Revision

Revision

Thorough revision is an important ingredient of examination success.

The skill of revising effectively is developed over a child's time in secondary school. One of the purposes of internal examinations is for students to explore different strategies to revise and hone their technique.

Revision materials supplied by departments will often be placed on VLE (virtual learning environment); each student has his/her own log-in.

Year 11

Year 11s often sit three series of mock exams, pre and post-Christmas and their results are distributed during a Mock Results afternoons. In addition students will attend walking talking mocks for all subjects to facilitate greater understanding of exam papers.

In preparation for the summer public examinations, students are issued with an amended study timetable in the final weeks to ensure time is used to its maximum effect to support students.

Years 7 – 10

Internal assessments are held throughout the year in all years.  However, in the summer term the school holds an Examination Week for all students.  This is to prepare students for public examinations and to summarise their achievement at the end of the year.
