Welcome to Bishop Challoner Catholic College

Dear Parent/Carer,

Year 10 mini mock assessments will take place in a number of subjects between Monday 16th May and Friday 24th June 2022 and will be completed during lesson time in normal exam conditions. A mini mock assessment timetable is now published on the school website, along with guidance on the topics to be assessed within each subject. Please take the time to read this content so that you are fully aware what your child should be revising at home to support their preparations. 

Please note the following:

  • It is important that students are preparing thoroughly for these examinations and referring to the guidance given. These mock exams allow us to measure the progress your son/daughter has made since the beginning of their GCSE course. These mock exams will identify if any intervention needs to take place and will for some subjects result in set changes taking place for Year 11.
