Revision leave dates – Summer 2018
Fifth year: revision leave begins Friday 3 May, 5.20pm
Upper Sixth: revision leave begins Friday 17 May, 1pm
Fifth Year: The 5th year will, as usual, be offered optional study leave help for the first three weeks of their revision leave in the form of subject clinics and supervised study rooms at school More detail on this will be given before they go on leave.
Upper Sixth: Some Upper Sixth boys will be taking public exams in the week before their official revision leave begins (e.g. some maths units). In such cases, for an afternoon exam, boys will be permitted to take the morning as revision leave. No revision leave is granted the day before a morning exam.
Lower Sixth: Now that all subjects have been reformed, there are no public examinations at all for L6th boys. The School will hold its own Lower Sixth internal exams in the week after half term in the summer and will then issue both exam grades and 'guidance grades' (projections towards A Level) to boys and parents to assist in the choosing of which subject (if any) to drop for Upper Sixth and to help with research into university options.
