KS4 Revision and Exam Preparation

Revision WorkspaceWith the exams beginning on 9th May, there are now 6 WEEKS left to prepare.

Here are a number of useful documents to help you organise your time to maximise your focus and effort in the build up.

The biggest advice you can receive is START NOW!  Do not wait, as the longer the wait, the more you are putting off.  Get a space organised with all the resources you need, plan your time and challenge yourself to complete past papers and practice specific exam questions.

If you feel you need some support from school, please contact your tutor, your subject teachers or your Head of House.  All the staff are here to help and wish you all the best.

RED NOSE DAY – Friday 24th March

Screen Shot 2017-03-21 at 08.31.15Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day is a day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money at home, school and work.

There’s a fantastic night of TV on the BBC, with comedy and entertainment to inspire the nation to give generously.

Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and Africa.

On Friday 24th March, the school will be collecting a £1 donation to the charity from students who would like to wear a red nose during the day or make their face “funny for money”.  This might include funny hair, facepaint or glasses.

The school uniform is as normal throughout the day.  Full school uniform details are HERE.

Newport Half Marathon 2017

WML_1186_10.JPG.galleryA number of staff from St Julian’s School took part in the Newport Half Marathon on Sunday 5th March 2017.

Also, more than 150 year 10 students volunteered, worked hard marshalling and supporting St David’s Hospice Care from 7 am. We received many positive comments from St David’s and Newport residents:-

“ When many of them set out at 7:30 it would have still been raining and very cold but they brought the sunshine with them and made everyone smile. They are an absolute credit to the school and their community and I wish them all the best in their baccalaureate, great bunch of kids that clapped and cheered every single runner. “

“The students were fantastic! We were blown away by their enthusiasm and helpfulness.”

We’re very proud of all the staff, students and support from the local community.  It was a very proud day for St Julian’s!
