Year 11 Countdown to Success
On Thursday 18th January, Year 11 students from The Marches School and Sir John Talbot’s School took part in a Countdown to Success Day in preparation for their GCSE exams in the summer.
Students took part in a number of workshops which included: ‘Resilience and Stress Management’, ‘Get Revising’ and a workshop hosted by revision guru Karim Al-Abbas from Enlighten Education. Karim shared ways to improve learning and memory skills which will lead to increased self-confidence and self-esteem. Students that have worked with Karim in previous years have been empowered to start using the techniques immediately and take ownership of the way they learn.
Mrs Pearson, Associate Headteacher, commented, “The day has gone really well here with students learning about relaxation, resilience and a host of revision strategies with our guest speaker. Feedback has been very positive and our students were also great hosts to the Year 11 students from Sir John Talbot’s who joined us for the day.”
