On Friday 13th January the Year 11 pupils gathered together to receive their practice exam results. The exams were sat before the Christmas holidays in December and year 11 had been waiting eagerly to see how they had done. They gathered in the social court and their exam results were dispersed as they will be in August, with pupils in their form groups and the results were collated and presented in an official envelope.
Once the results were received the pupils had the opportunity to discuss them with their peers as well as talking to representatives that had joined them from different institutions such as Coleg Cambria, St Richard Gwyn High School, Chester Catholic High and The Maelor School Penley. They could see if what they had achieved would be enough to get onto any courses that they wanted to take, as well as giving them a valuable insight as to what they might need to do if they hadn’t got the required grades.
“The morning was very successful with a number of pupils clearly being very happy with how they are progressing and in other cases pupils had a real awakening as to what they need to do if their actual GCSE results in the summer are to be a success”
– Mr Lambert, Pastoral Leader of Learning for Year 11
Thank you to all who helped make Mock Results day possible. This day gave our Year 11 pupils an indication of what to expect when they receive their final GCSE results this summer. Come on Year 11, make your last months here at St. Joseph’s count towards a brilliant future!
