WEEK 24 - Friday 18 March 2022

Hello and welcome to the Year 11 Blog.

This week I had the opportunity to attend a Secondary National Conference titled ‘Hope in Action’: just hoping is not enough. As I sat and listened to a panel of educational professionals from across the country, one thing was the same no matter which part of the country they came from, ‘Hoping is not going to be enough’, students must make the most of the time and opportunities they have left.

With just 59 days left before the first GCSE Exam (much less, if we’re only counting school days), just hoping ‘everything will be alright’ is not going to be enough and it is our responsibility as teachers, parents and carers to ensure the young people are ready. With that in mind, I ask you the question; is your child doing enough?

As the Head of Year 11 and a member of the Hessle High School community I am just one of many members of staff who continue to explain to our young people that it isn't too late! Hard work and dedication from this point forward will see them reap the rewards they deserve, but it isn't going to be easy.

We are here to support both students and you as parents and carers, so if you have any questions or you need clarification please do not hesitate to contact me.

Revision sessions continue to be available each night after school and are available to all students, please encourage your child to attend these sessions as part of their revision schedule. There will be an opportunity for parents and carers of Year 11 to attend an information evening on Thursday 24 March where you will have the chance to speak to Heads of Departments and gather key information before we enter the exam period. I hope to see you all there (more information to follow).

I would like to thank you for all your continued support and encouragement.  The school, and most importantly, your child does appreciate it.

Thank you


Mr Julian

Head of Year 11

Mrs Lacey

Assistant Head of Year 11
