Exam Information

Information / Exam information 2017

It is an important time for Year 11. As they approach their final exams it is important they are feel prepared and informed. In this section we have included the timetable for both the mock exam window and the final Summer exams (provisional) to support them in their revision preparations. 

It is important in order to be successful that the student understand how they will be assessed and on what. For each of their subjects their teachers will be following a set specification and syllabus. These are open and available for everyone to access.

Not only do they show these on their website but they also allow you to access past exam papers, mark schemes and examiners reports to highlight the common areas made by students. These provide invaluable opportunities for students to assess their understanding.

Obviously with different exam boards available for each subject it is likely that your son or daughter will be studying a range across their subjects. To help you navigate your way round we thought it would be useful to create direct links to the subject specific exam boards and their syllabus.

If you have any questions about external exams please feel free to contact us so we can help:

External Guidance


All external exams are governed by the guidance given to schools by the JCQ. Representing the seven largest providers in qualification in the UK they outline the expectations necessary and standards we must uphold as a school. They also outline the rules and regulations that must be upheld by students. These are shown below for your reference.
