The Countdown towards the Christmas Exams Begins!
Examination timetables were recently distributed to all pupils in preparation for the upcoming Christmas examinations. These take place from Tuesday 1st December to Thursday 3rd December 2015. The examinations are very important as the results will be used to show the progress of each student in a report that parents will receive in early January.
Year 8 to 10 students will receive a progress report but Year 11 to Year 14 students will receive a written report where teachers will identify areas where each individual student can make improvements so that they can be sure to achieve their highest possible examination results.
It is important that parents are aware of the importance of these exams and support students fully in their preparation and revision for the exams. Special revision guides have also been given out to every Key Stage 3 student and colour copies can be downloaded here:
