Year 11

As a Head of Year, leading a team of Tutors and Year Team Assistants, we aim to teach our students to take responsibility. We encourage our students to develop a strong moral code and make informed judgements about what is right and wrong. Under our WE CARE ethos, we actively encourage respect and good behaviour and promote the importance of caring for others. Students are expected to play their part in our community and take pride in their own and other students’ achievements.

Students are made to feel welcome and safe and know that their problems are listened to and dealt with. They are taught the benefits of a healthy lifestyle through a series of assemblies, tutor group sessions and a PSHE programme, which helps students to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to live confident, healthy, independent lives, achieve well and contribute to society.

Routines are critical and we seek to promote excellence in all aspects of school life, including having high aspirations, excellent attendance and punctuality, and becoming resilient.

As a Head of Year, my team and I also recognise the importance of open communication between staff, students and parent/carers and are always ready to listen.

Welcome to Year 11 - Mr G Edwards

Firstly, congratulations to many of you on receiving your first set of GCSE results, I hope you did yourselves proud and achieved your targets.

However, that was just the beginning! Year 11 is even more important with the remaining GCSE/BTEC exams only 2 terms away. Time will fly!

Make sure that you are in the best position to do well – attend school and on lessons on time and be ready to learn! Be organised, use Show My Homework and make sure you record details of all assessments and examinations accurately. Set up revision timetables and ask for support from any staff in areas you are struggling in. Most important of all – be ready for challenges – be resilient!

With hard work must come some relaxation. It is important that you have other activities to balance your time. Enjoy some enrichment activities - seek to build up activities which can go on your CV – what will you talk about at interviews?

Year 11 is very special as it marks the end of KS4. There will be a formal Graduation Assembly in our final term as well as a Leavers’ Assembly and, of course, I know you are all looking forward to the Prom. In addition, there is plenty of opportunity to accept responsibility and get involved on the Prom Committee and by helping to put together our Yearbook full of memories of your time at Hatch End High School.

All the Year 11 tutors and Year Team wish you every success this year. Enjoy it and work hard.

Head of Year: Mr G Edwards
