Students will be prepared for all exams very thoroughly. The exams will help us make decisions about the curriculum offer for each pupil next year including setting and potentially options.
In Key Stage 3 we help prepare the students for public exams by giving them the opportunity to sit exams in the same way that GCSEs are conducted. This helps students manage the stress better when they are older. Key Stage 3 students also have GL Assessments. These tests are computer based and are benchmarked against pupils nationwide. This enables us to see how much progress each pupil is making in comparison to their peers across the country.
In Key Stage 4 we prepare the students for public exams by giving them exams in Maths, English and Science. All other subjects will be assessed during lesson time in exam conditions.
