Schedule of Extra English Revision
In these last weeks leading up to the final GCSE Examinations, a programme of revision is taking place. All tutorials specific to Mr Waugh’s class can be found on this page, and all English department information (Including exhaustive detail about our GCSE Examinations and controlled assessments) can be found on the Edutronic main site.
Priorities for the Winter Term:
1 TUESDAYS 3:40-4:30: Extra English. As indicated in the class survey, most students’ preference is for small group tutorials with your own class teacher. This is the weekly time for this, and a schedule will be drawn up of the focus for these sessions and students who are in need of extra input will be named and required to attend. Others may come at their own discretion.
2 Weekly: Every week a new practice question derived from prior examinations will be posted to this site for students to answer. Every answer posted to your individual blogs will be given a mark and feedback.

This Term’s Text of Focus – Touching the Void
Read in conjunction with a viewing of the respected film this novel allows the students to explore non-fiction writing and enables the canvassing of ideas from the nature of death, through the morality of mountain climbing to the reliability of autobiographical writing.YEAR 11 LEARNING PLAN 2012
We have re-launched our student blogging scheme – the classroom is equipped with brand new iPads and every student has their own blog. The possibilities of this new scheme are enormous – if you’re keen to investigate some of the thinking that goes behind it all can be seen on Mr Waugh’s professional journal.
