Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to let you know about the exam week coming up for year 10. This will commence the week beginning 18th June 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 good practice for their GCSEs.

Teachers will be preparing their classes for the exams in the weeks running up to this date and most will provide their students with revision materials to support them. It will be expected that students undertake their own revision as well. As was the case in last year, 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 of 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
James Mackay
Head of Year 10
