Student Support: Year 11
Year 11 is a year of opportunity at RFSS. Students are expected to take greater responsibility for their learning. They are encouraged to reflect on all aspects of their learning, seek and respond to feedback, and work closely with subject teachers to address gaps in knowledge and skills. A variety of target-setting days and next-step evenings provide students, parents and carers with support and advice on how to effectively prepare for their GCSE examinations.
The Personal Development Programme supports students with effective strategies to develop resilience, and the self-belief needed to achieve their potential. This includes the development of personalised plans for students next steps and opportunities to develop life-skills to support their journey to adulthood. All students have the opportunity to take part in our sixth-form taster days, which provide an insight into a variety of post-sixteen courses and enable students to make an informed choice about their next steps.
Year 11 is also a year of celebration of all that has been achieved at RFSS, culminating in the end of year prom, held in July. This event is a fantastic opportunity to share great memories and look to the future.
