Dear Parents/Carers,

Your child’s Year 10 Mock examination period is scheduled for Monday 20th June – Friday 1st July 2022.

We will be scheduling exactly when subject mock examinations will be within this window and Subject Leaders will communicate both the timing and topic lists via Google Classroom nearer the time.

These examinations offer your child the opportunity to develop their technique, whilst demonstrating their knowledge and understanding of the subject content studied throughout this academic year. Module 5 is an ideal opportunity for your child to review in-year assessments, act on targets, and practice examination questions through a structured revision programme, which should enable them to do well in their Year 10 examinations.

The Module 4 Year 10 report will have helped your child to identify areas within the curriculum, in both attainment and effort, on which they must focus. I encourage you to work with your child to construct a meaningful revision rota. They will be able to access revision material through their subject Google classrooms, and past papers with their mark schemes through examination board websites. The Year 10 mock examinations will provide us with a clear picture of your child’s attainment and progress so that we can accurately reflect on how to address the challenges they will face in Year 11.

The results of these mock examinations will be shared with parents and carers during the last week of the summer term. In line with our Assessment and Reporting calendar, your son/daughter will be issued with their current grades for all of their GCSE and BTEC subjects at this point.

The outcomes of the Mathematics, English, and Science mock examinations will be used in order to review the ability-based set that your son/daughter will be in at the beginning of Year 11. Should your son/daughter move set, the relevant Director of Learning will communicate this to you.

We will continue to prepare students for revision and preparation for these examinations through lessons and tutor time. Throughout this period of revision and preparation for these mock examinations, the academy strongly recommends that your child continues with their extracurricular pursuits, and endeavours to balance revision with sleep, exercise, and a healthy diet throughout the remainder of their Year 10 studies.

We understand that preparing for the mock examinations could cause worry for some of our pupils, so please do remind your son/daughter to talk initially to their subject teacher or form tutor if they have any concerns.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s college leadership team if you have any further queries.

Yours faithfully,

Sarah Forde
Head of College, Leading on Examinations
