We have reached that time of year again where our Year 11s are starting their GCSEs. The exams start on Monday 15th May and the teachers have put together a few Good Luck messages for you...
Nothing in life is easy; the bigger the challenge, the greater the reward!
I have been teaching for 15 years and you guys, by far, have been the best Year 11 I have ever worked with. You are funny and clever – always trying to find out who you are and what you believe through some really challenging GCSE courses. September 2017 will be very odd without you. I know, with the right final push with revision, that you will be hugely successful and so ready for the next part of your journey.
To 11G and 11C
I know how hard you’ve worked this year, and how difficult you’ve found getting your heads around the new GCSE, but we’re nearly there! Just remember that you now know EVERYTHING that you need to pass, and you just need to show how intelligent you are when the final dates arrive.
I have been so proud of how much you’ve all grown this year, and how the majority of you have realised how important this year has been.
I wish you all the luck in the world.
This is your time to SHINE! I am proud of what each of you have achieved over the past five years, and wish you the very best of luck with ALL of your upcoming exams. Remember- We are all in this together!
To all Year 11s, especially 11M1, Good luck with your exams. Remember: read the question 3 times, use your highlighters, check your answers and most importantly if you do your best you will make me proud.
To all of Year 11, good luck with the upcoming GCSE exams. Stay focused, prepare well and the exams will look after themselves. One last push then you have an amazing long summer to look forward to!
I wish you all the luck over the coming weeks and just remember “your only limit is you”, do your best that is always enough.

I want to say a huge congratulations to the Year 11 GCSE Drama class that completed their final exam on Wednesday 10th May. Their performances were all fantastic and I am incredibly proud of what they achieved. The students have worked hard planning, rehearsing after school, writing monologues and blocking scenes for the past couple of weeks and the process has not been an easy ride. Their hard work paid off and I believe their final exam performances were all at a high standard. Thank you so much for being a fabulous class to work with and good luck with all of your future exams.
Believe you can and you’re halfway there! Wishing you all the best of luck in your exams!
Year 11: I have many happy memories of you both as pupils and tutees - past and present.
Wishing you every success in your exams and many good times in the years to come,
Good luck Year 11… You are a fantastic year group and I am sure you will get fantastic results… #Bhardwajbelieves
You often get people quoting Yoda at these times. ‘Do or do not, there is no try’ he said, and that’s a great quote for a yearbook. However, with these exams it’s more a case of ‘do as much structured preparation as you can then try your best, don’t leave any questions blank’. It’s all about the try!
That’s not very Yoda but it’s still Jedi advice. Here’s some more: believe in yourselves, like we believe in you.
Good luck Year 11, all your hard work will pay off and you will be amazing.

Just keep running!
Best of luck on Monday for the French GCSE papers – can’t quite believe it’s come round so quick! I’m so proud of you all…
‘Animus est ad astra’
Wishing all of year 11 the very best in the future. I
hope you all fall in love with food and cooking and that it brings you both
health and happiness.
Good luck with all your exams Year 11! You have been a brilliant year group and I am looking forward to seeing how well you are all going to do. I will really miss teaching my 11X and 11W History classes; you have all made this two year journey to the exams very enjoyable and I now just want you to remember that you have prepared for this moment, have worked so hard and couldn’t be more ready. Each time you enter an exam, take a deep breath and go for it – I look forward to seeing you all celebrating at your prom.
