are expected to be in school and to attend all of their lessons. RES staff are facilitating purposeful revision lessons and working with the students to build their confidence and answer last minute queries. It is therefore vital that students continue to maintain the high standards in relation to attendance that they have shown throughout the academic year. RES will continue to expect the highest of standards and thank you for your support in this.

Study leave begins on the 26th May. There will be a leavers assembly at 11.15am, this will finish at approximately 12.15pm, unless they have an afternoon exam students will be able to leave school at this time.

Once again I would like to thank you for your continued support over the past academic year and wish your son/ daughter the best of luck in the forthcoming examinations.

Best wishes,

Miss K. Armstrong
Assistant Headteacher – KS4 Lead

Year 11 Bulletin

Year 11 Bulletin

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 11 have continued to show focus in the run up to their exams, they have shown effort, commitment and dedication to their studies throughout this academic year and maintained this focus at the start of exam season. The final examinations start this week and it is vital that students know and are reminded of the rules and procedures. We have been encouraging students to revisit the documents on Frog so they are familiar with and confident of what is required in exams. Recently RES sent out an e-mail to all parents with the examinations booklet containing information for students and parents. This information is on the school website along with answers to some frequently asked questions, please use the link below.

As previously mentioned this year’s “Prom” will again be held at Burhill Golf Club on Thursday 29th June 2017 with tickets priced at £35, these are on sale at the box office at morning break. I am also pleased to announce that members of the Year 11 leavers’ committee have been working hard on organising the designs and styles for Year 11 leavers’ hoodies which can now be ordered from the box office, they are priced at £19. Friday the 19th May is the deadline for students to collect prom points. Final scores will be given to students on Monday 22nd, students who have not been able to maintain 15 ‘prom points’ will not be eligible to attend the prom. The deadline for purchasing prom tickets, yearbooks and hoodies is Friday 23rd June, please be aware that yearbooks and hoodies will be available to collect from the Main Hall on the GCSE results day, the 24th August.

On Friday 26th May students will officially leave school and the leavers’ assembly will take place from 11.15am until 12.15pm which I am sure promises to be a lively, humorous and emotional occasion. Students will be expected to attend school after half term for exams and lessons in subjects where they are still to take exams. Students should continue to wear their identification lanyards at this time and sign in and out upon entering and leaving the school site at the Hersham Road entrance. Should students wish to stay and revise at school the library will be available to Year 11 during the remainder of the exam season. As they complete their final examinations students are expected to complete an off roll form showing that they have handed back all equipment, lanyards etc. These can be printed off from Frog or students can collect one from student services.

It has been my privilege to work with Year 11 and to share their journey, experiences, development and progress over the past academic year and I would like to thank you as parents and carers for all your support and efforts during this important stage.

Yours faithfully,

Mr R Blackiston
Head of Year 11

Year 11 English Update

Year 11 English Update

Dear parent/ carer,

We are writing to update you on our plans for year 11 in the final weeks before the English Language and Literature examinations commence.

The March pre-public examination results have now been given back to students and they have looked at what they need to action in order to be even more successful in the final examinations. We were very pleased with their attitude and approach to their studies in the run up to these mocks and were gratified to see that this was reflected in their results, particularly in English Language, where we saw some real gains and improvements with many students’ responses.

An action that we are taking based upon these results is to regroup students for an intensive week of boosters, from Monday 8th May until Friday 12th May. Students will secure and build upon their skills in reading and writing for the grade that they achieved in English Language. These targeted boosters will help to build confidence and competence in meeting the needs of each of the assessment demands for each of the questions and will be a valuable way of securing the best grade possible. Students have been informed of their group today, so that they are ready and prepared for next week.

A reminder of the current interventions available for students is below.

  • Thursday after school sessions from 3pm until 4pm - open to all to attend.
  • Tuesday lunchtime – targeted students who are not yet achieving a grade 4
  • Thursday lunchtime – targeted students aiming to achieve a grade 7 to 9.

Students have been informed of these sessions via the tutor team and will know if they have been invited.

During May half term, we will be running a drop in clinic where students can address any issues that they may have with either of the language papers. This will be held on Tuesday 30th May between 1pm and 3pm in W5. We will also be offering a number of targeted sessions between 10 am and 12pm on the same day and students invited to these will receive letters in due course.

Finally, I would like to thank you for your continued support, especially over the last two years. We are very proud of the hard work that students have invested in English as well as the good progress that they are making and we wish them every success in their summer examinations.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Suzanne Darby
Head of English

Additional Mathematic support

Additional Mathematics support

Dear Parent/Carer,

We now have roughly 4 weeks until our first Mathematics GCSE exam, therefore I am writing to inform you of additional Mathematics sessions that we are holding throughout the exam season to support your son/daughter to succeed in their Mathematics GCSE.

Firstly we will be holding revision on 3 separate Saturday mornings prior to each Mathematics examination, which will run from 10.00am until 1.00pm. The dates are as follows:

Paper 1: Exam date – Thursday 25 May (AM) Revision Morning – Saturday 20 May
Paper 2: Exam date – Thursday 8 June (AM) Revision Morning – Saturday 3 June
Paper 3: Exam date – Thursday 13 June (AM) Revision Morning – Saturday 10 June

Our Wednesday after school Mathematics drop-in will continue to run throughout the exam season, and our Mathematics teachers will still be holding revision sessions during the usual timetabled Year 11 lessons during your son/daughter’s exam leave after the May half term break, which I urge your son/daughter to attend. Lastly, we will be holding breakfast revision starting at 7:45am on the morning of each Mathematics examination, where all of our Mathematics staff will be available to support your son/daughter with any last minute questions; this will be held in the J Block.

We hope you agree these are excellent opportunities for our students to maximise their revision in order to succeed in their Mathematics GCSE. We hope they will make the most of them by attending all of the sessions.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like any further information.

Yours sincerely,

Miss V Scarff
Head of Mathematics

Frog has changed

Frog has changed

Dear Parent/Carer,

You will have noticed a small change to our VLE Frog. Following a recent update, Frog have released a new feature which allows homework to be viewed on a weekly calendar as well as in the traditional list view. Following this the button for accessing homework has changed slightly to say ‘Homework’ and it now links to somewhere slightly different. When clicked you will still see the old link to the list view for homework (My Child’s Work) and also a calendar showing all of the homework for your son/daughter for the current week. . It displays assignments on the due date and shows the current week, although you can navigate to previous/future weeks if you wish. Once homework has ’Closed’ it disappears from the calendar. Please rest assured that you can still view homework in the old way if you prefer, but the calendar hopefully provides you with a clearer view of when different assignments are due. This change has also been mirrored for students and so they should really benefit from this additional tool to organise their homework.

If you have any questions of queries please don’t hesitate to contact the school using This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Assistant Headteacher
