Year 8 Skills Tests

Monday 11th to Friday 15th February 2019

The skills tests for Year 8 students are aimed at developing and practising key skills in Maths and English and also learning key facts and information in relation to Geography and History. Students will be tested on this work in week commencing 11th February 2019.

The nature of the tests will be such that for the key areas of English and Maths, we will be expecting students to practise and develop the basics, i.e. numeracy skills for Maths, punctuation, grammar and spelling for English and key facts for Geography and History.

 

Revision Materials

All the material to help students prepare for the tests is available to download below. TOP TIP: Save the booklets to your phone, tablet, laptop or PC so you can access them anytime, anywhere – no need to print!  If you do need a paper copy, please see Miss Grainger in the LRC.

For students who do not have IT access at home, the school computers are available at lunchtime and after school. F205 is available at lunchtime and after school until 5pm, Monday-Thursday. The LRC (library) is available at lunchtime and afterschool until 5.30pm Monday to Thursday, 4.30pm Friday.
