Revision Material

The table below gives details of when exams take place throughout the school year and what subjects are examined. Please click on the subject header to access revision packs and example questions.  You will note that some revision packs are split between Common Entrance and Scholarship as in some subjects the exam may differ.

This material should prepare your child for the forthcoming exams in conjunction with preparation work that will take place during lessons prior to exam week.  

In Year 5, arrangements are slightly different.  The exams, which are only in Maths, English and Science, take place in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of the classrooms.  These are NOT exams that we expect the children to spend hours revising for.  Their subject teachers will prepare them in lessons prior to the exams.  They may have some books to bring home for further study but the emphasis of this first sitting is very much on the experience. Setting decisions for Year 6 will be based on the exam results as well as the child's performance in class throughout Year 5.

Beyond Year 5, we will be encouraging the children to plan for independent revision sessions at home as well as during prep time at school.  Learning to revise effectively is a skill that teachers and parents can help their child to develop (see Study Skills).
