Year 8 Examinations 2015 UPDATED

Examinations UPDATE for Year 8 will take place on Monday 22nd, Tuesday 23rd June and Wenesday 24th June

We apologise for any inconvenience caused due to the moving of some exam dates.

Dear Parents

Year 8 Examinations 2015


Examinations for Year 8 will take place on Monday 22nd , Tuesday 23rd June and Wednesday 24th June.  These will take place in the Old Sports Hall for the majority of students.  Normal lessons will not run on these days.  The timetable of examinations for your son is shown below.

It is important that your son attends school during this period as the examinations provide valuable information about your son’s progress and the results will contribute to set changes that take place between Year 8 and Year 9.  The results of these exams will be communicated to you in your son’s report, later in the summer term.

It is important that students are properly equipped to take the tests and we would appreciate parental support in ensuring that boys arrive for the examinations with full equipment including a calculator, protractor and pair of compasses.

There is an opportunity to revise at the beginning of the Maths and Science exams so please make sure your son has the relevant exercise books and revision materials with him in school.  In formal examinations, mobile phones and MP3 players are not permitted.  I would recommend that your son leaves such items at home on these days, or alternatively, he will need to hand them in at the beginning of the exam.


Yours sincerely

Mr R B Johnson

Assistant Headteacher
