Exam Information

The Examinations Office is responsible for the administration and organisation of all aspects of external examinations in accordance with the regulations laid down by their awarding bodies.
This includes submitting entries for exams to meet Exam Board deadlines, organising Access Arrangements for students requiring additional support, coordinating examination rooms and the invigilation required to supervise the students, as well as resolving any problems which may arise beforehand or during the examination sessions. Many answers to students’ queries can be found in the Exams Booklet, but should you have any concerns, please contact Mrs Heap, the Exams Officer.

Exam Timetables

Individual exam timetables will be given to candidates in mid-February.  It is the responsibility of the student to let the Exams Officer know of any errors or omissions on their timetable.

Results Day

GCSE – 24 August 2023

Collection of GCSE results - the latest Results Day information is provided below.


Candidates will receive individual results slips on results day, either

  • in person at the centre from 8am or
  • given to another person, provided written permission has been given by the candidate to release the results and the named person brings in photographic evidence of their ID, or
  • by post to their home address where candidates have requested this and provided a stamped addressed envelope (envelopes are only posted on results day, so will not be received until the day after), or
  • By email to the candidate’s school email address where candidates have requested this. Please note results will be sent by email late morning on results day.
  • Year 10 students can collect their results from 10.00am, unfortunately we cannot email their results, however students will be given them on their return in September. 

The results slip will be in the form of a centre produced document.  Candidates will also receive information regarding the Enquiries about results services (EARs) offered by the exam boards.

Uncollected results slips will then be available for collection from the reception.

Enquiries about results (EARs)

Further information will be available to parents and students near to results day.


Your examination certificates are very important and are evidence of your hard work and school career. If you lose them, they are very expensive to replace, so look after them carefully. Certificates are usually given out during an Awards Evening later in the year, but if you are unable to attend, you may collect your certificates in person from school, or send a note explaining that you give permission for someone else to collect them for you.

Notices to candidates

The Joint Council for Qualifications publishes Notices to Candidates on their website including important guidance on written exams, privacy and social media.
