External Exam Dates & Information
JANUARY 2021 EXTERNAL EXAMS - UPDATE
In response to the latest government announcement, examination boards have now confirmed that ALL January examinations will be going ahead as scheduled.
All examinations will take place in our Conference Centre (C1) where enhanced social distancing measures will be in place. Morning examinations will start promptly at 9am and afternoon at 1pm- we expect all students to be in the visitor car park area (outside main reception) 5 minutes before the examination (and no more than 10 minutes before), i.e. 0850-0855 or 1250-1255. Social distancing will be maintained during the entire time and students will need to wear face masks as per normal (however this will not be necessary during the exam).
If your son/ daughter is required to self-isolate, for example a close contact develops symptoms, please do not send them into school. Please email the Examinations Officer, Mrs J Gill (email@example.com), who will be able to pass on this information to the relevant examination board.

DFE CONTINGENCY DATES - Students who miss all exams in one subject
If a student misses all GCSE or A level assessments in a subject due to sickness related to coronavirus (COVID-19), or the need to self-isolate and is unable to access the special consideration process, they will be eligible to sit a single contingency paper. This will take place between 28 June to 16 July 2021 and timetabled to allow at least a 10-day gap after each subject’s final paper in the main series.
