Message from the Principal

This week’s introduction from myself is deliberately brief.  It was superb to listen to both Year 11 and Post 16 students share such positive thoughts about their first round of examinations. Equally, the positive comments from the recent Year 8 subject evening was very constructive.

Best wishes

We are very pleased to announce that our Year 9 student Thomas Fox has been selected to run for the Peterborough Schools County Squad in the forthcoming County Championship Thomas will be competing in the 100m/200m as well as being part of the relay team.

Maths Revision
With 6 days until the non calculator exam students should be continuing to use the attached countdown, alongside Hegarty and other revision resources this will really make the difference to close the last few gaps on areas students still have issues with.

Please find attached week 12 of the extra questions students can do at home with the support of parents as mark schemes and examiners reports are also attached (in the letters home section). Next week I will continue to attach five topics that regularly appear on the calculator exams, there is also a Personal Learning Checklist so students can track what they feel they have mastered and what they need more help on. This can be used alongside Hegarty maths which has video tutorials to help students understand topics.

Extra revision classes will run every Monday lunchtime in 3U22 for all year 11s

Targeted revision classes for specific groups will take place after school as follows: 

  • A1/B1 Mondays (CTK),Thursdays (JHY/NBN),
