Preparation for Exams and your well being

Your well being is the most important thing to us. We know exams can be stressful, but with preparation, organisation, and different coping strategies, we know you can do your best, whatever questions are asked. Here are two videos from Mrs Earley and Mrs Sharrock, where they give information and advice about how to support your child through their GCSE exams.

Due to the current pandemic exams have been canceled for the year 2021. The Dfe has announced that this year’s grades will be awarded via Teacher Assessed grade (TAG). More information will be available here as they are released.
