Welcome to the Exams Office

Exam Preparation

Public exams can be a stressful time for students and parents/carers and it is important that all those involved are as well informed as possible. The school will make every effort to ensure that our students receive the best possible preparation for their exams, that the administrative arrangements run smoothly, and that exams are conducted in a way that will cause as little stress as possible and help our students achieve their best.

Candidate’s personal data will be collected from registered examination centres in the context of examination entries and/or certification claims.  If you would like further information about this, please click here.

Pupils use the internet daily, however, you must consider what you say.  Your comments may lead to an investigation for malpractice, so it is important that you read this document to make sure you are not breaking the rules.

We have included some useful information here together with the official Exam Board notices. Please don't hesitate to contact us during school hours if you have any queries.
