Year 9 Assessment 2019
Year 9 assessment window: 23rd April - 3rd May 2019
As part of our work to prepare our Year 9 students for their GCSE examinations we will run a period of assessments in each subject area between Tuesday 23rd April and Friday 3rd May. These assessments will provide an invaluable experience for your son of sitting assessments in the same examination conditions as his final GCSEs.
During this assessment window we will split your son’s time in two, so that:
- Tuesday 23rd – Friday 26th April: assessments will be taken in each of the three core subjects – English, Maths & Science. Faculty Leaders for these subjects will be setting two exam papers per subject across these four days, timings of each paper will be confirmed. These assessments will take place in the main school examination rooms to give students a first experience of these exam conditions.
- Monday 29th April – Friday 3rd May – in this window students will sit an assessment in each of their option subjects. These assessments will last up to an hour and will take place within the students’ usual classrooms.
Students will be issued with revision lists and advice over the coming days from their subject teachers, with revision lists also being placed on Show My Homework. Details of revision lists for each year group can be found in PDF format below.
Please remind your son that when not in an examination during this assessment window, students will be in their normal lessons, although these will have a revision focus throughout the initial period of 23rd-26th April. The results of these assessments will be shared with you as families once the assessment window has finished.
