Year 11

This page has been put together for parents of Year 11 students, to provide the information needed to understand and support your child’s learning at this important stage in their academic career.

The prospect of GCSE examinations, the anxiety over results and the pressure of making important choices about future aspirations are all conducive to potentially stressful times, but the end of the year is also a time when students can feel immense pride and satisfaction in their well-deserved achievements. Hard work and dedication will be required from all students to help them to reach their full potential in their GCSE examinations.

All classwork, homework and controlled assessments are of vital importance and should be taken as seriously as the examinations themselves. We will support every student as best as we can and aim to equip them with the necessary skills to achieve every success in their future path, whichever direction that may take.

I look forward to seeing all students feeling proud of their results in August and hope that we can work together to achieve this goal. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact your son/daughter's Form Tutor or myself.

We have high expectations for all students and this includes consistently demonstrating excellent behaviour, engagement and independence in their learning. We also expect students to have a high attendance of over 97% and to be punctual to school and to all their lessons. Finally, we also expect students to wear the school uniform correctly and with pride. We expect them to be brilliant ambassadors for the school – both internally and externally.

We will consistently challenge and support students to ensure that they develop into young adults that the school, parents and local and wider community will be proud of.

Form Tutors should be the first port of call if there is a pastoral issue regarding your son/daughter. Please contact their subject tutor if there is an issue specific to that subject.

To email a member of staff, please use their surname followed by their first initial (John Smith = smithj) and then add @chancellors.herts.sch.uk

Form Time

Year 11 will have a 20-minute form time each day with their Form Tutor. There will be activites to participate in, Science and Maths revision tasks, a weekly assembly and other activities that will include current affairs discussions and debating. Nearer to assessments and mock exams they will be allowed to revise.

Form Time is an essential part of the school day and students are expected to come to form time fully prepared to learn. Students should always have some work or revision to complete. Form time is exceedingly valuable and it is imperative that it is not missed through lateness.

Homework

Homework will follow a similar pattern as in Year 10, however more emphasis may be on preparing for assessments through effective revision. Students should expect at least one homework a week for each subject. Failure to hand in or complete homework to an acceptable standard may result in sanction.

Revision

Teachers are always on hand to support students if needed, and many subject teachers will have already shared revision techniques with their classes. Please monitor your son/daughter in their learning and encourage them to have well-presented and organised work. This will help them greatly when they need to revise their learning and prepare for assessments.

A full and comprehensive intervention programme for Year 11 students will be published when confirmed.
