As you may be aware, Year 8 students are due to have school examinations during the week beginning 29th June. These exams will take place in most subjects and the main purpose of them will be to give the students a chance to experience an intensive exam period which we hope will help prepare them for future exams. It will also provide additional information for teachers about the students’ progress which will be especially helpful for staff when they are planning work for Year 9.
