Preparing for PPEs
Welcome to our Year 11 and 13 Preparing for PPEs Virtual Event
Year 11 Pre-Public Examinations (PPEs) are scheduled to run from Tuesday 29th November to 16th December with Art Practical exams starting on 14th November.
The Year 13 PPEs are scheduled to run from 5th to 27th January 2023.
These "trial" or "mock" exams are vitally important for identifying what students know and understand, and what concepts and skills they still need to secure. They will give teachers the information they need to plan their lessons so that they address the learning needs of their students, as well as enabling students to plan their revision time efficiently and effectively as we approach the final exam season.
Below you will find a range of strategies to help both of these examination groups prepare for their PPEs and their external exams in the summer. To support them to prepare effectively for both the PPEs and their final exams, teachers will be focussing on exam and revision techniques in lessons alongside teaching new content. We are also increasing our support of student wellbeing throughout this period. For Year 11 this will come via the tutors during tutor time and the CALM Project, for Year 13 this will be in the form of additional materials on the Wellbeing Google Classroom and bespoke 'Wellbeing Workshops' for small groups, tailored to students' concerns, as well as via the CALM project.
We have also provided videos and a comprehensive guide to revision on this page to help both students and their parents and carers.
We thank you for taking the time to watch them.
By working together in this way, we hope to maximise the chances of success for all our fantastic students.
