Extended Day Proposal at Sewell Park Academy for year 10 and 11
Sewell Park Academy are consulting with parents and students regarding extending the statutory school day for years 10 and 11 from 5th September 2017 until 16.15 on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. It will become compulsory for all year 10 and 11 students to attend until this time.
Students will attend independent learning sessions with members of staff to support independent study, revision and exam preparation for GCSEs. Students can also attend subject specific sessions to provide specialised support with coursework, revision, key concepts and exam practice. These sessions will not be run as traditional lessons at the Academy but as more personalised learning opportunities working specifically on homework, revision and exam techniques. Year 10 will have the opportunity to take part in extra sessions involving Sport, Music and other Enrichment opportunities.
All students will take the Certificate in Financial Education equivalent to a GCSE which provides essential life skills and an additional qualification to support College and 6th Form applications, 85% of our current year 11 students have gained a C grade or above in this subject.
