 Exam Week 1 2019-20

Exam weeks are vital in preparing students for their exams in the summer term, and we use them to identify students who need additional support and help.

Below is an overview of Exam week which takes place between the 18th Nov to the 26th November which is the 3rd week back after half term. Year 11 students will be earning study leave and this will be confirmed by Mr Westley closer to the time. Students need to meet all the expectations if they are to be given study leave, those who don’t will be expected to work in School.

All students and parents will be emailed a personalised timetable closer to the time and this will include their seat and row numbers in the hall. Please can you ensure that your child makes a note of these, so they know where they are sitting. If you child has access arrangements, please ask them to look carefully at the location/room numbers so that they know where they need to go.
