Examinations



A key part of school life is examinations. Every year a significant number of pupils will take examinations and preparation for these is vital. The school aims to prepare all pupils for examinations through mock examinations which take place prior to the main examinations. This gives pupils an opportunity to experience proper examination conditions and to test their knowledge and get feedback prior to taking their full examinations.


A programme of revision is made available to pupils prior to the main summer exams and throughout the year the school offers holiday schools to enable pupils to revise and go over material they have learnt.


For some examinations pupils are given study leave. We ask that parents encourage their children to revise during this period, but to ensure that they also take regular breaks. Advice and guidance on revision is given within departments.
