End of Year Exams 2017

16th May 2017

 

Dear Parent,

During the week of 19th to 23rd June, students in Year 7-10 will be sitting end of year exams. The majority of the exams/assessments will take place during student’s regular lesson time, although year 7, 8 & 9 will also have one exam in the main Sports Hall so that they can experience the formal examination setting that we use with years 10, 11, 12 & 13. Students will receive their exam timetables during tutor time over the next few days.

Sports Hall Exams

Thursday 22nd June Period 1 & 2 Year 7 English
  Period 3 & 4 Year 9 Maths
  Period 5 & 6 Year 8 English

Whilst the exams are set by the school (internal exams), the results are important as they will be used to monitor progress, identify student strengths, areas for improvement and confirm option choices for students in Year 9. In subject areas where students have recently sat or will be sitting formal external exams or controlled assessments (Year 10), students may not have exams for these subjects during this period.

Students will be informed of the importance of these exams during tutor period and advised by their teachers which areas to revise. We welcome your support in encouraging students to revise and prepare appropriately for these exams.

Yours faithfully

 

Philip Ashton
Assistant Principal
