Year 11 Parent Information

Your child is now entering the final part of their journey here at Woolmer Hill School, and will soon embark on a new phase of their lives, whether that be further education, an apprenticeship or training. The next few months will provide students with the opportunity to sit final examinations in their subjects and gain the qualifications that will enable them to fulfil their ambitions and realise their dreams. The importance of this part of Year 11 is not to be underestimated and we hope that our virtual Year 11 Information Evening materials will ensure that you and your child can really focus on how to achieve the results that they both require and deserve. Success comes from hard work, perseverance and determination and now is the time for your child to apply these characteristics to their studies to ensure success not only in their GCSEs but for the rest of their adult lives.

We have pulled together a "pack" of useful for information for all Year 11 students and families and you will find this below. It includes presentations from Mr Williams and Mr Clayton as well as timetables for the Period 7 Booster sessions that commence next week, the mocks in November and the soon to be confirmed Summer 2022 exams. There is also information on Post 16 Options including College Open Evening dates. We hope that you find this useful.

Best regards and thank you for your continuing support of Woolmer Hill School.

Mrs N Worsell, Year 11 Leader

COLLEGE OPEN EVENINGS

College Information Page

Our local colleges and places of further education were hoping to be able to be at school in person to talk to our students and families about their offerings, however, as you know that is not going to be possible at the moment. Instead they have provided us with links to presentations, assemblies, tours and websites and these can be found below. We hope that our students will find these useful.
