Last Blog for this half term.
Make sure that the half term holiday involves some school work / revision.
Year 13 students and some Year 12 students will be sitting exams in the summer. Exams are stressful, so you need to help and support yourself and your own wellbeing by preparing early for them. The most effective revision is done over a long period of time, as this enables you to keep repeating it, burning it into your long term memory. Plus by preparing early, you will be helping your own mental health and overall wellbeing.
We suggest that all revision notes: flashcards, mindmaps etc. are completed by Easter at the latest, to allow enough time for the repeat, repeat, repeat part of revision in the build up to the exam season.
We will be launching the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) to Year 12 after half term. It is voluntary, equivalent to an AS qualification and generates UCAS points. More details after half term.
