Revision materials and guides have been produced to provide specific, directed help to parents and students. The guides cover the examinations, both internal and external, that students take during the course of their HeadStart educational journey. These are all shared via the Google classroom and are constantly edited and updated to ensure they are as accurate and as effective as possible.
Although assessment and exam dates are mapped out and announced at the beginning of the year, they are subject to change. Parents are advised not to take their children out of school before the term ends in order to successfully complete all assessments, exams and assignments.
