How to support your child with Semester Assessments

We aim to work in partnership with parents and carers to help students to be the happiest they can be at school and to help them to make the maximum progress. Support from home is an enormous help for many students.

These pages aim to give information about the academic programme that will help you to support your child.

How to help your child

Our school year is split into four Semesters. At the end of each Semester, students will be examined on the work they have covered. The testing dates for each subject may be slightly different, but they will all normally fall within the Semester testing window.
