Copleston Chronicle First half of Spring Term 2013 — Issue 27
Congratulations to our students who have been successful in the GCSE Mathematics exam taken in November 2012. 74% of the whole year group achieved a C grade from this examination which is a massive achievement at this stage. We have regrouped our students after the results in January to enable them to maximise the opportunities available to them in the summer exams. Our sixth form students in Year 12 sat their first module in the January 2013 series. We also had our Year 13 students who sat new modules during this series and some were also resitting modules taken previously. This year we offered a number of revision sessions for these students, such as the Christmas holiday revision, revision session on the professional day at the start of this term, and 3 hour after school sessions for both the Year 12 and Year 13 students. The results will be in school in early March and we hope for some good news then. Lunchtime revision for our A level students will resume after the March results. Revision sessions for Year 11 will resume in the summer term after the Easter holidays. The UK Intermediate Maths Challenge for years 9, 10 and 11 is about to take place, with students competing against the best Mathematicians around the country. We wish them every success and look forward to their results later this term. There is also a Year 10 team challenge supported by the Further Maths Programme and we wish our students good luck in this event. The next residential weekend will be from 22 March 2013 to 24 March 2013 when we will be offering some additional revision sessions for students at the higher level, as well as for students sitting the Level 2 Further Mathematics qualification. We look forward to working with our students then.
