Please click the links below to view a number of important rules and guidelines issued by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) on behalf of the examination boards, as well as important guidance from the school:

Exam Timetables
Students are advised to regularly check the exams notice board for more information regarding exam timetables.

What if I can’t attend at the correct time?

A friend or family member may collect your results for you, but they must bring with them a note from you to say you authorise them to collect your results.
You can leave a Stamped Addressed Envelope with the Exams Office and your results will be posted on results day.

No results will be given out by telephone under any circumstances.

Post Results Service

Teaching staff will be available on Results Day to help you with any queries that may arise.

If there are reasonable grounds for believing there has been an error in marking, an official review of marking and moderation (ROMM) may be requested by the Centre. (see Exam Appeals Policy).

When the centre does not uphold a ROMM, a candidate may still apply to have an enquiry carried out. However, they will be charged.
Candidates requesting review of their scripts must be aware that their marks, including their overall grade can also be lowered as a result of the enquiry.


Certificates arrive in school about three months after you have received your results and are distributed at special Awards Evenings for Year 11 and Year 13 (date to be confirmed). Year 10 and Year 12 Certificates are kept by the Exams Office to be amalgamated with certificates for the future Year 11 or 13 Awards evening.

Certificates may be collected on behalf of the candidate after the relevant Awards Evening by a third party, provided they have written authorisation to do so. Please contact the Examinations Office in advance of your visit.

Certificates will be retained by the school for one year after the relevant Awards Evening.  Unclaimed certificates will then be destroyed.
Applications for replacement certificates must be made directly to the Awarding Body, there is a charge for this service of approximately £40 per exam board.
