Year 11 subject information 

We want to create one central place, with all the information needed to know what to expect in this important year.  Here you will find that each subject has prepared resources which will outline:

  • how their subject is examined
  • where to go for any additional revision resources
  • clarity on any examination changes for summer 2021

Your mock examinations are scheduled to start on Friday 11 December. They will take place the final week of Term 2 and the first week back in Term 3. We will share your timetables with you through EduLink.  These mock exams are an important opportunity to show how well you are working in each of your subjects. They also help inform the teachers on areas that need improvement before the summer. 

It is vital that you remain physically and mentally strong through this year and particularly around examination periods.  To help you with this, there is a Survivors’ guide to study on our college website, which you can download and read through.

We also have the college’s referral form for any wellbeing concerns that need additional support from your pastoral team.
