Year 11s began the countdown to their GCSE exams with their Mock Exam Result presentation last week. There are now 64 school days until the first written exams; 64 days to learn, prepare and revise.
The excitement, anticipation and, in some cases trepidation were evident as Year 11s gathered in the Hall. Mr Hume and Mr Berry both gave brief presentations before the countdown began. Then, the whole of Year 11 opened their envelopes containing their mock results simultaneously. There were shrieks of delight, sighs of relief and satisfaction and groans of disappointment as the results sank in. 53 students gained £20 each for achieving eight or more of their targets and 94 for four or more of their targets.
