- 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.

Exam timings – Summer 2018
GCSE Exams will start Tuesday 8th May and run until Friday 22nd June
AS and A level exams will start Monday 14th May and run until Tuesday 26th June
Specific timetables for the boys will not be available until after the entries process is completed in February 2018 but the provisional timetables are available to download at the bottom of this page.
Procedure in case of late / delayed buses:
Candidates who arrive within one hour of the published starting time for an examination, which lasts an hour or more, will sit the paper and be allowed the full time allotted.
If candidates arrive after the first hour they will still sit the exam and an appeal will be made by the school to the awarding body to accept the work.
*Please note that the start time for morning exams is 9:00am. Students should make sure that they arrive at The Blake Theatre by 8:50am in order that they are ready for their morning exams.*
Each pupil will be given an individual timetable by Monday 13th March. Parents will receive an extra copy in the Easter mail out letter. If there are any concerns or questions the pupil should come to see Mr Pearson, once he has his individual timetable, and before the Easter holidays start.
