Like them or loathe them, exams are an important aspect of every child's education. All students will study courses that lead to a qualification whether that is a GCSE, a BTEC or another kind of qualification and all will have to sit an exam to complete the course.
We want to ensure that every child is as well prepared as possible before they sit their exams at the end of Year 11 and so we give them lots of practice. All year groups have end of year exams, which are held in examination conditions, as though they were the real thing. It is important that students learn from an early age how to revise effectively and learn some of the techniques that will ensure they answer exam questions correctly.
We have an excellent examinations coordinator and team of invigilators who ensure that all exams, whether internal or external, are managed well and are compliant with Examination Board Regulations.
The large majority of students will sit their exams in the main examination hall; a few students with special requirements will sit their exams in a separate room where the appropriate support will be provided. It is the decision of the examination boards, not the school's decision, as to whether a student is able to benefit from examination support.
If you have any questions about examinations please contact Mrs A Als-McClean, Examinations Officer.
