Year 11 - Period 6 - Please see the attached Time Table

The Period 6 timetable is in operation from September and students will be invited to attend their session until 4pm.

Each period is specifically designed to address knowledge gaps for small intervention groups and students will be informed by letter which subject areas and skills sessions they are expected to attend.

To identify which options subjects are in which section (W,X,Y,Z), the class code on students timetable matches each options block, eg: 11x Art.
