On this page you will find useful information about exam preparation and expectations, as well as key exam dates. For details of our exam results please see our Exam Results page.


Supporting Your Child During Exam Time

As the exam season approaches for Years 11 and 13, parents can find some useful guidance on how to support their children via these online links:

Childline Parents guide to support - Exam Time

Childline Beat exam stress

Exam BoardSupporting your child at exam time

NHS Coping with exam stress

Student Mind Exam stress - Key to your success

OCR - Supporting Your Child At Exam Time , produced by OCR, one of the awarding bodies.


Exam expectations

School Uniform

All students, including Year 11 students, MUST wear full school uniform when attending school for revision classes and examinations.
Any students who come to school not in uniform will be asked to go home and change. They will not be allowed on school premises.

Exams Equipment

Students must make sure they are properly equipped for every exam. You should bring two black ball-pens, a pencil, eraser,
sharpener and any other writing or Mathematics equipment needed for your exams. Check with your teacher if you think you will need
any specialist equipment.

Awarding Bodies

The main four awarding bodies we use for GCSE and A Level exams are AQA, Pearson EdexcelOCR and WJEC. You can get useful
information on the exams process from their websites and all will allow you to download free copies of past exam papers. Their websites
are:
When looking for past papers you should be aware that the awarding bodies refer to A Level papers as GCE - do not confuse this with
GCSE which are the exams students do in Year 10 and 11. You may need to search within different GCSE date categories to find the
subject you are looking for. Every subject has a course code and each paper has a component code - you will find it helpful to have this
code to help you identify the correct exam papers. You will find it on your child's exam timetable under Component.

Ofqual Exams Information

OFQUAL is the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation. Their website contains useful information for students and
parents/carers on the exams process at www.ofqual.gov.uk. In particular you may find the following links useful:

Exam Regulations

There are very strict rules about public exams which are enforced by the awarding bodies. You can  download copies of the notices via
