Information for Candidates:

Examinations Contingency Plan

We will make every attempt to ensure that external examinations continue to take place as scheduled by the examination boards, and where possible will draft staff into school to conduct exams as timetabled, including where the school is closed to normal lessons. 


In the unlikely event that an external examination has to be cancelled a message will be placed on the school website as early as possible.


The boards do not allow deviations to the timetable, therefore all exam students must make every effort to attend school to sit their exam at the scheduled time. Whilst it is possible to accept students who are delayed please be aware that the JCQ regulations state that the awarding bodies may not mark exam papers if candidates arrive later than one hour after the published start time.
