Ahead of formal GCSE exams in Summer 2018, Year 10 students are undertaking a regular programme of assessment to ensure that they have the skills required to be successful under exam conditions.


An important part of this programme is the official internal exams, which will reflect on the content of course content undertaken so far. Exams will take place between Monday 12th and Tuesday 20th June 2017.


Exam Timetable

To support your forward planning, the timetable can be viewed in this article. This will be useful for students to begin to plan the extensive private study and revision that should be undertaken ahead of the exams.


Exam Revision

Students will work with mentors in the coming weeks to plan a revision timetable. We would expect students to undertake between 12 and 16 hours of private study per week to maximise their potential.



Students will be expected to bring black biros, pencils, an eraser, a maths geometry set (including a pair of compasses, ruler and a protractor), a scientific calculator and highlighters. These should be in a transparent bag or pencil case. Students without full equipment will be sanctioned.



Students may bring water bottles, but they must be transparent and have all labels removed.



All students are required to wear full uniform during the exams.


Outside of Exam Time

All students will have lessons with their teachers outside of exam time. Full equipment for these sessions should be brought to school.


Exam Results

Results will be distributed in a special ‘results ceremony’ on Wednesday 5th July.


Return to Lessons

All lessons will resume on 3rd July following their Work Experience. Full attendance is expected until we break for the summer holidays on 21st July.
