Head of Year 11: Mr D Williams

 

At Court Fields School Year 11 is the result of many years work, our students need to be prepared to work hard, to achieve their desired grades. Students need to strive for high levels of attendance, punctuality and effort as well as becoming independent learners. To this end each student has been given the opportunity, at the beginning of term, to open a personalised Bitesize account online, to guide their revision and after hours study for their subjects.

Our students in Year 11 must always try to be positive, feel confident, be respectful to everyone, and give their best effort in all lessons. We realise that it is not always easy to achieve this and so students must make sure that they seek support and guidance from their timetabled subject teachers and tutor if they are facing any challenges or experiencing difficulties.

The Year 11 prefects run lunchtime clubs for the younger students at various points during the week where they can play games or just chat with their friends or the Year 11s.

The Year 11 Yearbook Team will spend the Autumn and Winter terms gathering information, photos and anecdotes about the Year group and their time at Court Fields School. The Yearbook is always a wonderful souvenir of their time with us.

The students will also have the opportunity to purchase a 2019 Court Fields School Leavers hoodie, the design planning and final decisions will be getting under way soon.

During the Spring Term the Year 11 students are busy planning their revision for Pre Public Exams (P.P.E.’s) and applying to the local Colleges. There is a broad selection of subject intervention and revision sessions held during lunch time, after school and during the Spring and Easter holidays. The Year 11 students will have had a number of presentations and sessions on how to revise, how to work out a revision timetable and how to combat stress.

 

Revision Tips

  • Revise in 25 – 30 minutes sessions, allowing a 10 – 15 minutes break to allow your brain a rest.
  • Reduce important lesson notes to key points that are easier to revise.
  • Make the revision timetable early! Organisation is a key part of revision.
  • Practice, practice, practice exam style questions! Exam technique – You need to be able to link and apply the knowledge or theory you have learnt to what the question is asking.
  • Meet your deadlines – know when assignments are due in and make the correct amount of time to complete them to a standard you are proud of.
  • Proof read work before a deadline – get draft work to your teacher early for comments and suggestions about how to improve.
  • You could invest in a wall-planner (or devise one of your own). Write all coursework deadlines and exams on it.
  • Create a quiet work space where you will be comfortable and not interrupted

The major non-academic item in the calendar for Year 11 students is the Court Fields School Leavers Prom. The prom occurs soon after, or near the end of, the G.C.S.E. exams. Along with the Year 11 students, the Head of Year and Form Tutors there are also many other members of staff who have been invited by the students. Preparations for the school Prom are always a lot of fun and require planning carefully. Remaining time is utilised with assemblies to deliver vital information, advice and guidance as well as our bespoke tutor programme to help students make the correct choices for the next stage of their education.
