GCSE Success Fair

Wednesday 27th March 2019

5.30 - 6.30 Or 7.00 - 8.00

Dear Parents and Carers of Year 11 Students,

You will be aware the final stretch before our main exam period is now upon us.  We are as ever increasingly aware of the importance of acting as a slick team around our Year 11 students, working with yourselves to make sure that they are fully supported and confident over the next few crucial weeks.

We would like to invite you to our GCSE Success Fair on Wednesday 27th March.  The evening is designed to offer a range of information, tips and strategies to support our young people whilst they prepare for and sit their formal exams.  As a school we have collectively worked to consider the barriers that young people face and would like to share some of the support strategies that have been successful with many of our young people previously.

How will the evening work?

You will have a choice of session to attend on the evening, 5.30 – 6.30 or 7 – 8 (the sessions are identical, this is purely to ensure flexibility for yourselves).  There will be a 10 minute introduction in our hall followed by the opportunity to visit four tables of your choice (listed below) for ten minutes each, this time will be split into 5 minutes of the member of staff leading the table sharing their strategies and 5 minutes discussing these together and asking questions.


To sign up please select the time you would like to attend from the side menu, then select 4 tables.  Each individual attending on the evening needs to complete the online sign up to ensure sufficient spaces at tables.
