Year 11 students should prepare for next steps. Those of you that have made applications for sixth form will be advised on work to do in preparation for those courses. Those of you that have applied for college are advised to contact the college and ask what you should be doing during this time to prepare. It is important that you still revise the content you have been studying even though you haven’t got exams – you will still need all that knowledge for your future.

PE – All students should get at least 30 minutes exercise a day
