Keeping ahead in
All years at Richmond Park Academy are important but it is Year 11 where all of that learning gets consolidated and then tested. This Year 11 page is a resource page to help students to deliver their best results. It includes details on our two pre- public exam sessions, our extended learning plan, reading lists and revision guides. If students take advantage of the help and advice on offer they will have the very best chance of securing the results they deserve in August.

Extended learning and targeted interventions
Extended learning and targeted interventions take place for our students throughout their school life as we support their ongoing learning. In Year 11 students have a bespoke programme of activities which include intervention during tutor time, subject-specific intervention during P7 (3pm - 4pm) on a weekly basis plus Saturday School and Holiday Masterclasses. The full programme is shown to the left. Click to download as a PDF. Details on the holiday masterclasses will be shared in due course.
Pre Public Exams (PPEs)
We have two series of PPEs, one in November and the other in February. They should be treated like the real GCSEs. Students should revise for them and use the results to help identify areas for improvement. In some cases, the results of the PPEs will impact on whether a student is entered for a Higher or Foundation GCSE paper. It is important that students give them their full attention; it will definitely make their GCSE experience easier! The full timetable for the first PPEs is shown to the left.
