Year 11: Developing Grit - (VIRTUAL) Parents Meeting

At this stage in your child's education, he/she is preparing fully for their GCSE examinations; the outcomes of these will make a significant impact on life chances, and we want to do everything in our power to help him/her achieve personal success.

To this end, we have put together a number of presentations where we share with you information on how you can support your child during this very important year.  

Miss Fernandes, Learning coordinator for Year 11, will introduce the suite of presentations and give you some important information specific to each subject area.

We are also delighted to be able to share the following four videos with you:
