Year 10 Mock Exams

by | Jun 7, 2024 | Exam | 0 comments

Dear Parents and Carers,

As previously communicated, Year 10 mock exams will take place w/c 17th June and will run for two weeks.
Students will be assessed in the core subjects (English Language, English Literature, Maths, Science), EBacc subjects (Geography, History, French and Spanish) and their two option subjects. A copy of the timetable can be found below.

To support, students have been provided with a revision pack containing: revision cards, pens, highlighters, post-it-notes and a booklet containing effective revision techniques.

From Monday 17th June – Thursday 26th June pupils should aim to arrive at school at 8am, so they can either attend a masterclass or complete independent revision in Diner 1. This is the routine that will be followed when pupils sit their final GCSE examinations in Year 11. I am aware that for some students, personal circumstances may not allow for this. However, where possible, it is vital that our Year 10 students are prepared and familiar with the routine ahead of Year 11. In addition, pupils will be expected to attend compulsory after school masterclasses during the two-week exam period; these sessions will run from 3:30-4:15pm. If your child is unable to attend a session, due to unforeseen circumstances, then please get in contact with me.

On top of your child’s personalised revision, they should be over halfway through their 30-day core challenge. The Year 10 Core Challenge is a revision timetable that is bespoke for each student based upon what set they are in in each core subject. There are no more than 2 subjects per evening and there is one day off each week. If you child successfully completes this challenge, they will be put in a draw to win the following prizes: Air Pods, £50 JD voucher, £50 Nandos voucher and pizza party. In addition, they will automatically go on a trip to a theme park.

Furthermore, your child will be expected to adhere to the GCSE Examination rules. Failure to follow these expectations will result in serious consequences. Ultimately, if your child does not these expectations during their Summer Examinations, they will be disqualified from all their exams. In addition, if students do not arrive to school in the correct uniform, they will complete the exam in isolation.

Thanks for your continued support If you have any questions or concerns then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks,
Mr Archer
Attainment and Standards Leader – Year 10
