Students will sit practice examinations in Key Stage 4 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 outside the exams office.
Students will be supported with mock exam results and academic mentors or form tutors when talking through next steps who will suggest action plans that will further improvements for subsequent exams.
Students are given log-in information at the start of year for the platforms below, to support home revision and homework.
We may provide revision sessions, either virtually or in person over school holidays. Parents will be sent a calendar of lessons which will be emailed in advance to parents and students as well as being published on exam notice boards.
Parents are invited to attend either virtual or face to face meetings to find out how they can support their child with their studies alongside how to deal with exam stress, revision and next steps such as sixth form applications.
Your teachers and heads of subject areas are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to which resources will best help you to revise for each of your subjects.
Make good use of the revision materials you are given in school and keep everything in organised folders at home, so that you can keep them and refer back to them when preparing for your exams. Make sure you know the best books and study guides to get and ask your teachers for advice on which ones you should invest in.
