Blaise High School

Y11

Countdown to exams

Year 11 - Reaching the top of the mountain

P6

All Year 11s attend 1 extra lesson each day, meaning over a 2-week period they have 2 Maths, 2 Science, 2 English lessons and 4 Options lessons.

P7 and Working Lunch

As well as P6, we offer students a range of additional support with our teaching team. Please see the timetable below. Working Lunch runs every day in G29. P7 runs Monday - Thursday from 15:55.

Attendance

Students with excellent attendance are in the best position to achieve the top grades in their GCSEs. 100% attendance: Evidence shows that students are 2 times more likely to achieve at least 5 GCSEs (at grades 9-4), than students who have 80% attendance.

Holiday school

Each holiday, teachers run additional lessons to support students with improving knowledge and revision techniques to maximise their exam performance.

Results day

Students can collect their GCSE results on 22nd August 2024.

We will of course contact parents with further details on all of the above closer to the time. 

 

Revision Strategies

In addition to subject homework, students should complete at least 1 hour of revision per night. We recommend the following revision strategies. 

  • Flashcard revision (using flashcards)

  • Cornell Notes (using your practice book)

  • Self-Quizzing (using your practice book)

  • Past Paper Questions (from Final Ascent)

The video below shows how to use these strategies effectively.
