Information and Useful Documents for Year 11 Students and Parents/Carers

Our Year 11 students are now in their final year at The Avon Valley School and with this comes the pressures of exams, coursework, post-16 options along with the pressures of being a teenager. To support our students and their parents/carers in this vital year, we recently held a presentation evening for both parents/carers and students in our theatre.

All were warmly invited to hear the following key messages:

• A timeline of key events and dates within the academic year

• Revision and exam technique

• Key information regarding maths, English and science

• How parents can best support their child

• Post-16 options


Useful documents include:
