At Clayton Hall Academy we pride ourselves on our Gold Standard education.
The culmination of five years’ work is, in part, seen in the final examination results. It is also seen in the well-rounded young adults that move on to their lives beyond Clayton Hall.
To help prepare our students for their terminal exams we provide a lot of guidance and support, this includes our program of internal examinations – our PPEs (Pre-Public Examinations). These exams dovetail into our assessment processes throughout the school year.
As you will be aware we are providing Teacher Assessed Grades again in 2021. All details about the process can be found on our Teacher Assessed Grades page.
Below you will find links to a wealth of resources, which are still be useful in preparing for the ongoing assessment that is taking place to finalise our Teacher Assessed Grades.

Year 10 PPE Preparation
Dates of Year 10 PPE’s: June 7th to 17th 2021
This year’s PPEs (Pre-Public Examinations) are taking place in the Sports Hall to give students an experience of how the exams will be next Summer. Students must follow the same rules as you would for an actual examination.
Due to how GCSE’s were awarded in 2020 and this year it is even more important this year that students perform to their highest possible standards. We really don’t know what is around the corner!
Please see the schedule and revision list below which has been designed with pupil welfare in mind so there are not more than two exam sessions per day, there is a short video presentation to support this, including how the exams will be organised and some tips for preparation. The document was emailed to parents and students earlier this term.
To go with this schedule students have been given a personalised timetable. Teachers will be running revision sessions in school and will signpost resources for them to use within Microsoft Teams.
Year 11 PPE Preparation
Dates of Year 11 PPE’s: MFL 2nd to 6th November; All others 9th to 20th November
This year’s PPEs (Pre-Public Examinations) are taking place in classrooms, due to Covid-19 restrictions. Students must follow the same rules as you would for an actual examination. Due to how GCSE’s were awarded last year it is even more important this year that students perform to their highest possible standards!
Please see the schedule below which has been designed with pupil welfare in mind so there are not more than three exam sessions per day, there is a short video to support this, including how to use the schedule.
To go with this schedule all teachers will let students know which sessions their exams are taking place in and give them the relevant revision checklists and support materials. These will all be in Microsoft Teams.
