Year 11 – Skills for success

Year 11 is a very important year for you. It marks the end of your time at secondary school, and you will finally sit your (much anticipated!) GCSE exams. It’s also a time of big decisions, as you decide what Level 3 qualifications you’ll take, and where you’ll choose to study them.

Take the time to really engage with the content on these pages as we give you advice and tips on sitting your GCSE’s, introduce your options at further education (FE) level, and encourage you to think about life in higher education (HE).
