Students from years seven to ten are taking progress tests this week, as part of Gad’s Hill’s rigorous preparation for GCSE examinations.
The 11-15 year-olds sit termly assessments in a formal examination setting, to prepare for finals and enable teachers to assess ability based on exam, as well as class, performance.
Headmaster, Mr Paul Savage, said: “By completing regular testing under strict conditions, our students are familiar with the GCSE examination format and teachers are able to provide better and more frequent feedback to parents about academic progress.
“As well as getting used to the exam environment, students benefit from having the opportunity to develop their recall practice. This year we have been producing Knowledge Organisers, which are great revision tools to help prepare from and develop recall skills.”Posted on
