Grade 11 Overview

Often, important decisions must be made with regard to subject choice in Grade 11. Many tertiary institutions place great emphasis on Grade 11 year end results when selecting prospective students.

It is vital that students maintain confidence and concentration to ensure that subjects such as Mathematics and Physical Sciences can be mastered. Abbotts College ensures that you are able to do this.

Emphasis is placed on career guidance and the students are given the opportunity to sample careers of their choice during off-campus “Work experience or job shadow” sessions .

Attention is also given to developing good study habits and motivation as it is these skills that will be essential to ensure that your Matric results are of the highest standards to help you gain entrance to tertiary institutions.

Four Parent-Teacher meetings are held during the year – one each term. These give parents and/or guardians the opportunity to discuss their child’s individual results with the various subject teachers in focused one-on-one discussions.

The students attend an adventure camp which focuses on teamwork, leadership and personal growth. Fun is an integral part of the activities. These camps are run by professional companies to ensure that the students get as much out of them as possible.

The year ends with an official Awards Function which celebrates the hard work and achievements of the students.
