Examinations are an important part of school life, which happen throughout the school year.

Examinations

Following consultation, Ofqual and JCQ have announced a series of adaptations for the summer 2022 examinations, which are summarised below.

  • students taking GCSEs in English literature, history and geography will not need to cover the usual range of content in the exams – the exam boards have published information on their websites on how this will work for each of their specifications in these subjects.
  • students taking GCSEs in all other subjects will be given advance information about the focus of the content of the exams to support their revision
  • students taking AS and A levels will be given advance information about the focus of the content of the exams to support their revision
  • students taking GCSE mathematics will be given in their exams copies of formulae they would in other years have to memorise
  • students taking GCSE physics and combined science will be given in their exams a sheet covering all the equations they might need to apply in the exams

The advance information for GCSE and AS and A levels will be published no later than 7 February 2022.

After the Exams

If you have any queries regarding the summer results or the autumn exam entries please do not hesitate to email our Examinations Officer. Please send a message with a contact number and we will contact you at the earliest opportunity to discuss any queries.

  • The Statement of Results, which each student receives on results day, is only provisional and may not be accepted by colleges and some employers. Exam certificates are the only official proof of results – these are sent to the school during the Autumn Term and presented to students on Speech Day. If a student does not return to the Sixth Form, or does not attend Speech Day, certificates may then be collected from school. A friend or relative can collect them on behalf of a student, but must bring a letter of authority, signed by the student.
