Work has begun in earnest at Saint John Houghton to prepare our Year 10 and Year 11 students for the challenges ahead. As part of our programme of interventions and support, we will be running a study evening for students on Thursday 12 November. Students will attend study sessions from 3.30-6.00 with a short break between sessions. Students may opt for different subject surgeries and tutorials – more details will be provided in school for how to sign up for these.
Substantial refreshments will be provided for students 6.00-6.30 and then parents are invited to attend a presentation for a short time before the event is over at approximately 7.15pm. The presentation will provide lots of tips and advice for parents supporting young adults through this tough couple of school years. There will also be an opportunity to purchase a really useful publication with top tips for parents of GCSE students (cost of £3), so please bring change if you wish to buy this recommended guide.
I hope to see lots of students and parents attending the event and look forward to seeing you there.

Year 10 and Year 11 Progress Leader
