Key Stage 3 End of Year Exams

Dear Parents/Carers

Key Stage 3 End of Year Exams

I am writing to inform you of arrangements for end of year exams in Years 7, 8 and 9.
End of year examinations are important for a number of reasons:

  1. They allow pupils to demonstrate what they have learnt and gives them the opportunity to reach target grades
  2. They are an important opportunity for the boys to experience terminal examinations and revision which will benefit them when they undertake public examinations from Year 10 onwards.

We shall be outlining good revision strategies in assemblies so that all students have an understanding of what makes effective revision. The presentation from this assembly will be available on the school website. Form tutors will also assist students in form time.

There is some excellent material on the school website which has specifically designed for the end of year exams. This can be found under the revision tab. Staff will also be delivering revision lessons during the revision week prior to the examinations.

As a reminder, the exam dates and revision dates are given below:

Exam Week                           Revision Week

Year 9                  w/c 20th May                         w/c 13th May

Year 8                  w/c 10th June                        w/c 3rd June

Year 7                  w/c 17th June                        w/c 10th June

Many thanks for your continued support.

Yours sincerely
