Exam Information

All students in year 10 and 11 will be issued with an updated Exam information booklet for 2017-2018 in the coming weeks.

A copy of the booklet will be made available here on the website once it has been distributed.

It is very important that students read through this information and familiarise themselves with the rules and regulations which apply to exams, coursework and controlled assessments, together with equipment required. They should also keep the information safe so they can refer to it during the year.


Exam Timetables

Information regarding exam dates for Pre Public Exams (PPE's) and external GCSE exams, will be posted here as they become available, but will just be general date information until exam entries are finalised.

A reminder that students should attend all exams in full school uniform, and come fully equipped with a black pen, pencil and ruler. They will also require a compass and protractor for their Maths exams and a calculator for the Maths calculator paper and all their Science exams.

Staying well hydrated during exams is very important, students are allowed to bring a drink with them to exams, but this must be water only, in a clear plastic bottle with any labels removed.
