Year 7 End of Year Exam

Dear Parent/ Carer,

I am writing to let you know about the exam week coming up for year 7. This will commence the week beginning 15th May and is likely to run in most lessons for the week.

The exams will take place during lesson time. The results of these exams will help your child’s teachers to measure the progress made in their subject this year, and will be a contributing factor to deciding the set your child will go into next year. The results will also help us to tailor more support if necessary and identify where we can put interventions in place to help your child achieve their target grades.

Teachers will have been preparing their classes for the exams over the past few weeks and most will have provided their students with revision materials to support them.

The structure of the exams will closely model GCSE exam conditions and students will be expected to complete the exams in standard exam conditions.

It is our hope that these exams will encourage your child to get into a routine of revision that will help reduce the inevitable stress and pressure that many of them feel during exam season in Year 11. Ideally this routine should be fostered throughout the school year in the form of regular completion homework and a commitment to completing any work missed through absence.

If you have any questions or queries about the upcoming exams, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Yours sincerely

Kerry Hallett

Year 7 Group Leader
