Our RWS10 updates provide key dates for your diary, including some strategies to support your son in preparing for assessments. You will also find a revision topic booklet that has the content from Year 9 and 10 for the subjects your son studies. Finally there is a resource links document which has the log in details for the PiXL Apps we use with our RWS11 students.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact myself on coa@rws.uk.net or Mr Morgan (jmo@rws.uk.net) at the School.

Kind regards,

Mr Oppong, Associate Assistant Headteacher



When your son enters Year 11 at Ravens Wood, there will be only 30 school weeks until the first of the GCSE exams. With new specifications and a new grading system (1-9) in many subjects, along with heavier content demands and tougher assessments, we know that every minute of every lesson will count for our Year 11 cohort. The bar has been raised; we must now meet these new challenges and ensure that students are equipped to achieve highly in the summer exams.

As such, I am delighted to set out our ‘RWS11’ offer, which outlines the contact details of key members of staff; lists important dates throughout the year; and explains a number of supportive provisions that we will be running for all Year 11 students. This information will be updated ahead of each new Year 11 cohort.

In addition, our fortnightly RWS11 newsletters to all Year 11 parents/carers can be viewed below. 

Finally, if you have any questions about your son in Year 11, please contact Mr Davis, Head of Year 11, in the first instance (smd@rws.uk.net).

Mr Leitch, Deputy Headteacher
