Year 11 is an important year as students will be taking their GCSEs at the end of the year. We do a lot of work on preparing students for their exams and helping them track their progress during the year. There is also a focus on students’ post-16 plans.
We are lucky to have a strong group of tutors, many of whom have been with their tutor groups from Year 7. We also offer three extra tutor groups in Year 11 with a focus on maths, English or science. Students are put in these tutor groups for short periods over a half term to support their maths, English or science work. These are run by the KS4 coordinators for maths, English and science.
During the year the prefects will be taking on a range of responsibilities within their cluster groups. Prefects will also contribute to the school community by being a presence at break and lunch. The prefect system gives students an opportunity to develop their leadership skills and give something back to Stanborough School.
We have a range of support strategies in place for students in Year 11 and students know that they can speak to their tutors or the year leader / deputy leader about any issues. We are always there to help students and their parents and ensure that they get the most out of their final year.
