Year 7 Exams 16-20 April 2018

Year 7 will be sitting exams in some of their subjects at the start of the summer term between Monday 16th April and Friday 20th April.

These exams are a good opportunity for teachers to assess the progress students are making in their subjects. The exams are placed at this point in the calendar so that there is plenty of time afterwards for quality feedback to be provided to students about how they can make further progress.

Students will only sit exams in the following subjects: English, Maths, Science, Languages, Computer Science, History and Geography.

All the exams for English, Maths and Science will take place in a formal exam setting in the hall or gym and a timetable for these exams can be found on the exams page of our website by following the link below:

Information about the content of the exams along with guidance about what to revise and where to access revision materials can also be found on our website.

The exams for all the other subjects mentioned above will take place in classrooms during lessons and students will be informed of dates and times by their teachers nearer the time of their exam.

Support for SEND students during exams:

For the small number of students whose normal way of working in class is to have either a reader, a scribe, extra time, or use of a PC or laptop to complete written tasks, please be assured that this provision will be put into place for all KS3 exams. If your child qualifies for this provision we will have written to you, confirming this arrangement. Your child will be given information about where to report, prior to each exam.

If you need further information about this please email the school office on office@hovepark.org.uk.
