Kingswood Secondary Academy

Year 10 & 11 Parent Information Evening

As part of our efforts to ensure the best possible outcomes for students in Years 10 & 11 we are holding these two separate events on the evening of Tuesday 8th October. The Year 11 event starts at 5pm and the Year 10 event at 6.30pm. 

Please take careful note that the date of these events is Tuesday 8th October. Due to an administrative error the letters were sent out to the wrong year groups and as a result of this we’ve changed the date to the 8th October so that parents have sufficient notice. Please accept our apologies for any confusion caused.

At the Year 10 event we will be covering topics such as:

  • The curriculum that students in Y10 are studying
  • On overview of GCSEs and BTEC qualifications
  • An explanation of Controlled Assessments (what used to be called coursework)
  • How parents can help
  • Managing stress (we were thinking of the students but perhaps for parents too!)
  • An overview of the Sixth Form Application process
  • An opportunity for you to suggest how we could further support you or your child

At the Year 11 event we will be covering topics such as:

  • An overview of the in-school preparations for the November GCSE examinations in English and Mathematics (these are real GCSEs and not mocks)
  • An overview of various events and interventions during the whole of the year
  • An overview of the Sixth Form application process
  • Managing stress (we were thinking of the students but perhaps for parents too!)
  • An opportunity for you to suggest how we could further support you or your child

You should now have received a letter inviting you to the event on the 8th October.  We would be very grateful if you could return the reply slip so that we can make appropriate arrangements for the numbers involved.

If you have any questions then please contact Jon Lawson, Assistant Principal.
