Pupils in Year 11 have returned to School with maturity and a clear determination to succeed. This is an important year as we work towards the GCSE examinations in the Summer of 2016. Our experienced team of tutors will work hard to support pupils and ensure they continue to make excellent progress. A range of opportunities have been organised to help pupils to make choices for their future in terms of careers and Further Education.

Tutor Time and Discovery Days
All pupils have one lesson a week with their tutor (Wednesday Period 3). In Year 11, Tutor Time and the 3 discovery days are used for :
The intervention programme is designed to highlight areas or subjects where pupils need to develop their skills, then place them in small groups where they will receive additional support from senior staff and Faculty Leaders. Pupils will be allocated to Intervention Groups based on current academic data and discussions with teaching staff.
Intervention Groups will primarily focus on English, Maths and Science. Other subjects will be added after the Mock Examinations.
Post 16 Careers Guidance
Our programme of specific Post 16 Information, advice and guidance (IAG) will continue in Year 11. All pupils will attend an individual careers interview to discuss their post 16 pathways and complete applications forms. Visits and taster sessions have been arranged for the Autumn Term to enable pupils to experience a range of both academic and vocational courses. Pupils will also have the opportunity to attend workshops delivered by outside providers on Apprenticeships and other training options.
Form Tutors will continue to support pupils and ensure that pupils are accessing the full range of support available, ensure that application forms have been completed and write references.
Pupils in Year 11 have the opportunity to become School Prefects. Nominations from staff are requested in the Autumn Term and a Panel of Senior Staff select pupils who they feel demonstrate the School ethos of Care, Share, Believe, Achieve.
Pupil Voice is very important at Chilwell School. It is an opportunity for pupils to give their views and opinions regarding school life. In recent years feedback from Pupil Voice has helped design our new school uniform, change the menu in the canteen and expand the offer in Activities Week.
Each Tutor Group in Year 11 will elect 2 representatives who will attend Year Council Meeting with the Year Leader, these pupils will be responsible for expressing the views of the pupils in their Tutor Group and giving feedback following the meeting.
