Letter from the Head - Friday 19th April

In this issue: Preparing for the upcoming Year 11 and 13 exam season

Dear all,

This week we have had the very beginnings of exam season commence. Year 11 community language students have taken part in speaking exams at Balcarras, Year 11 PE students have taken part in moderation at Severn Vale and our Year 13 IT moderation have also been finalised.

As we now really gear up as a school for the crucial upcoming period of GCSE and A Level examinations, I wanted to re-emphasise the significance of this time for our Year 11 and 13 students at Holmleigh Park High School. The upcoming exam season represents a culmination of years of hard work and perseverance on the part of our students, and it is essential that they are fully supported in their efforts to achieve their academic goals.

At Holmleigh Park, we recognise the importance of providing our students with the best possible preparation for their examinations. To this end, I am pleased to inform you that we will again be implementing a purpose-built Year 11 and 13 ‘exit timetable’ specifically designed to ensure that our exam students receive the maximum amount of instruction, support and guidance from their teachers during this critical period.

This ‘exit timetable’ has been carefully crafted to allow for additional revision sessions and targeted intervention strategies aimed at addressing any areas of concern or difficulty that students may encounter. Our dedicated team of staff are fully committed to working closely with each student to help them reach their full potential and succeed in their examinations.

It is important to remember that success in GCSE and A Level examinations opens doors to a wide range of opportunities for our students, whether they choose to pursue further education, enter the workforce, or embark on other paths. By investing time and effort into their studies now, our students are laying the foundation for future success and fulfilment in whatever future endeavours they choose to pursue.

If your child is in Year 11 and 13 and you wish to discuss any aspect of exam season with us, please do not hesitate to contact either Mr Hogarth [Year 11] or Mrs Marsden-Green [Year 13].

I wish you all a lovely weekend,

Mr Hudson
