Yr 10 Assessment

Year 10 assessment week

Assessment Week

The first assessment week of the academic year for Year 10 will take place on the week commencing 21st  November.  The purpose of the assessments is to allow teachers to gain a deeper understanding of the strengths and areas for development for each student within their class.  It will also give students a chance to have the experience of answering formal GCSE examination style questions in preparation for their external exams. 

We hope that all students will take the assessments seriously and prepare for them through carrying out revision activities at home.  To assist with this revision, we have provided all students with a free pack of flash cards for them to use.  Their form tutor will have handed these out during the past two weeks.  

Please also find additional information below for each subject.  You can see the topics that will be covered on the assessment, the style and duration of the assessment and information on where to find information to help with these topics.  We hope this will assist you in supporting your child with their revision. 

Revision Information Guide

In addition to the specific additional support listed by the departments, every student in the school has access to an online platform called Seneca Learning.  This is a site where students can access revision material and short recall quizzes about specific topics for a wide range of subjects.  This can be accessed at http://www.senecalearning.com  They can sign in using their school e-mail address.  If they have forgotten their password, they can reset it themselves by clicking the “forgotten my password” link on the Seneca site.

I would also like to take the opportunity to highlight the date of our Year 10 Parents’ Evening which will be on 8th December.  This will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with their individual subject teachers.
