Executive Principal’s Blog – 27.5.22: ‘Keys to Success’
As we draw to the close of yet another very busy half term here at BMS I would like to thank all the hard-working staff for their support with the GCSE and A level exams, coursework deadlines, marking and moderation and submission of work samples to the many and varied examination boards. Their hard work and commitment is key to the ongoing success of students at our school.
I would also like to congratulate our hard-working Year 11 students for starting their written GCSE examinations so well. The Personalised Timetable to Maximise Achievement given to all Year 11 and 13 students earlier this term is clearly having big impact; many students are saying that the final two-hour additional revision sessions held just before they enter the examination hall are proving very useful indeed – giving them the edge in their exams.
This is just one of the many smart strategies that we are operating at the school to ensure that each and every student has the best chance of success and can truly achieve their potential. As parents and carers do continue to do all you can to encourage and support your children to achieve their very best over the next two months. On both Saturdays at the start and end of this half term holiday we are holding the next two Study Saturdays for Year 11s in the LRC and Year 13s in the Sixth Form Study Centre. Don’t miss out!
In addition a few staff are offering specific revision classes on Monday and Tuesday next week – your children will have been provided with the details of these additional sessions where necessary.
As parents and carers the support and encouragement that you provide for your children, and indeed our school community, is also key. On that note I would like to thank all the parents and carers who have completed the online questionnaire on ParentView. So far over 125 parents have taken the time to share their views of the school.
