Progress Sessions for Years 10 and 11

We have introduced 'progress sessions' for years 10 and 11 to help students gain the best Progress 8 score possible.

Year 10 progress sessions

Year 10 students get additional lessons three times a week in subjects where they have been identified as making the least progress from their most recent assessments. These Progress Sessions are led by a subject specialist who run these sessions during tutor time from 08:35 to 09:10 on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday.

In addition, we use Friday mornings for careers, Building Cultural Capital and an assembly programme. The assemblies are delivered by members of the Senior Leadership Team, Directors or external agencies and focus on themes such as: changes to exam specifications; Post 16 applications; Progress and Attainment 8; and extra-curricular enrichment.


Year 11 progress sessions

Hga progress sessions 1Form time in the morning focuses primarily on the core subjects of English, Maths, Science, French, Geography, History, RE and computing. Students undertake an extra 40 minutes a day in form groups where teachers focus on a particular skill needed to help students achieve in their exams. 

The progress groups are bespoke for each student. We use the latest progress data for each student to carefully select the right group for them. Groups are small and students are supported by a teacher to help focus their work.

Afternoon intervention sessions have a different focus. While the morning sessions focus on the core subjects, the afternoon sessions look at options as well. Each student will receive a one hour carefully planned session from their subject teacher, with a focus on coursework as well. If students achieve the goals of the session, they can be released early, so the groups remain small and focussed.


Year 11 Maths 7:30am sessions

Students also have the opportunity to get extra Maths intervention sessions very early before school. These sessions run strategically to provide individual support to students based on their needs. The sessions are delivered by Maths teachers and run from Monday to Friday.
