Assessment at Smithdon High School
At Smithdon High School we regularly check on our students learning and progress in order to identify gaps and support students where necessary. Primarily this is achieved in lesson time using questioning and starter quizzes. Throughout the year we hold more formal assessments which are reported to parents. The schedule along with exact dates for these can be found on the Smithdon Calendar
At the end of year 10, the students will complete their first set of pre public exams (PPE/Mocks) in order to establish a working GCSE grade. Further PPE’s will take place in the Autumn and Spring terms of year 11. This will conclude with the official GCSE exams beginning early May.
