Examinations

At Chichester Free School we want to ensure that all students are nurtured and guided through their examination journey. We will be providing our students with some revision sessions and some subject specific revision booklets. Here you can find supportive material such useful website links, latest news and updates from the examinations team and tutors.

Year 11 Mock Examinations

The first Year 11 Mock Examinations are fast approaching, running from Monday 3rd December to Thursday 13th December, with Art and MFL orals straight after Christmas. Although pupils have already completed mock examinations at the end of Year 10, and will have further practice in some subject areas in February, these are the main mocks before the final GCSEs and are an essential part of the journey to successful results in August.

In some subjects, such as Science, the result of these exams will contribute heavily to decisions about tier of entry and in all subjects they are essential in highlighting areas of key focus for the coming months. This is also their final chance to refine revision and exam techniques and there is nothing quite like the confidence boost that can come with a successful set of mock results.

On this page here you will find the exam timetable that all Year 11 pupils have received. Pupils are expected in school as normal, and they must be in school uniform. In between the exams, lessons will take place. These will be a mixture of taught lessons, guided revision or private revision, at the discretion of the teacher. All exams will take place in the Sports Hall, unless otherwise stated, with Access Arrangements in the Sixth Form Common Room. All Access Arrangements, including extra time, will be in place.

Although feedback will occur as soon as possible, formal grade results will be presented to all pupils on Friday 18th January during assembly, giving them the full experience of opening their results envelopes. Although we hope that pupils will share these with you that weekend, the results will also formally be sent out to all parents alongside the latest progress report on 30th January.

You will also find a link here to the revision timetable template. Again, pupils have all received a physical copy of this and are working with their subject teachers and tutors to complete it, but I would encourage you to discuss this with your son/daughter and help to monitor its progress as we approach the exams.

Finally, electronic versions of the revision resources provided on the Year 11 Revision Evening are here for your information.
