National Performance Tables

The National Performance Tables were released this week and it was lovely to see FUS’s position at the top of the table confirmed for the key government accountability measure of A*-C in both English and Mathematics GCSEs.

FUS students also performed very well at A Level and again it is very pleasing to see our students results amongst the highest in the county for our A Level and Applied General combined progress scores (progress refers to students achieving better than expected according to their previous results).

Wednesday 25th – Anxiety Workshops

Then on Wednesday, Mrs Lock has arranged for some of our students to undertake Anxiety Workshops to help to support them with the pressures and stresses that they are going to encounter in the run up to their exams. Hopefully the students will also be taught some key coping strategies that they will be able to undertake themselves.
