Year 11 Elevate Seminars

On Thursday 30th March, Year 11 students took part in seminars to help them to prepare for their GCSE exams. The first seminar was ‘Ace Your Exams’ which focused on revision, time management and how to minimise stress. The students engaged fully with the seminar and their feedback was extremely positive. All students said that they would recommend the programme to others and that they thought it was time well spent. The second seminar was ‘Student Elevation’. This session was based around motivation and a growth mind set. Student feedback showed how well students had engaged with the content and what they had taken away from the session.

Student comments included:

"I thought it was really helpful and gave me lots of ideas"

"It taught me how to deal with stress and that you can use a checklist to motivate yourself"

"It taught me how to plan things and cope in the exam season"

Well done to all Year 11 students on their positive attitudes to this event, now is the time to put into practice what you have learnt!
