Year 11

Together Everyone Achieves More

This year

Y11 is the most crucial yet the shortest year for our students studying towards their GCSEs. It is indeed a very exciting year for your child as they complete their final assessments, sit mock exams and start applying for college. There will be guidance around applying for LaSWAP and other colleges. Once your child achieves the required grades for their chosen course, they are guaranteed a place at LaSWAP.

I am pleased to say that we have a very strong pastoral team around Y11. Please remember to contact your child’s form tutor should you have any queries or concerns. I would urge you to make a note of all the key dates including parents evening on the Thursday 23 November where I look forward to meeting many parents.

Attendance has never been more important with less than seven months of lessons, it is imperative that your child has excellent attendance.

I would like to thank you for your continued support and am extremely confident that together we will be celebrating your child’s success on results day.
