Mr Owen’s Blog this week:
“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm” – Ralf Waldo Emerson
In a few weeks’ time our Year 11 students will be sitting their final GCSE exams. They have worked hard on two rounds of mocks, but this time it’s for real.
I can’t emphasise the need to revise enough at this stage, at home as well as at the Academy.
It’s time to stop planning, worrying and distracting and get revising. Mr Green has summed it up on a leaflet that will be handed out to all Year 11 parents at parents evening this week: “Right now you need to be revising and sleeping.”
Exam preparation is all about having the right mindset – don’t panic, keep positive and keep going. You haven’t got time to talk yourself into failing, you need to revise and practise so that you go into your exams as prepared as you can be.
Year 10 Core Science Students will have received a booklet about revision, setting out 30 Days to Make a Difference! Dr Martin has outlined strategies for students to make the most out of their run up to their exams in May. See the booklet here:

See the Easter Holiday Revision Timetable on the Manchester Health Academy website here.
There is a new edition of the Careers Newsletter out now! This edition has all sorts of useful information about apprenticeships. There are also useful links about planning your future on the Careers page of the Manchester Health Academy website, whether you are thinking of higher education, work experience or jobs next.
