In-house enrichment: Classroom assistants

posted Jan 8, 2019, 12:52 AM by Unknown user   [ updated Feb 13, 2019, 7:36 AM ]

During an assembly at the beginning of this academic year, the Sixth Form Team spoke to Year 12 and 13 about how important it is to add to their CV/UCAS applications. As a result, all students in Year 12 were timetabled into a classroom to support lower school students with their academic progress. To date, we have over 150 students supporting students across 12 different subjects. Some Year 13’s have volunteered their time to support our pastoral staff within SPACE. Many of the students who receive support from our Sixth Formers have been extremely positive about the rapport they have built with them and how they have benefitted from their support.
Mr F Khan (Head of Year 12)


I had chosen to support in GCSE Business Studies with Year 10’s and it is an amazing experience. I decided to give up one of my study periods to support students who are studying a course which I had successfully completed last year. I believe it is great for me, as it provides me with the relevant experience if teaching is to be my profession in the future. This is also helping to enrich my experience during my time at Holyhead. Whenever I support in lessons, my goal is to help many students in their class, not just with their work but in order to make them learn new content. I know this as many students ask the meaning of words and I tell them to write it down. This educates them to do well in their coursework and GCSE preparation. Overall, I am glad that I am offering my experience to students who will hopefully benefit from it.


I have been supporting Year 11 students in Mathematics lessons since October. At first, I was a bit reluctant to give up my time, but I am glad I have done so now. This experience has taught me patience, communication and confidence in working with people outside of my normal circle. I work with two Year 11 girls with developing their Mathematical skills. I like this experience and look forward to writing about it when I begin to apply for University.

UCAS Information and Qualification Offer - Sept 2019

posted Oct 12, 2018, 12:26 AM by Unknown user   [ updated Oct 11, 2019, 7:22 AM ]


Holyhead is a highly successful Inner Ring 11-18 Academy. The neighbourhood is in the top 10% of deprived areas nationally and 26% of students are entitled to free school meals. There are over 1,300 students on roll including 262 in the Sixth Form, with the vast majority of year 13 students seeking university places. In September 2019 all Year 13 students intending to go to university took up places at their chosen university. The A-level results in the summer of 2019 were 52% A*-B, 84% A*-C and 98% A* - E, of which the academy and community are rightly proud.

Since the release of new specifications and the de-coupling of AS/A Level qualifications until June 2019 Holyhead has chosen to offer the decoupled AS examinations in all reformed A Level subjects apart from Geography and Film Studies. In light of the national trends to move away from offering the AS qualification to all at the end of Year 12, we have chosen to do so from September 2019 with the use of internal examinations in Year 12 to replace the AS exams.

A Level Exam Results

I am very pleased to confirm that yet again we have achieved fantastic A Level results. 

A Level 

We have had another exceptional year for A Levels with our current % A*-B figure of 46% this means that students make progress at a rate equivalent to the top 25% of all Sixth Forms and FE Colleges. 83% of all grades were at least a C grade at A Level. Our BTEC results are also incredibly strong.

In particular, we are pleased that 100% of grades achieved were between A*-E (no grade U's). This is a testament to the great work the team and the hard work of the students in the Sixth Form. 

The vast majority of the students received news that meant they could pursue their chosen University courses next term.
