Extra GCSE study opportunitiesPosted: 23rd January 2019
Students are going mad on Mondays…for extra revision.
Monday Madness has been launched at Forest Hall School to give Year 11 an extra opportunity to study for their GCSE exams.
The study club focuses on additional English, maths and science revision where students get personalised sessions with their teachers in smaller groups.
Kayleigh Trainor, acting assistant head for achievement and outcomes, said: “Monday Madness is for students who could benefit from extra time studying. Attendance is really good and students are keen to take advantage of these extra opportunities they are being given as they realise they will benefit from them in the long-run. By attending study club, students are easing the pressure on themselves as the exams get nearer. If they do everything that is expected of them in school, it means they can relax and do what they want when they get home. They are developing such a good work ethic and can prioritise and understand deadlines. It is getting them ready for the future.
“So many of our students are focused on attending university and that is their motivation. They are asking for help with writing their sixth form applications and personal statements. I would say 90 per cent of our students know what they want to do and where they want to go. That is the kind of commitment that has to be given today.”
Every other day of the week, there are subject specific study clubs for both the core subjects and the options subjects for all students.
