Open Evening

Exam support and timetables

The purpose of this area is to provide information about internal and external examinations at Worthing High School and provide useful support information for students, parents and carers.

We feel that it is vital that the school works closely with parents to ensure that all of our students are fully prepared for Key Stage 4 exams. It is essential that students remain on top of their homework and independent learning tasks throughout their GCSE courses so that they can approach their final exams with confidence.

There are two important evenings for parents and students during this school year.

Every September there is a GCSE Induction Evening for all new Year 10 students and their parents. We present on how students can cope with the additional workload of KS4 study and how parents can help them to achieve their target grades.

We also hold a GCSE Study Skills Evening for all Year 11 students and their parents in the spring term. The event focuses on how best to prepare for the summer exams, revision techniques and includes specific presentations from core subject areas, English, Maths and Science.
