Year 11 Mind Set

Are you a Year 11 student? Have you started your revision? Do you need some extra support? Then check out "The Mindset" from BBC Bitesize.

The Mind Set is a group of student coaches from a variety of academic and diverse backgrounds, who have all recently taken their exams and understand the pressures involved.

In a series of short films the students offer practical advice on topics such as How to get started and How to plan your revision through to mental wellbeing advice such as How to stay motivated and How to believe in yourself.

Visit the Mind Set website for free practical guides and motivational advice.

 

Year 11 Half-Term Revision

Although the summer exams in May and June seem a long way away, they do have a habit of sneaking up far quicker than any of us expect! Do not leave revision until the last minute which causes sleepless nights, last minute cramming and in many cases underperformance.

February half term revision offers dedicated time for students to have a boost in their revision schedule, taking off some of the pressure later and aiming for higher grades.

The timetable can be found below:

Monday:

Science: 09.30 – 11.30.

Media: 10.00-12.00

Dance: 12.00 – 14.00

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday:

Winchmore Camp: Maths and English – 08.30 – 15.00

Friday:

RE: 09.30 – 11.30

Sports Science: 10.00 – 15.00

Health and Social Care and Childcare: 09.00 – 12.30
