Exams at Hove Park
Welcome to our examinations page. Here you will find information about all the internal and external examinations that take place throughout the school year.
KS3 Summer Exams
Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 will be sitting internal exams in most of their subjects at the start of the summer term as follows:
- Year 7 - Tuesday 2nd - Friday 5th May 2017
- Year 8 - Monday 8th - Friday 12th May 2017
- Year 9 - Monday 15th - Friday 19th May 2017
These exams are a good opportunity for teachers to assess the progress students are making in their subjects in a formal context. We have placed the exams at this point in the calendar to allow plenty of follow-up time for quality feedback to be provided to students about how they can make further progress.
All the exams for English, maths and science will take place in a formal exam setting in the hall or gym and a timetable for these exams can be found here.
Exams for most other subjects will take place in classrooms during lesson time and students will be informed of dates and times by their teachers near the time of the exam.
Information about the content of the English, maths and science exams, along with guidance about what to revise and where to access revision materials can be found here.
Support for SEND students during exams:
For the small number of students whose normal way of working in class is to have either a reader, a scribe, extra time, use of a PC or laptop to complete written tasks etc., please be assured that this provision will be put into place for all KS3 exams. If your child qualifies for this provision we will have written to you, confirming this arrangement. Your child will be given information about where to report, prior to each exam.
