Dear Parents/Carers

GCSE Art, Design, and Technology Mock Exam – Additional Hour on Wednesday 22 November 2023

I hope this letter finds you well. We would like to inform you about an important update regarding the upcoming GCSE Art, Design, and Technology mock exam, scheduled for Wednesday 22 November  2023.

To ensure that our students have the best possible preparation for their mock examinations, students will receive an extended day on Wednesday. Students will be finishing at 3.20pm instead of 2pm. This additional hour is necessary to provide students with a more comprehensive assessment of their abilities and to meet the requirements set by the examination board.

We understand that this extension may affect your child’s schedule, and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. However, we believe that this additional time will be valuable for our students to showcase their skills and knowledge effectively.

We kindly request that you make any necessary arrangements to accommodate this change in the exam schedule. 

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter. Our primary goal is to ensure that our students are well-prepared for their GCSE examinations, and we believe that this adjustment will contribute significantly to their success.

Thank you for your continued support in your child’s education.

Yours faithfully

Miss M BlackmanHead of Art and Photography & Mr H Janagel | Head of Design and Food
