YEAR 9 DECEMBER MOCK EXAMINATIONS:
MONDAY 5 DECEMBER TO MONDAY 12 DECEMBER
Please find enclosed with this letter, a copy of the overview for our Year 9 mock examination timetable, your child’s personalised timetable and a copy of the Year 9 revision list.
The purpose of these examinations are to continue preparing our students for the rigour of the final GCSE examinations that they will be sitting in summer 2025 of their Year 11. These examinations take place in formal examination venues in the
same format as our Year 10 Summer mocks and our Year 11 January mocks.
We will hold a special Year 9 assembly where the expectations that we have for our students over the course of the mocks will be shared. These expectations are in place to ensure that all of our students are as prepared as possible for their examinations. This assembly will also include revision tips and advice as well as useful websites.
To support and prepare our students for the autumn mock examinations, our Year 9 teachers will be delivering a programme of teaching, advice, and support and revision
advice. Students will also receive a lesson on revision tips and examination practice in Tutor time.
Whilst we stress the importance of your child taking any assessments seriously, preparing for them as best as they can and striving to achieve their best, we equally stress the importance of health and wellbeing. We are fully committed to supporting all of our students in ensuring that we support and prepare them as best we can as they continue with their studies throughout Year 9.
If you have any further queries about the forthcoming examinations, or support for your child, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Head of Year, Form Tutor, Subject Teacher, or relevant Head of Faculty or Department. Students will be issued with their results from the autumn mocks in the January grade card.
