We are unable to facilitate the collection of exam certificates at this time. Once the current lockdown restrictions have eased, we will contact students who were awarded qualifications in summer 2020 to inform them of the arrangements. We are not able to post certificates.

Year 10 GCSE
With the introduction of the new linear style GCSE examinations, Year 10 students sit the majority of their examinations at the end of Year 11. Students studying Cambridge Nationals (ICT) will have examinations in Year 10.

Year 11 GCSE Examinations
Examinations are held in May / June and are the conclusion of a their secondary education. Students will be prepared for these examinations via their tutors, subject teachers and by way of the Mock Examination.

Year 12 and 13 GCE (A level) Examinations
Examinations and resits are held in May / June each year. 

ALL examinations are externally assessed and undertaken under strict rules and guidelines. Students are provided with advice and guidance on preparation and conduct. Additionally a Handbook is provided for the benefit of students which will outline preparation and examination conduct.

Controlled Assessment / Coursework Assessment
Some subjects have Controlled Assessments or coursework assessments in addition to written examinations which will be taken prior to any written examination – please contact your subject teacher for more information.

Examination Entrance Fees
Students entering for external examinations at the end of their courses normally have the necessary fees paid by the College from the budget delegated by the Local Authority. Candidates who enter examinations other than at the end of a College course will normally be expected to pay their own entry fee. Likewise any resit fees are also charged. Fees for GCSEs are approximately £40.00 per GCSE. Fees for GCE are approximately £80 - £120 per GCE.
