Dear Parent/Carer,

This year we will be re-introducing summer term examinations for all Year 8 pupils. These examinations will help to prepare your child for Year 10 and 11 when they will sit several external examinations in the examination hall. The Year 8 examinations will replace the summer term class-based assessment for English, Maths and Science. The examinations will start on Tuesday 18th June and will finish on Wednesday 20th June 2024.

The examination timetable below will help you support your child over the forthcoming weeks. Your child’s teachers will provide them with a revision list for each subject in advance of the examinations so that your child can start to prepare and revise effectively. The PSE morning that was held in March included a revision session that provided all Year 8 pupils with strategies and techniques to help them prepare for examinations.

Other important dates to be aware of:

– Internal Examinations:        Tuesday 18th June to Thursday 20th June 2024
– Year 8 Full Reports:              w/c Monday 15th July 2024

If you require any further clarification regarding examinations, please contact the school. Your continued support is valued and appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Mr A Owens
Deputy Headteacher
