Tests and examinations have always been a feature of secondary school life, and crop up at various times for each year group. Year 11 trial GCSE examinations take place in December and public examinations take place in May and June. Other important coursework deadlines, module tests and AS examinations take place at different points in the year.

Parents are advised to check dates with the school before planning holidays or other periods away from home so that important dates for assessments are not missed.  Any loss of school time is highly undesirable and is bound to affect students’ progress.

Exam Revision 

We have a 'Homestudy' page under the Students menu, which lists a number of homework and exam revision web sites as well as various exam revision techniques compiled by the school.  We hope students find them useful in revising and performing during their exams to give them the best chance of being successful.
