Important Exam Dates and Information

All the examination dates set outlined in the document that you can download below are external examinations which are set by the exam board. Any students who fail to attend the examination they have been entered for will score 0 for that unit of work. In addition, the school reserve the right to be able to charge for missed exam fees (£30 to £90 per exam).  A full copy of the exam dates and information that is on this page can be downloaded below.

Dates of Examinations

Intervention Days and Weeks

You are fully aware that our staff go the extra mile to support your child and in the run up to exams this commitment is even more evident. Our teachers are passionate in our thinking that intervention has a huge impact on student outcomes and our programme reflects this view.

Your child will already be attending after school intervention and this will be maintained throughout the exam period but we will be adding a number of later evenings, weekends and holiday sessions.

Whilst I cannot say that these sessions are compulsory, what I can say is that students that attended over 90% of interventions last year achieved 1.5 grades higher than those who had attendance below 60%. The difference between a 4 and 5 or 8 and 9 is in your control by attending.

The confirmed dates for you to have available are:
W/C 18th February 2019
W/C 15TH April 2019 & W/C 22nd April 2019
W/C 28th May 2019

There will be some additional revision support sessions on evenings, weekends in between exams. Dates to be confirmed as soon as possible.

Additional dates will be sent to you by text message as soon as possible
