Revision Evening Success!

At Cardinal Heenan, our aim is to ensure that all pupils achieve to the very best of their ability. As part of that, we want all pupils to have every opportunity to prepare thoroughly for assessment weeks in school and external examinations. That is why we hosted two revision evenings during the recent half term break, the first for Year 10 and the second for Year 11.

As you can see from the photographs below, both evenings were very well attended. We believe that by working in partnership with parents and carers, we can support our students and help them achieve all that they are capable of, so it was great to see such fantastic support on each night.

Our Year 10 students were given the opportunity to learn lots of new revision techniques and practise them with their parents and carers. The lively sessions used mini whiteboards, anagrams, 6×6 grids and post-it notes to support mind mapping and time management techniques.

The Year 11 evening was more subject specific, with the English, Maths and Science departments all hosting sessions that provided lots of helpful support and guidance for upcoming exams. The evening ended with a time management session, which enabled pupils and parents to start building a revision timetable together.

Feedback from the evening included comments such as, "It was extremely useful, lots of good ideas and the revision packs are helpful", "An excellent presentation from all staff. The commitment from them is apparent and very much appreciated!", "Appreciate all the staff giving up their time - found the evening very helpful", and "Thoroughly enjoyed the evening".

We would like to thank everyone who took part - staff, students, parents and carers - and who helped to make the evenings such a success.

Without doubt, with us all working together, we can help our pupils realise their true potential.
