At Biddenham students will start their GCSE courses after October half term of year 9 and complete them May/June of year 11.
Students will be assessed regularly during this period in order to ensure they are progressing well and achieving to the best of their ability.
Students and Parents/Carers need support during this time of education, examinations can seem very daunting and preparation is the key to success.
We have put these pages together to support Students, Parents and Carers during this period of time. We also have a twitter feed, which ‘tweets’ regularly with new tips for exam success.
During Key Stage 4, it is not just the students who need support, Parents/ Carers have a large role to play during this time of your child’s school career.
We have put together a number of resources to support you during this school phase.
Every subject has a Google classroom, which is explained below, your child will have access to this classroom from their Chromebook and every available resource is posted on these classrooms. It is good to get confident using Google Classrooms in order to understand fully how to access the information available to your child. Parents can have access to every classroom their child is in, therefore you can get updated weekly on the work they covered during the lesson and what their homework should be.
Please also speak to your child’s form tutor for any further support or questions during this time.
