Letter from Head of Year

Welcome to Year 11, the most significant year of your son’s school journey. As you are very well aware Year 11 is the final year of all GCSE courses for your child, with this year group being the first linear cohort who will sit all exams at the end of Year 11. With all GCSE’s being sat between May and June this year, it is crucially significant that all students come back to school after the summer break ready to concentrate fully on their studies and become increasingly focused on their education, development and attitude. A positive and enthusiastic start from the very onset of this academic year is extremely essential.

It is always through, you, our supportive parents and the school working closely together to ensure that we endorse a positive ethos; and by showing our young people that through hard work and commitment they can realise their full potential so that they will continue to thrive. The hard work MUST begin now, at the very beginning. I ask parents for your support in ensuring that students arrive at school with a positive attitude and ready to learn. I have made it very clear to all pupils, through assemblies, parental meetings, targeted meetings, etc. that it is their responsibility to be organised and prepared for every lesson. This involves having the suitable equipment, finishing all coursework/controlled assessments, being in the right frame of mind to concentrate throughout every lesson and willing to attend after school revision and catch up sessions. At St Aloysius we keenly support pupils to challenge themselves to improve, take part in school activities and to build on previous achievements and successes. I would like to thank you in advance for your continued help and support in ensuring that this continues. Your support in checking your child’s planner, ensuring correct uniform is worn and that your child attends school punctually and regularly is crucial. Being in Year 11 does not mean that students have to now forget about signing their planners, worrying about whether their shirts are tucked in or not or literally stop following school rules that they have been used to since Year 7. If anything the rules, regulations and sanctions get much tougher in Year 11. The drive, the focus and constant monitoring is more frequent and very much targeted for certain students. If we all get this right then there is nothing stopping the heights that this year group can reach!

Your son would have now already received some of his GCSE results; particularly English Literature if he wrote the exam and Science, if he wrote that exam as well. Congratulations to those who achieved their target grades and harder work and commitment to those who did not. As well as working towards achieving future GCSE results your child will also need to think about their next steps in education after Year 11. Throughout the year there will be a number of career opportunities such as ‘Revision and study skills Day’, ‘Presenting Yourself day’ and taster days to the IC6 Sixth Form, to include open Evenings. Our brand new 6th Form building is now fully operational and our students will be among the first to enjoy the benefits of this brand new building. I would highly recommend the school sixth form to all students in Year 11 moving into Year 12. I am also planning a few new events that I would like included for the Year 11 cohort but these are pending the First term results and the co-operation, commitment and positivity that our staff receive from the students themselves. Parents and students will be informed in due course. Furthermore, please look out for the revised school year plan [on the school website] where diarised events for Year 11 will be listed and make a note of these important dates. I would like to give you advance notice of an impending Year 11 Information Evening that I plan on having which will be in late September [date yet to be confirmed.]

Finally, I feel privileged to lead this amazing year group. They are a truly talented group of young people who have the potential to do fantastically well this academic year [and I sincerely mean every one of them] and achieve excellent GCSE qualifications. I am very optimistic about the year ahead and look forward to celebrating and reporting on the success of the year group in September.

Mrs F. Sogojeva

Head of Year 11
