Students are thoroughly prepared for external examinations that take place in the summer term of year 11.
Year 10 is the commencement of GCSE and BTEC qualifications. Students will sit practice examinations using past exam papers selected at random. This is to replicate real examination conditions. Full information regarding the rules surrounding exams can be found at the bottom of the page.
Examination timetables will be published approximately a month prior to exams. Students will need to check the exam notice board in the forum for seating plan information.
Mock Exam results will be provided to students after a formal assembly. They will be supported by CIEAG advisers and form tutors when talking through next steps. Bespoke action plans will support with further improvements for subsequent exams.
Students follow a weekly exam question calendar for each subject which involves completing 1 full exam question in exam conditions which is marked and graded according to exam board mark schemes. Any students not achieving their target grades are invited to attend intervention sessions to ensure they are successful in completing these questions in future exams.
Students are given log-in information at the start of year They are encouraged to complete the daily goals for maths, English and science each day. Each week, prizes are awarded to students who have high levels of engagement on these platforms.
We may provide revision sessions, either virtually or in person over school holidays. Parents will be sent a calendar of lessons which will be available on Microsoft Teams, Parentmail, emailed to students directly and published on exam notice boards.
Parents are invited to attend virtual meetings to find out how they can support their child with their studies. Topics such as exam stress, revision, information on careers and next steps such as college applications are discussed.
