GCSE Success Evening

On Wednesday 9th November, Ark Boulton Academy invited all Year 11 students and their parents/carers to a GCSE Success Evening.

The aim of the event was to provide advice and guidance on how to best prepare for the Summer examinations and completion of the GCSEs that they have been studying for.

We had advice clinics on Examination Health and Mindfulness, Examination Codes of Conduct, information on new GCSEs and a series of stalls for material on specific subjects.

Our Assistant Principal, Mrs Bhargav commented; “What a wonderful evening!  Another successful event, where year 11 students, along with their parents were able to gain an insight into effective study skills, revision techniques and speak to their teachers about revision plans. I am so proud of the enthusiasm and support shown by the parents who attended, many of whom gained insight into the exam procedure and components of GCSEs.”

All students who attended received a study pack which included subject specific revision guides, a study skills planner, a personal revision guide and stationary. All equipped for the crucial months ahead!

Mr Hussain, a parent, commented how he now feels more equipped to support his son whilst he is revising at home.

With an amazing 84% attendance for the event, we are proud of our Year 11’s progress thus far, and look forward to supporting and helping them to achieve their grades for the months ahead.
