Dear Parent / Carer,


Period 5 Intervention for Year 11 – January 2018


As we continue our preparations for your child’s final exams, I would like to take the opportunity to update you.  The second window of mock exams begins on Monday 5th February.


It is our intention to provide as much support as possible to all of our students so that they make progress towards their pathway grade and achieve to the best of their ability.  With this in mind, our programme of ‘Period 5’ lessons will continue from Monday 15/1/18.  These additional sessions are aimed at everyone in the year group in order that each student:


  • Catches up with any work that has been missed
  • Fills gaps in learning
  • Has extra support on topics / units where their marks are not as high as they should be
  • Is provided with the opportunity to boost their grade
  • Has access to masterclasses that will help them achieve the top grades.


Period 5 will take place on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (and Friday for a small number of students) of each week.  Students will be given a personalised timetable showing where they are required to be.  The programme of period 5 is now tailored to your child’s individual needs and we will continue to review it every 2 weeks.


As we stated in November, it is our intention that all students attend all sessions and, as such, we have linked their attendance to our ‘Passport to Prom’ scheme where students work towards their goal of getting to the Prom this year.


If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Sterland, Mr Fielding or myself at school.  We look forward to seeing you at next week’s Parents’ Evening.


Yours sincerely,







D J Hallam

Vice Principal
