Yr 10 Assessment
Year 10 assessment week
The first formal assessment week for our Year 10 students begins on Monday 22nd 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 examination style questions in preparation for their formal external GCSE examinations.
The assessments will take place during lesson times and in the students’ usual classrooms. As such students have been asked to discuss the content, assessment method and timings with their classroom teacher a summary of which is available below.
We hope that all students will take the assessments seriously and prepare for them through carrying out revision activities at home. During form times over the next fortnight tutors will be discussing with students different revision strategies for them to use and trial so that they can develop good revision habits and practices now in readiness for the external examinations they will sit in the future.
We hope you find this information useful.
