Our school assembly theme this week will focus on raising aspiration and is led by Mr J Cain, Deputy Headteacher. As we delve into the week, we continue to inspire, motivate, and empower all of our pupils on their educational journey.
Mr J Cain will be encouraging pupils throughout the week to think both short-term and long-term about their aspirations, highlighting that it’s never too early to start planning the future! The assembly will highlight the importance of setting academic goals and for pupils to check what grades are needed to access the courses they are passionate about pursuing.
Feedback is invaluable for growth and we are teaching our pupils how to use their assessment results as a powerful tool for progress. Mr Cain will demonstrate to pupils within these assemblies, the importance of revision, using assessment feedback and working hard to achieve expected and aspirational grades.
For our KS4 and KS5 pupils, a specific focus is placed on the crucial building blocks needed for academic growth: the significance of hard work, attending school and paying full attention in lessons and preparing for mock examinations, ahead of final GCSE exams next Summer. We’ve announced the dates for mock examinations and encourage pupils to get organised and start planning revision timetables at home. Pupils are being reminded of our ‘Know, Do, Review’ system that is in place at our school – a proven method for effective learning.
The key message that Mr. J Cain, Deputy Headteacher is sharing with pupils is: “Embrace challenges, for they are the stepping stones to your aspirations. With tenacity as your guide, you have the power to reach greater heights than you ever imagined. Your future is bright, and it starts with the choices you make today.”
We would like to remind all pupils, parents and carers of our upcoming Sixth Form Open Evening taking place on the 9th November. We believe that when pupils join us at Chase Terrace Academy, they are embarking on a seven-year journey to success. We are looking forward showing our Year 11 pupils around our Sixth Form Centre and discussing the broad range of courses we have to offer to support their ambition.
