I am writing to you about this summers end of year assessments and exams for students in years 7 8 9 and 10. Students will be starting their end of year exams and assessments next week, please see the timetable attached. These assessments and exams will help students and teachers identify strengths and areas for development next year. For our year 10 students they will also provide valuable experience of examinations as they move into year 11.
For those students in years 7 8 and 9, in addition to the assessments set by their teachers, they will be taking their GL assessments in English and Maths. These assessments will show how much progress students have made over the year, compared to other students nationally. The GL assessments build a picture of each student’s strengths and areas for development, which will help us all to work together next year to ensure they are successful. All parents of students who take a GL assessment will receive a report at the end of the year that details those strengths and areas for development. Please note that there is no need for students to revise for the GL assessments.
