Pre-Public Examinations

Pre-Public examinations (PPE) are mock examinations in a subject.  These take place for Year 11 in November and for Year 13 in January, prior to the Summer examinations.  The PPEs provide feedback to students and identify targets to work on to enable them to secure the best possible grade.  We have a PPE Results Afternoon in January for Year 11 to support the importance of these exams and give students an insight in to the exam results day experience.

PPEs also take place in June and July of Year 10 and Year 12 to support students with their progress in a subject and provide curricular targets for the students to work on over the Summer to support them to make strong progress.
