Rhyddings Revision Advent Calendar

With more mock exams coming up over the next few months for Year 11, as well as assessments for all year groups, here’s a little something to keep you thinking about revision throughout December.

Each day the image will be updated with a new link – it might be to a revision resource from one of your teachers, a link to a blog about how to study, or a video on marginal gains. Who knows? You’ll just have to keep checking back.

Happy studying!

Year 11 Parents Evening

We are inviting all parents/carers to the first Year 11 Parents’ Evening for this academic year. This will be held on Monday 28th November 2016, from 3:45 to 6:15 pm. Please come along and support your son/daughter in the run up to their final exams. You will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and receive advice on how you can best support them at this vital time.

Appointments commence at 3.45 and your child has been given an appointment sheet. It is their responsibility to make appointments. Please check with them over the next few days that they are making appointments. We look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Year 11 Leader

Hyndburn MP Graham Jones was in school last week to present Rhyddings students with the Discovering Democracy Award.

We are one of the first 19 schools to be recognised by the British Youth Council for encouraging pupils to have their say in society – both within the school or through social action projects in the local community.

Mr Jones took a tour of the school and discussed his role as MP with some of the students. He was also joined by Matthew Lord from Burnley College who presented our Student Parliament members with a copy of the mission statement they created as part of some workshops last year.
