What are pre-public examinations? (Mock Exams)

In Years 10 and 11, students sit PPEs (Pre Public Examinations). These internal examinations, completed under the same conditions as the external GCSEs, are designed to provide a realistic experience and prepare students for approaching examination seasons. 

The PPE’s are a ‘mock’ of the real GCSE assessments and are a really important indication of how students are getting on in all of their subjects ahead of their final GCSE’s. In order to accurately intervene and support students in the most appropriate way, their teachers need an accurate picture of where they are in their knowledge, skills and understanding. This is why we really encourage our young people, and their parents/carers, to take PPEs seriously.
