These assessments are important and students should prepare appropriately by revising for every subject.

As part of the preparation for assessments every student receives a session on planning their revision time. During this they receive key revision information and help planning their revision timetable.

It is important to note that students will have time in lessons during the school day, their study support sessions and their usual homework time for revision. Their revision time should not greatly exceed the expected amount of time spent on homework in a normal week.

All students should ensure that:

  • They plan and follow a revision timetable.
  • They revise for each subject over the course of a week and spend some time every day revising. Little and often is the most effective technique.
  • They know when and where their assessments will take place.
  • They are on time for school and have the right equipment (pen, pencil, calculator, ruler, highlighter, pens etc. in a clear pencil case or bag)
  • They speak to their teachers, well in advance of the assessment, to clarify anything they are unsure about or if they are feeling anxious.
  • They understand the need for the highest standards of behaviour during the assessments. Poor behaviour will not be accepted and appropriate sanctions will be given if necessary.

Year 10 into Year 11

A short independent revision homework has been set for all year 10 students over the summer holiday. Click on the worksheet 'Getting Ready for Year 11' to download a copy which should be handed in to your tutor on the first day back - Monday 3rd September 2018.
