Public Examinations Advice

Please refer below for information regarding public exams and adverse weather:

•If the main school is closed due to adverse weather public examinations will still go ahead as per JCQ regulations. If a student is unable to get to school safely to sit the examination he/she will not be able to retake the module until the following summer with the exception of GCSE English and Maths. Examination boards will not allow papers to be taken at a later date in the series.

•Morning examinations commence at 9am and afternoon examinations at 1.30pm. Students are expected to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the published start time

•A candidate will be considered very late it they arrive more than one hour after the awarding body's published start time for an examination which lasts one hour or more i.e after 10am for a morning examination or after 2.30pm for an afternoon examination. If an examination lasts less than one hour a candidate will be considered very late if they arrive after the awarding body's published finish time for the examination.




Summer 2016 GCSE and A2 certificates and Summer 2015 AS certificates will be handed out at Awards events in December/January.

Uncollected certificates from previous years are held in school and are available for collection from reception. You are welcome to collect the certificates in person from reception during school hours. You may delegate someone to collect them on your behalf. Please note that person must provide your written permission to do so.
