Candidates for exams MUST have the following equipment:
- Several black ballpoint pens
- Calculator (though not permitted in some Maths exams)
- Pencil and ruler
- Any other equipment specifically required for an exam
They MUST NOT bring mobile phones, iPods or MP3/4 players but secure them elsewhere in the school. Any water bottle brought to an exam cannot have writing on it and pencil cases must be see-through.
All cases of Special Consideration must be forwarded to the Exams Officer within 7 days of the last exam in any exam session.
Certificates are available to collect from School Reception from the November following the summer session in which exams were sat. They are only posted out in exceptional circumstances.
A note from the exams officer:
Exams next summer Start and End dates
GCSE – 1st May to 17th June
A Level – 13th May to 25th June
I would not book flights too close to these dates just in case of an unforeseen problem.
Your son will get an individual timetable in early March when the entry process is complete.
Each exam board has its own exam timetables and you can look up the dates yourself for a more detailed picture if you need one.
