Arrangements for Exams 2023

May 2, 2023

Year 10

We are writing to inform you of some changes to the current timetable arrangements. These arrangements are being put in place to assist our Year 11 learners during the GCSE examination period. During this important time (15.5.23 – 23.6.23) your child will continue, to be expected, to attend school on a daily basis.

The timing of the school day for Year 10 learners will be as follows:

Monday – Thursday  11.00am – 3.00pm

Friday                         11.00am – 12.30pm

Learners will still follow their core curriculum of English, Maths, Science and PSHE with some additional vocational activities included in the timetable.

We appreciate your understanding during this period of the year, and we will return to a more normalised timetable towards the end of June, when your child transitions into Year 11. Should you or them have any further questions or require additional support, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Other dates to note, when school will be closed to learners, include:

Monday 3rd July – INSET Day

No holidays or absences will be authorised at this time. Your child’s examination timetable is enclosed for your attention.

During the examination period (15.5.23 – 28.6.23) your child will continue, to be expected, to attend school on a daily basis.
