Dear Parents/Carer

Year 10 Exams 2019

I am writing with regards to the Year 10 examinations which are scheduled from Monday, 25th March.

I have attached a copy of the schedule. The examinations will mostly be taken in normal lesson slots but under formal examination conditions. For English and Science the examinations will take place in the main examination venues including the Sports Hall, Lecture Hall and Gym and some special consideration in other smaller venues. This will give the students a flavour of the examination process in Year 11.

Year 10 Language speaking exams will take place during the week commencing Monday, 18 March:

Mon, 18 March French Mr Clements & Mrs Wyatt
Tues, 19 March French
Miss Burrows
Miss Wiltshire
Wed, 20 March French
Mr Barrett
Miss Budge
Fri, 22 March Spanish
Miss Leslie
Mrs Moseley

The examination weeks are designed to give students a realistic experience of the GCSE examinations in order to help prepare them for next year. I will be speaking to the students in an assembly and Mr Fenlon has explained some approaches to revision that research suggest are the most efficient and successful. The most important thing that students can do is to set up a simple timetable and then stick to it. It is more important to get started with a snappy programme than put off an expansive one!

Revision materials can be accessed from the drop down list in this area. If you have any questions or issues please contact the class teacher or subject leader in the first instance.

Kind regards

Mr S Parkes
Deputy Headteacher
