Thought for the week

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

How true. I’m hoping that my hard-working Y11 students make their own luck when they take their GCSE Mathematics exams this week.

I had forgotten that I had written this post. Given what happened since I drafted it, it no longer seems entirely appropriate, so an update is in order.

Like many schools, mine faced an impossibly difficult decision when changes were announced shortly before the November exam. The result is that my hard-working Y11 students are now taking mock exams this week – but have continued to work just as hard as if it was the real thing.

Best of luck to them – and to all the students who are still taking their GCSE Mathematics exams this week.
