13th February 2015

On the 13th February the GCSE P.E year 11 cohort travelled to the Emmanuel Centre in Westminster to attend the annual  Edexcel revision conference run by Keynote.

After seeing the sights of the nation’s capital, the students got to work learning how to improve their practical performance and analysis of performance.  They also worked on how move their grade to the next level in the theory exam through model responses and key insights. 

The students were able to use the experience of the following through the day;

  • David Pryce: experienced teacher, lecturer and senior examiner with national and international background in PE examinations.
  • Rachel O’Sullivan: experienced Edexcel teacher and  Senior Lecturer in PE and Sport.
  • Olympic gymnast, ‘Sporting Champion’ and media commentator.

The conference ended with interschool quiz to recap the day.  Our very own Charlie Solomons and Rhys Peploe represented the Aylesbury Vale Academy gaining full marks.  The days was real success with students saying that ‘felt more confident and prepared’ for their final exam in May.
