External examinations for year 11-13 commence Thursday 7th January 2016, through to Tuesday 19th January.The Headteacher’s commitment is that if there are adverse weather conditions, if at all possible, the school will open for examinations, even if the remainder of the school is closed. If in doubt on the day, phone the school on 01656 774100. Therefore, all pupils with examinations should make every effort to attend on time, (ie 30 minutes before the scheduled start for GCSE’s and 15 minutes before the scheduled start for A Levels). Where candidates are late arriving, normal examination late arrival procedures will be followed. If attending the examination is not possible for any reason, you must phone the school as soon as possible.
