Examination dates

When our internal exam timetables are finalised, we send home personal exam information with students which will give them all the information they need to get to the right exam at the right time. In addition we make available our summary timetables for external exams on this website. However, students and parents should refer to students’ personal exam information for precise details.

Exam Preparation Tips

To prepare for exams, students should:

  • effectively organise their time between now and the end of the examination period and adopt a comprehensive revision programme for study at home
  • highlight on their mock examination timetable the examinations which they will be taking to avoid the possibility of missing one and keep it in a prominent place at home
  • revise at home or quietly in the school library, or one of the allocated revision rooms (a list of which will be posted daily on the library door) when not in an exam
  • sign in at the library if revising at school
  • use revision techniques covered during study skills workshops to make their learning and revision more effective
