Message from Mr. D. Collins - thursday 14 january 2021

Dear Students and Parents,

As you can see from the letter posted above from Gavin Williamson at present the exact format of assessment is yet to be defined by the Government.  We shall continue to update students and parents when there is greater clarity in how grades will be formulated. 

In the meantime we encourage all students to engage in their remote learning and prepare for their examinations. I can assure you that Knole Academy will work to endeavour that all students will be rewarded with outcomes that are reflective of their potential.

Best wishes,
David Collins

SUMMER 2021 Examinations

The Government have announced that the Summer examinations for GCSE & A Level have been cancelled. We are yet to receive notification regarding IB and vocational courses.

The exact form that assessment will take is yet to be announced, however it could involve externally set tests. We encourage students to engage with their remote learning and to prepare as if these exams were still scheduled.

January 2021 Examination Season - Years 10, 11 & Post 16

Please read the exam timetable below along with important information for candidates sitting exams along with unauthorised items.

Warning to Candidates

Unauthorised Exam Items

Year 11 and Year 13 Mock Examinations 2021

It is our intention to hold mock examinations when students return to school. We shall give all students a period of time back in lessons to prepare for these mock examinations before they take place.  The mock examinations will only assess work that has been covered by teachers.  We feel that the mock examinations provide a benchmark when teachers have to submit centre assessed grades, however please be assured that this will not be the only evidence that is taken into consideration as we recognise that some students may perform below expectation especially as a result of the disruption to education.

The timetable below is only indicative of the subjects that will be examined, the schedule is obviously subject to change as a result of the national lockdown.
