Year 7 to Year 9 Examination Fortnight
Years 7 to 9 have a common school examination fortnight. Boys will be assessed in their subject lessons under examination conditions. This not only forms part of our ongoing internal assessment, but the experience also prepares boys for their final external examinations at the end of Y11. Boys will receive in advance, the time of their subject examination (during a regular timetabled lesson) as well the content and style of the examination in order for them to prepare.
In addition, guidance about how best to prepare for these assessments, with an emphasis on the need to spend quality time at home revising, will be given so as to promote the good routines that will serve them well during the final external examinations at the end of Y11.
