Introduction

If you require any further information or guidance, please contact the Exams Officer, Mrs Catherine Shaw on the above telephone number.

(The JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) also have information for Students.  Log onto their website:  www.jcq.org.uk  for further information of the Rules and Regulations for exams)

Exam Results Days 2018

GCE............................................Thursday 18 August 2018

GCSE ..........................................Thursday 23 August 2018
Please note that students are issued with a "Statement of Results" on these days.  Statements of Results are NOT Exam Certificates.  (Please see Exam Certificates section for information about certificates).

Results Days within school are extremely busy.  It is School Policy that results will not be given over the telephone.

We advise Year 13 students to collect their results in person as the Sixth form team will be on hand to give advice should anyone need it for the UCAS clearing system.

We will accommodate requests for alternative arrangements as outlined below, but these should be arranged before leaving for the Summer break.

  1. Stamped self addressed envelope for results to be posted (this should ideally be A4 sized).
  2. Written authorisation, from the student, for someone else (including parents) to collect their results on the day. This cannot be another student in the year group.

Urgent GCE review of marking can be arranged on GCE results day and/or GCSE results day.  After that only normal reviews can be requested (until 20 September).  After that date no further reviews are possible.

Exam Timetables 

If you require actual exam dates the provisional timetables for all exam sessions can be easily downloaded from the Exam board website (please see Exam Board Contact Details below).

Please note that exams can only be sat on the day timetabled by the Exam Boards.

Exam Certificates

GCSE and GCE Certificates are normally available for collection from School Reception from November onwards.  Please check with School Reception first, to make sure they have arrived from the Exam Boards.

If you are a school leaver and you are not able to collect your certificates in person, we are prepared to post your certificates to you if you supply us with a large stamped addressed envelope (32 cm x 23 cm), but please note that this will be at your own risk.

Alternatively, if school leavers have a sibling still attending school, the certificates can be collected on their behalf, as long as a letter of authorisation is provided.

Exam certificates are an important document and should be kept somewhere safe.  If you misplace or lose your certificates you can only get replacements through the Examining Boards who can charge upto £40 per certificate.

Please note that a requirement of the Examining Boards is that all certificates be returned to them or destroyed, if not collected within 12 months of issue.  We therefore suggest that certificates are collected no later than April of the following year of issue.
