School Exams

School Exams

A written academic report is published to students and parents at four stages during the school year. This follows assessments conducted either in-class or during house exams. Assessment and reporting, consisting of grades and feedback for improvement, form an important part of student learning. It is essential that all reports are fully and thoroughly read by both parents and students, and we encourage you to discuss these at home.

The four reporting periods are:

  • October
  • Christmas
  • February / Mock Exams
  • Summer / Junior Cycle and Leaving Certficate Exams

Assessments conducted in October and February are completed in-class. Students in third and sixth years will complete their mock exams in February to prepare for their state exams. In other years groups, students may complete key-projects or Classroom Based Assessments (CBAs) which will form part of their report.

Assessments conducted before Christmas and Summertime are more formal in nature. These are called house exams and students will go off-timetable for one week in order to complete them. Their regular lessons will be replaced by timetabled exams and study periods which are designed to help prepare students for formal State exams.
