Assessment weeks

During the school year, there are key assessment weeks for our internal assessment, when students will be tested in school on what they have been learning. These assessments take a variety of forms and may include: a test; a detailed piece of writing; a practical assessment. These are in addition to the external exams, such as GCSES or A-levels, that students complete in Y11 and Y13.

Before an assessment week, you will be sent information about how to help your child prepare at home and ways that you can support them to do their very best. Staff will also let students know when these assessments will be.
