fter a fortnight of refinement and anticipation, on Monday 18th

November, Year 11

students experienced a Mock Results Evening. The purpose of this event was to recreate the sense of anticipation and excitement that students feel in the summer when they collect their real GCSE results.

The event was exceptionally well supported by parents, with 95% of all Year 11 students and parents in attendance. Parents and students explored case studies of previous students’ progress journeys from this point in the academic year and they listened to three former AGFS students talk about how the Mock Results Evening in 2018 inspired and motivated them. Parents participated in a practical workshop to understand how to support their child through Quizlet, MyMaths and Tassomai before students collected their envelope of results.

Year 11 are to be congratulated on their mature and conscientious approach throughout this term as well as on their resolve and determination to do as well as they can. They are a credit to our school and are set to do incredibly well in summer 2020.


he new academic year started with an exciting range of activities for our Year 11 students; with an opportunity to gain an insight into the working world during a week of Work Experience, a trip to

Ravensbourne Academy for a Post-16 Progression Fair and AGFS’s first Careers Fair of this year – all of this within the first four weeks of term!

For our ambitious Year 11 students, with Sixth Form Open Days and the application process for a Sixth Form place for September 2020 just around the corner, it was only fitting that AGFS opened their doors on Monday 30th September to invite representatives from The Royal Borough of Greenwich and Bexley Borough including: Townley Grammar School, Bexley Grammar School, Beths Grammar School, Woolwich Poly, Shooters Hill Sixth Form College, Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy, Colfe’s School , Christ the King Sixth Form, Thomas Tallis School and Eltham Hill School to name just a few, to join us for the first Careers Fair event of this academic year.

This was a fantastic and exciting opportunity for our young people in Year 11, to speak directly to Heads of Sixth Forms and their representatives regarding their Post-16 Progression. Scholars could also gain valuable, informative information on the courses available, as well as the specific GCSE entry requirements – but, maybe, most of all, what Sixth Form is really like from some of our cohort of returning AGFS students, who are now in Year 13 and students who have just commenced their A Levels in Year 12.

Along with all students in Year 11 receiving a 1-1 or small group careers meeting, with our school careers lead, to discuss their career journey – it has been a very busy first term for our students!
