I am writing to inform you of Year 9 Mock Exams that will be taking place in June 2016. The students will be sitting internal exams in the hall under strict exam conditions. The exam dates for core subjects are below:
It is important that students bring the correct equipment for the exams as they will not be able to borrow. They will need a pencil, pens, ruler and rubber. If they have a pencil case it will need to be transparent. For the Maths exam they will also require a protractor and compasses.
As well as these, the students will also be sitting further exams for some of their GCSE options. This set of exams will be important and will be used by departments to review current sets for Year 10.
The students will be given their own personal exam timetable in registration on Friday 27th May. Copies of lost timetables will not be replaced and the students will be expected to write exam details in their planners. Seating plans and seating lists will be on the exams noticeboard. It will be the student’s responsibility to know their seat number. All the instructions for the exams will be on the reverse of the individual timetables and I would ask that you go through these with your child prior to the exams. It will be important for the students to revise for these exams and they will be made aware by their class teachers what they need to revise.
If you have any queries or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at school.
Head of Year 9
Students were taken on a tour of the college to show them the facilities available. Students learnt how to put a Ethernet cable together, text based programming as well a programming Lego robots to perform certain actions. Students also had experience of the enrichment programme that is offered at post 16.

The Year 8 boys football team and Year 9 girls netball team will be going to Barcelona at the end of May for a sports tour. All the teams will have some expert coaching, play games against local Spanish opposition, take part in an international tournament as well as seeing some of the local sights and a visit to a waterpark.
