GCSE Examinations


For details regarding the exams timetable, controlled assessements, written exams, and information on the warnings given to students during exams please see the links opposite.

There are several examination sessions (series) throughout 2016, for both Year 11 AND Year 10 students. Individual timetables will be sent to each student before the start of the session if they have been entered, once the exam boards have confirmed each date.

For obvious reasons, parents should not book holidays during term time, as controlled assessment (coursework) examinations take place throughout the year in Years 11, 10 and 9, and GCSE examinations take place for Years 11 and 10 in May and June 2016.
