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 final 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. 

Year 10 PPEs

Information available soon!

Year 11 PPE Preparation

Dates of Year 11 PPE’s:

  • Monday 6th November – Friday 17th November
  • Tuesday 20th February – Friday 1st March

This year’s PPEs (Pre-Public Examinations) are taking place in the Main Hall and Library, with some additional small rooms.  Students must follow the same rules as they would for an actual examination. It is important this year that students perform to their highest possible standards in all examinations.

Please see the schedule below which has been designed with pupil welfare in mind so there are not more than two exam sessions per day for most students depending on the options subjects they chose.

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.

Good Luck!
