Saturday maths lessons


Dear Parent / Carer,

Saturday maths lessons: dates for your diaries!

We are intending to run additional maths booster sessions with our intervention teacher, Mr Kelly, on the two Saturdays leading up to the Year 11 mock maths exams.

These classes will be open to all students and there will be three groups running on each Saturday, differentiated by ability and target grades. There will be a maximum of 30 places in each group, so students will be asked to sign up on a “first come, first served” basis to the group that they feel best fits their level. 


8.45 to 10.30

10.35 to 12.20

12.25 to 2.10

Saturday 26th November 2016

All classes will take place in room MA7 in the maths block.

Students who wish to sign up may do so during breaktimes and lunchtimes from Tuesday 8th November. Sign-up sheets will be available in room MA1 (maths computer suite).

Please rest assured that further “open invite” Saturday morning maths classes will run later in the year for any students who are unable to secure a “first come, first served” place on this particular occasion.

Yours sincerely,

Mr J. Mallett

Deputy Headteacher (Curriculum)
