Pupils taking public examinations should ensure that they are available to sit an exam between 13th May and 26th June 2019 inclusive. Exams can be rescheduled should sustained national or local disruption arise during the Summer 2019 examination series. If disruption occurs, the GCSE and/or GCE (A Level) examinations would be postponed and rescheduled for another date in that period.
Individual timetables will be circulated to students before February half term. Finalised timetabled will be published before Easter 2019.
Lower School Exam 2019
Lower School exams will be set during lesson time in most subjects. They are designed to help pupils practise revising for exams in a range of subjects completed close together, since this is what pupils must do for GCSE. Pupils should consult their subject teachers for details of what to revise. They will receive a letter about their exams in the run up to their exam period. Please study the letter with your child and encourage them to revise hard.
Your child’s teachers will take into account your child’s exam performance when reporting overall attainment at the end of the year. Exam performance also helps teachers monitor your child’s progress in terms of achieving their target grades.
Whilst it is important to recognize pupil achievement in exams, please stress to your child that what matters more than their exam scores is that they understand what to do next to keep improving in each subject. Pupils therefore need to pay great attention to, and act on, Learning Targets whenever teachers set these.
