It is our aim to make the exam experience as successful and stress-free as possible for our students and parents.
General exam timetables will be published here as soon as the information becomes available. These are intended as a guide only and may be subject to change. We will issue pupils with a personal exam timetable showing exact dates and times as soon as we can. Please note practical and speaking tests are not included and details of these will be given to pupils by their subject teacher. Sometimes candidates have a clash where two exams are scheduled for the same time. In most cases these would just follow on from each other. Please check that all personal details (date of birth, spelling of names) are accurate as these will appear on certificates and will be difficult to change once certificates are awarded.
The exam boards set down strict regulations for the conduct of exams which the school and its pupils are required to follow. The JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) Information for Candidates will be issued to pupils before each exam series. This explains these rules in detail. Candidates should read this carefully and note that any breach of these regulations will be reported to the awarding body and could lead to disqualification.
There may be exceptional circumstances when you think a pupil may not be able to sit an exam in which case please contact the Exams Office immediately for advice.
If you have any queries or need help or advice at any time before, during or after the exams please contact us using the details in the Contact section.
If an ex-year 11 or 13 student did not attend awards evening, they should collect their exam certificates from school reception as soon as possible.
It is very important that these are collected as they will eventually be destroyed and copies will not be available.
