Year 11 students from Woodham Academy recently took part in a series of masterclass sessions at the Durham Leadership Centre, Spennymoor.

The sessions focussed on Maths, English and Science, with the overall aim being to maximise student grades in the forthcoming exams. Sessions were all delivered by subject experts, with all having a real focus on examination skills,
techniques and content.

Feedback from the students involved was highly positive, with many feeling it will have a significantly favourable effect on their final grade. Head of Science, Andrew Jenkins, said “getting the students away from any potential distractions within the normal school day was superb.

The students could all focus solely on their science work and help address any areas of concern. All of the students are coming again during half term, which shows their commitment to hard work”
