The Boulton Newsletter - Spring Term Issue 02
Welcome to the second edition of our academy newsletter 'The Boulton' for the Spring Term. I hope you are all well and looking forward to the arrival of warmer and lighter evenings ahead.
Here at Ark Boulton we have been busy preparing our students for success in their GCSE examinations and coursework deadlines. Students have benefited from the targeted lessons and extra revision sessions held throughout the term, delivered by our staff. We have also had support from external workshops to give students the best support possible at such a crucial stage. We were lucky enough to have two of our Year 11 students go on a study residential at the University of Oxford where they engaged in workshops about revision skills and learning abilities. These skills will no doubt help them with their GCSE revision and future education at college and university.
The examination season has come round very quickly, so my advice to students is to always prepare thoroughly. Set a timetable, take regular breaks which consist of some fresh air and outdoor walking. Take advantage of the facilities available at the academy: the library, subject teacher’s support at break and lunchtimes, targeted revision sessions, and act upon feedback from the ‘walking talking’ mocks. At Ark Boulton Academy we want your son/daughter to achieve the best grades possible, and I know I can count on the support of parents in achieving this.
