Year 11 get their Mock GCSE results
This Tuesday was Mock Results Day for our Year 11 students. It's a big day, and an important step on their journey towards the summer GCSE exams.
Our gym was fizzing with excitement as the students poured in to collect their results all together. Brown envelopes were received and quickly torn open, and the contents greeted with nervous frowns and relieved smiles.
A number of students found something extra too: a golden or silver ticket hidden in their envelope. At assembly this morning, these students will receive a special reward in recognition of their great progress and attitude.
Now, we move into our next phase of GCSE preparation. Students and staff work together to assess and analyse these mock results, identify strengths and build on weaker areas – so that by summer term, every student is ready for the real thing!
