    It is our aim to make exams as straightforward and as stress free as we can. If you have any queries about your child’s examinations then please contact our Examinations Officer, Alison Wilkinson on 01325 463383, or email her below.



    Internal Examinations

    Internal examinations take place at different times of year for different year groups. Pupils are given a timetable well in advance to allow them to plan their revision time carefully.

    External Examinations

    Practical examinations and controlled assessments take place throughout the year and details are provided to our students, where applicable, by their subject teachers.

    For external examinations, all pupils are issued with a personal timetable along with a copy of the examinations booklet explaining the rules and regulations for sitting exams. We know this is a stressful time for students and staff endeavour at all times to provide on-going support. That said, we expect all students to arrive in good time for their exams, fully prepared and with all the equipment they need.

    Results Day

    The dates and procedures for GSCE and A level results will be issued to students in advance. Results are given out in person in the School Library from 9am on the appointed day. No results will be given out by telephone or email. Boarding students who live overseas or out of the area should speak to the Examinations Officer beforehand to make special arrangements for receiving their results.

    Candidates who wish to nominate another person to collect their results on behalf (for example a parent or other family member) must notify the Examinations Officer in writing beforehand. Those who don’t collect their results on the day will be sent their results by post, usually sent out the following day.
