Upper School Assessment Calendar

Each term, Ark Boulton Academy carry out assessments with each year group to determine where students are at in terms of grades and what students still do not know or cannot remember from our teaching. From here, we plan re- teach and further assessment. The results are also used in end of term reports, to support our parents in understanding the educational needs of their child.

The exam period comprises of a combination of written exam papers and computer based papers. Written papers take place under examination conditions within the usual classroom lesson time. Computer based assessments (called Eedi) are carried out on one day.

To support students, our heads of year lead short sessions for students to provide a revision timetable and teach them how to create flashcards, in order to begin to explore the idea of revision from their early years in our school.
