We would like to invite you and your child to a GCSE information evening on Thursday 21st April. Year 10 is obviously a crucial time for all students and in turn this information evening is an opportunity for us to provide you and your child with guidance and advice on how to manage this very important part of their educational career.
The evening will include general information about the trial exams in May/June as well as details of work we will be doing with your child in order to prepare them for this. Guidance will also be given to you as parents, on how you can best support your child at home with regards to revision and managing their time effectively. As English and maths play such a key role in any further education choices that your child may make, we will also be providing specific advice on how you can help to prepare your child for their examinations in these subjects.
Following a short 30 minute presentation in our school hall, myself, your child’s Head of Year and Heads of Department for all subjects will then be available should you have any queries or require any specific advice regarding your child’s exams.
The evening will begin at 6.00pm and will last for approximately 1 hour. An information booklet with guidance from all subjects will be given to all parents on arrival.
So that we can cater for all who wish to attend, please can you indicate on the reply slip below if you will be attending the evening. Reply slips should be returned to your child’s form tutor by MONDAY 11th APRIL or if you prefer you can e mail to Slyons@bishopstopfords.enfield.sch.uk.
With best wishes
Ms R Gallacher
Head of Year 10
