When pupils start at Purbrook Park they are allocated GCSE targets for all their subjects, based on their Key Stage 2 results. Teachers use this data to plan challenging and engaging lessons, ensuring that all pupils secure the best levels of progress. Timely and regular assessment across Key Stage 3 ensures effective monitoring and tracking of progress.
Pupils in year 7 will sit formal, GCSE style examinations in April, and pupils in year 8 will sit their formal GCSE style examinations in October. The exact dates of these assessments are available on the school calendar.
To support all pupils and parents in their examination preparation, we provide key information and a booklet about revision techniques.
