Numeracy & Literacy Exams - Information for parents & carers.

All pupils in Years 7-11 sit examinations as appropriate. In Year 11 all pupils sit mock examinations during the Autumn Term. The school prepares all pupils to enter for public examinations.

Public Examinations

Last year’s results are distributed when the Government Tables of Examinations results are published. Each year the majority of our Year 13 students continue their studies at Universities and Colleges of Further Education.

General Examination Information

Exams Years 10 - 13

If a pupil has studied a subject and been entered on an examination, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure they attend school and sit it.

Should a pupil miss the examination without a justifiable reason (agreed by the Headteacher) the entry fee must be paid by the parent.


The results sheets you receive on Results Day are NOT your actual certificates.

If you have any queries about your results, please contact your subject teacher as soon as possible.

Collection dates for GCSE and A Level certificates will be posted on this website. When applicable, collections can be made from the school reception from this date during term-time mornings only please.

Good Exam Nutrition

When you're busy revising and thinking about your exams, it's easy to forget about eating healthily and to just reach for the nearest piece of food.

Eating properly is just as important as revising properly. It can actually help you to revise better.

Like revision, eating healthily should start well before your exam but – also like revision – it's never too late to start!
