Year 7 and Year 8 reports

Year 7 and Year 8 reports were given to students to take home on Thursday 13th July.  We would very much appreciate it if you could return the reply slip to your son or daughter’s form tutor so that we know that you have received this report.

Start of Year – September 2017

The school will re-open to all students after the summer holidays on Wednesday 6th September 2017.

For the 2017-2018 term dates please see

Year 7 Induction

It was great to see so many families sharing in the excitement of the Year 7 Induction Evening on Tuesday 4th July.  We are looking forward to you all joining the Wilmslow High School community in September.

Summative assessments – part 2 – summer term 2017

Arrangements for summer summative assessments:

· Assessment week for Year 7 and Year 8 is week commencing 19th June

· Assessment week for Year 9 is week commencing 26th June

· Year 10 will have formal written exams from Thursday 22nd June to Friday 30th June, with practical exams the following week

· Year 7, 8 and 9 assessments will take place during students’ normal timetabled lessons during these weeks; no separate examination timetable will be published

· Year 10 will receive personal examination timetables shortly. When they do not have an examination they will be expected to be in their timetabled lesson.

· Most Year 7, 8 and 9 assessments will be designed to take about 30 minutes to complete, but students will be allowed longer than this to ensure that time is not a limiting factor

· Most students will actually spend this additional time reading their private reading book: please ensure that your child brings their personal reader with them to school, as they should every day.

Mathematics exams have been timetabled separately in order to allow a double period in the sports hall. They are as follows:

  • Year 7 Thursday 15th June P1-P2 (This is next week rather than during their assessment week)
  • Year 8 Monday 19th June P3-P4
  • Year 9 Monday 3rd July P3-P4 (This is in the week following their assessment week)


Aspirations Questionnaire update

From Thursday 8th – Friday 16th June, we are asking students to review their aspirations. They can submit new or updated responses to the Aspirations Questionnaire via Firefly. ALL students must have recorded at least one answer to this questionnaire this year.  Please note this information will be included in the Wider Curriculum Reports that will be published at the end of the summer term.
