Internal Examinations

Each year group (except Year 7) have a week of examinations during the course of the academic year. Information and timetables are shared with pupils via tutors and subject teachers. The examination week is part of a four week window, where pupils focus on:

  • revision skills
  • examination technique and
  • responding to feedback 

External Examinations

Dates for external public examinations are published on the calendar section of our website when available.  For the summer examination series, students are issued with a personal timetable prior to the Easter break.  Please contact the school immediately if a student is not able to attend an exam; medical or other evidence may be required.
