Soft Mocks
27/06/2024 5:00 PM

Dear Parents and Carers,

This letter is to inform you about the upcoming soft mock exams for our Y10 students. These exams will be held from 10 am to 11.20 am and will cover a range of subjects (English Language, Maths, Biology).


What are Soft Mocks?

Soft mocks are practice exams designed to:


  • Familiarise students with the format and style of the actual exams. 

  • Help them develop exam techniques and time management skills.

  • Identify areas where students may need additional support.

  • Provide valuable feedback for both students and teachers.

  • Why are Soft Mocks Important?


By participating in soft mocks, students gain valuable experience that will help them feel more confident and prepared for the real exams. They can also use the feedback they receive to focus their revision efforts in the most effective way.


What to Expect:

The soft mocks will be conducted under exam conditions as much as possible.

Students will be sitting in specific rooms with allocated staff.


How You Can Help:

Encourage your child to take the soft mocks seriously and to put in their best effort.

Discuss the importance of practising exam techniques, such as time management and revision strategies.

Help them manage their stress levels by creating a calm and supportive environment at home.

Be available to talk to them about their results and to help them develop a plan for improvement.

We will be sharing the results of the soft mocks with students and parents shortly after the exams are completed. Teachers will also be available to discuss individual results and provide further guidance.


We believe that these soft mocks will be a valuable learning experience for all students. We appreciate your support in helping your child prepare for their upcoming exams.

This informative session will offer attendees the opportunity to find out the up-to-date issues children and young people face in a digital world – including grooming, cyber bullying, and the sending of indecent images. The session will also look at how the online space can also be used to criminal exploit children. 

Attendees will leave the session with several places young people and families can be signposted to if they have concerns and how to respond to certain incidents.
