Year Nine Exam Arrangements 2015

Dear Parents

Please note the timings of two examinations which take place in the first week back after Easter.  The main Year 9 examination series this year will follow in the week beginning 29th June, after students have been studying their GCSE options for 4 weeks.  Our intention is to use this examination week to check students have made a positive start on their GCSE subjects.  I will write to you closer to the time with details of the timetable.

Here are the timings of examinations just after Easter:

English Exam (Used to inform the setting of students in their GCSE sets)  9.00am-11.00am Tuesday 21st April in the main hall.

Mathematics – Statistics mock examination  9.00am-11.00am  Wednesday 22nd April in the main hall

Otherwise, Year 9 lessons are as normal after Easter.

We will be designing the “Year 9 into 10” curriculum during April based on option choice information we’ve gathered from students.  From half term (Monday 1st June), students will commence their GCSE subjects and will have a new timetable.

It is important that students bring the correct equipment to all examinations:

  • 2 pens
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Rubber
  • Calculator

Thank you for your support and please contact me at the school if you have any queries.

Yours sincerely

 Craig Burnett (Assistant Head)
