Year 11 – Cracking the Core

On Monday 9th November, our Year 11 students began benefiting from yet another smart raising achievement strategy. Having experienced the most bizarre first half term of any year and taking into account the reduced contact time due to lockdown periods, it became apparent that we would have to think creatively about how in support of the drive to achieve their very best in the three core subjects of Maths, English and Science, CDC time in the morning has been cleverly coordinated so the students each get a minimum of an additional 60 minutes of focused revision from a core subject specialist per week. The students carousel between Maths English and Science according to a weighted timetable arranged by greatest needs.

Many student comments from previous years have highlighted that they felt this was one of the most impactful raising achievement strategies they experienced.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays, the students will have there Cracking the Core session. On Thursdays, they will have their Year group assemblies and on Fridays the students will have a resilience and well being themed session with their CDC. In the Friday sessions, we are recognising the need to look after students mental health and well being at an increasingly pressured time of their school careers.

‘Cracking the Core’ with CDC time – what a great way to kick start the day! We wish our Year 11s the very best for the remaining weeks before the exams and as always we’ll be with you along every step of the way.
