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

As the students embark upon the examined sections of their curriculum, it can be very helpful for parents/carers to know what will be delivered in each of the courses.


Below is a list of specification links for each examined course.


Specification Links Year 11


Specification Links Year 13


Each specification gives details of the course structure and the content that will be covered during the time that the qualification is studies.


Please be aware that the content may be delivered in a different order to that published and the examinations will not cover the entire specification, however, the published factual content and skills give a crucial starting point for revision.

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 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.
