When the GCSE exam season begins!

  • Does your child know when their March trial exams and summer GCSE exams are taking place?
  • Are they revising regularly at home?
  • Are they attending intervention sessions each week?
  • Are they keeping up-to-date with homework and other deadlines?
  • Are they coping with the demands of organising their time and dealing with the pressures?

At WGS we know that this is a very important time in your child’s school career.  All the work of the past few years has been focused on this moment and we are here to help and support our students and parents through this period.  In addition to well-planned and taught lessons, we provide intervention sessions, help with study skills, revision packs, support evenings, exam information sessions and individualised support for our students.

Please find below the trial exam timetable, the GCSE booklet, blank revision planners and tips on how best to revise.  If we can do anything else to support you and/or your child at this important time, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Intervention

Each week we issue an intervention timetable outlining the support sessions running at lunchtimes and after school that week.  Sessions may be drop-in or students are asked to attend to focus on particular revision topics or complete important work for their GCSEs.  The timetables are issued to form tutors and displayed around school.  Please encourage your child to attend the sessions.
