KS3 Exams

As part of our cycle of regular assessment and reporting that includes Progress Checks, Academic Review Days and Subject Surgeries, we are planning a programme of end of year exams in English, Maths and Science for all students in Year 7, 8 and 9.

These exams will take place between 13th June and 24th June as per the timetable below. They will take place during normal lesson time and will be held in the Sports Hall. This arrangement has the additional benefit of giving students in Key Stage Three the experience of sitting formal examinations in the same environment that they will sit their formal public examinations in during Year 11.

Each subject area will allocate some lesson and preparation for learning time in the run up to the exams to help students prepare. Students should expect to also complete some revision independently and subject staff will also share topics that will be covered in the exam during lessons in the near future. If you have questions about the exams, please contact the relevant subject teacher or your child’s form tutor in the first instance.
