GCSE Exam Results Day

Year 10 Mocks and KS3 Mock Exams

All are taking place week commencing 17 June 2019.

YEAR 10 “WALKING TALKING” MOCK EXAMS W/C 17 JUNE

The formal mocks that Year 10 will be sitting to prepare for their GCSEs will take part in two slots during Year 11 – one at the end of September/beginning of October and one after Christmas. This has been done purposefully to free up time in Year 10 to really concentrate on covering the GCSE course content and to enable students to focus fully on exam skills and honing their exam technique in Year 11. For the mocks this term we are using a ‘Walking, Talking’ exam model. This means Year 10 will have an English paper and two Maths papers which they will be prepared for in lessons beforehand and then will sit an exam in the hall to have an independent attempt to answer the paper. For Science they will have a teacher in the room ‘walking and talking’ them through the paper (essentially modelling how they can do it) and will answer the questions as they are talked about. 

Students will receive exam timetables in their tutor trays on Friday 7 June and if they have any questions should speak to their tutor or our exams officer, Mrs Fuller, who is based in the data office next to the pastoral office. Next week in tutor time on the tutor slides there will be instructions for students on where to go and how to line up for exams and our high expectations of them through the exam week. 

YEAR 7-9 MOCK EXAMS – W/C 17 JUNE

Students in Years 7-9 will take a formal mock exam for both English and Science (Maths is being assessed in lesson times). The purpose of these exams is to prepare students for the experience of sitting in an exam hall, under exam conditions and to support them to feel comfortable with this process and what will be expected of them as they move into their GCSE years.

ASSESSMENTS/EXAM PRACTICE IN LESSONS – ALL YEAR GROUPS

Please be aware that, at the discretion of the Subject Leader, students may also be sitting assessments/mock practice in their lessons too and if this is the case it will be recorded on ‘Show my Homework’ for you to view.
