We will be holding internal examinations for Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 students starting 17th June 2019.
During two weeks, students will have end of year assessments in most of their subjects. This is an opportunity for them to demonstrate their learning over the last academic year.
It is vital that students acquire good revision skills from an early age and become accustomed to having linear style exams. We will be supporting them at school by giving advice on how to study and also providing revision checklists and materials.
It is important for your child to begin their revision as soon as possible for these important exams. Please support us by enabling good study routines at home.
In order to help your child to be fully prepared for each assessment, now would be a good time to check that they have all the equipment that they need.
Please ensure that they have at least two black pens, two pencils, a ruler, pencil sharpener, eraser, compasses, calculator and a protractor.
There is no need for your child to be worried but please do contact their progress tutor or subject teacher if they or you are particularly concerned.
Year 7, 8, and 9 exams will take place in lessons. Year 10 have been sent their exam timetables, will sit their exams in the Sports Hall, which will mirror actual GCSEs.
