Dear Parents/Carers,

We are writing about the Year 9 End of Year (EOY) Assessment week, starting on Monday 20th May 2024. This is 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 assessments will also be used to help identify the students final IB MYP (International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme) which is awarded at the end of Year 9. This information will be published in the Module 6 reports.

Further information about assessment can be found in the Assessment section of the academy website and will be added to the Year 9 Google Classroom.

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

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 IB 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,

Mr K Brewer
Head of College, Leading on Examinations
