GCSE examinations commence on Monday 13th May 2024 for Year 11 students.

During the period of examinations, as has been for the duration of Y11, a breakfast snack and drink will be offered to all students in Y11.  This will be available from 08:00 every day until the start of tutor time at 08:30.  It is strongly advised that students take up this offer to ensure a good start to the day in preparation for some of the longer AM exams especially!

Opportunities for booster sessions will also be communicated regularly.  These will be hosted in the main school in the morning sessions prior to each exam.

During the examination period students are expected to arrive at the academy promptly at 08:30 and attend tutor period to get the AM statutory roll call mark.  Directions for the day’s exams will be given at this time.

The PM examinations will start promptly at 13:00 so arrangements will always be made to ensure that this is after a lunch period.  Candidates will always be afforded comfort breaks around these strict national exam times.
