Examinations

Revision 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.

Although exam dates and events 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.
