Exams Information

Please ensure you are familiar with the documents below before you sit any internal or external examinations.

Written Examinations Coursework Assessments On-Screen Tests None-Examination Assessments

The awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 29 June 2022 as a ‘contingency day’ for examinations.  The designation of a ‘contingency day’ within the common exam timetable is in the event of national or significant local disruption to examinations in the UK.  It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations.


We must therefore remind candidates that they must remain available to sit exams until Thursday 30 June 2022 should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan.


Result Dates for 2022

Collection of Examination Certificates

If you have not collected your examination certificates from a past examination period, you may arrange to collect these from the school with one day’s prior warning to the Examinations Officer (examination results are in safe storage and are not easily accessible at short notice). We regret that examination certificates cannot be sent by post. We do not take, or keep, copies of examination certificates, therefore if you have already collected your results and have lost your original certificates, you will need to contact the examination boards involved. This usually costs around £40.00 per certificate, so it’s a good idea to keep them in a very safe place once you have collected them!


If you are unable to collect certificates yourself please provide a letter of authorisation for the person collecting on your behalf, they will need to provide a form of ID.


GCSE and equivalent

All students who have produced sufficient coursework to be considered for a grade are entered for the GCSE or equivalent examination, subject to parental authorisation to ensure continued attendance at school and progress in the period between the entry submission and the final assessment.
