Examinations

We take great pride in the achievements of our students in the National examinations.  The level of achievement at GCSE has continued to improve due to the professionalism of the staff, the application of our students and the support of parents.  It is our policy to give all our students the opportunity to be entered for public examinations in order that they gain the best possible qualifications.  

To ensure that students are prepared for their actual GCSE exams, throughout KS4, there are several times where planned practice exams take place.  These are published within the Parent Handbooks sent out at the start of September and on the Parent App Key Dates. 

For each examination, including practice exams, students are given a personalised timetable indicating the time, length and location of each exam as well as their seat number.  

It is essential that students record a note of the time, location and seat number of each exam, as these are different for different exams.  

Students are expected to arrive at the exam location and 10 minutes before the start time of the exam.  

To meet with the JCQ expectations, all electronic equipment, including mobile phones will be handed in before the start of the exam, pencil cases will need to be transparent and clear bottles of water with no labels are allowed.  

The GCSE Exam Timetable for June 2021 has been confirmed, however these dates are subject to change depending on the current guidelines in place at the time of the exams.
