Assessment Calendar (2021-2022)

At Finham, we regularly assess students to monitor progress and inform the teaching of the classes.  Each department runs smaller, topic based assessments throughout the year, but we have published the larger assessments here to help you plan revision with your child.  It is worth noting that due to operational and curriculum reasons, some subjects may also assess outside the assessment calendar.
