Year 11 English Assessment

The Leigh Academy logo

Dear Parents/Carers,


We are pleased with the positive attitude and work ethic of our Year 11 students this week as they have completed their end of year subject assessments.  Their commitment and focus has been a joy to see, particularly after such a disrupted and challenging year.  Staff are busy, marking, and moderating and ensuring that every child has a complete portfolio of evidence for every subject, to contribute to the Teacher Assessed Grades.

As we prepare for every eventuality, checking, sampling and quality assuring, we now need an additional piece of assessed English Language work to complete the evidence compiled.  As such the scheduled English Literature assessments on Tuesday 11th May will be replaced with an English Language assessment.  This English Language paper will follow the format that students have been preparing for, with unseen text and questions.

The English Literature assessment will be moved to Monday 17th May, further details to guide the student’s preparation for this paper will be shared with the students next week.

Thank you for encouraging and supporting your child in their continued preparation for their assessments over the weeks ahead.

If you have any queries regarding the Year 11 assessments, please contact Mr Brewer, in the first instance.


Yours faithfully,

Julia Collins
