Dates of controlled assessments are not fixed, and may be undertaken at any time throughout Years 10 and 11, so the above is intended purely as a guide. Pupils are made aware of any impending controlled assessment, and given at least 1 week’s notice of any specific date. We try to be as flexible as possible, in the students’ interest.

 

Note: anyone missing English controlled assessments through illness can normally be accommodated.
