Welcome

 

Before we start, here’s our context: 

  • Year 11 students are about to embark on their external exams for GCSE, BTEC and Cambridge National courses. These exams have an obvious purpose in that they are important qualifications which are necessary for further education and employment.
  • Year 10 students are soon sitting internal exams which will closely resemble the GCSE exams process. These exams will provide students with meaningful feedback on their learning and show them how you can improve, whilst also providing a valuable exam experience in preparation for external exams next year.

Keynote presentation details:

We are pleased to be able to have a guest speaker, Lee Parker, at this event. Lee is the Founder of Cambridge Academic Performance and over the past eleven years he has built up considerable expertise working within the NHS and within educational settings. In doing this, Lee noticed a gap in the support offered to students which could be filled by offering a fusion of academic techniques and personal development strategies therefore he works collaboratively with students, their parents and other professionals to help each student fulfil their potential and succeed in their goals. Lee works with students at all levels, from primary school to PhD and postdocs.
