Achieving in Year 11
To help students to prepare for their summer exams, a series of mock exams are held in December to help students experience the rigours of the exam room and to understand how much more work may need to take place to achieve the highest possible results.
Preparing for Progression
Year 11 is also a time for further choices - whether to stay and study at the Academy's Sixth Form or whether to look for an apprenticeship or study elsewhere. This website has substantial information to inform these choices and we would encourage you to look at our Sixth Form offer and Options at 16+
