Examinations are an important part of school life, which happen throughout the school year.
When individual 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 and revision
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
- attend any revision sessions being offered by the school
- use revision techniques covered during study skills workshops to make their learning and revision more effective

After the Exams
Students are responsible for making arrangements for receiving their results. This can be done in one of three ways:
- Collected by the student from school on the day given above
- Collected by another person. A letter of authority, signed by the student, must be presented to the school.
- By post if a student is unable to get to the school on results day. The school must be provided with a stamped addressed envelope.
We cannot give out results over the telephone, by text or email.
Collection of Certificates
The Statement of Results which each student receives on results day is only provisional and will not be accepted by colleges and some employers. Exam certificates are the only official proof of results - these are presented 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.
After results day, students may access the post-results services. These are:
- Re-Mark – where a different examiner will mark the script.
- Priority Re-Mark – for Year 13 students only, if a student's university place is at risk. Please note: if a script is re-marked, marks can go down as well as up.
- Photocopy Script Return – to allow a student to see if they may benefit from a re-mark.
- Original Script Return – to help students to make a decision on whether to re-sit the exam next year.
Application forms for post-results services will be available on WisePay following results day. We advise students to discuss these options with their subject teacher and the Exams Officer before applying for one of these services.
All post-results services incur fees which are paid by the student, via WisePay or cheque, and are subject to strict deadlines.
Our full examination results, by subject area, are available to download at the bottom of this page.
