Year 10 Core Examinations

Prior to attending work experience, Year 10 were informed about a series of core examinations and we would like to confirm the days and times of these exams below and which start on Tuesday 18 June.


Day Subject Location Time
Tuesday 18th June Maths Paper 1 Leisure Centre 9am – 10.30am


Wednesday 19th June Maths Paper 2 Leisure Centre 9am – 10.30am

Thursday 20th June

Paper 1

Leisure Centre 11.30am – 1.15pm


All examinations will take place in our Sports and Leisure Centre. They will provide Year 10 students with a real-life exam experience prior to completing their actual GCSE’s next year. The exams will also allow us to identify the gaps students currently have in their knowledge and understanding.


To support the closing of these gaps, we have organised a series of intervention sessions specifically for Year 10. Starting w/b 17th June, each session will run once per week until the end of this term. Each intervention is open to “all” students and will act as a therapy session to address individual learning needs as follows;


Day Subject Location Time
Tuesday English Portway 3.15pm – 4.15 pm


Wednesday Maths Dansteed 3.15pm – 4.15pm


Thursday Science Upper Level 3.15pm – 4.15pm



If you have any questions about the strategies mentioned above, please contact our Deputy Head
