Dear Parents/Carers,

We are writing about the Year 7 End of Year (EOY) Assessment week, starting on Monday 6th June 2022. These are an opportunity for students to formally demonstrate what they have learned and know as a result of the teaching they have received, as well as support them to prepare for the next stage of learning.

During this week, students will be tested on the knowledge and skills they have acquired throughout the academic year. They will complete an assessment in each subject.

Subject Leaders will be scheduling exactly when subject assessments will be within this window and will communicate both the timing and topic lists via Google Classroom nearer the time. Please encourage your child to ensure they know exactly what they will be tested on and to spend appropriate time learning and revising for these assessments.

These grades will also be used to check the progress that students are making toward their IB MYP (International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme) targets.

Further information about assessment can be found in the Assessment section of the academy website and will be added to the Year 7 Google Classroom.

Assessments will last no longer than fifty minutes and will be completed within timetabled lessons.

Parents and carers will receive their son/daughter’s Year 7 report to review prior to the Year 7 Parent-Teacher Event on Wednesday 6th July 2022. We hope that this event will be in person and will take place between 2:30pm and 7pm. Please ‘save the date’. You will receive a letter with further details closer to the date.

We will continue to prepare students for revision and preparation for these assessments through lessons and tutor time. The students may also refer back to their exercise books, knowledge organisers, and their subject Google Classrooms to support their revision.

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

Yours faithfully,

Sarah Forde
Head of College, Leading on Examinations
