Summer 2019 Exams - Contingency Day Letter

Summer 2019 Exam Timetable


Exam Results Days 2018

A-Level Results Day is on Thursday, 16th August 2018.
GCSE Results Day is on Thursday, 23rd August 2018.

Results can be collected from the Main Hall between 10.00am and 12 Noon.

If you are unable to collect the results in person you can arrange for a friend or relative to collect but please ensure they have a letter authorising them to collect your results on your behalf.
Results cannot be given over the phone or via email. Results not collected will be posted to the home address.


Exam Certificates

The school is required to retain Exam Certificates for a minimum of one year after they are issued. In fact, they are kept for a much longer period but, due to lack of space, they have to be destroyed after a number of years. If you have taken exams in previous years and have not collected your certificates please contact the Exams Office to check if they are still available.

Questions and Answers

Report to the Exams Office and if nobody is there report to the Main Office.  Once we have the message that you have arrived it is usually possible to admit you into the examination room. However, if you are over one hour late to an  exam it is unlikely that the exam boards will accept your paper. Please try to  avoid being late by leaving home extra early and also check your timetables on a  daily basis – forgetting an exam is not a reasonable excuse!

Special consideration can be applied for if something has seriously affected your performance ON THE DAY of the exam. Reasons for application are bereavement (if a close relative or friend has passed away close to the exam), injury or illness (you would USUALLY need a doctor’s note).


If, after the exam, you think that you have a good reason for applying for Special Consideration you must see the Exams Officer IMMEDIATELY or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Let the Exams office know as soon as possible. Public/external exams must be taken on the day published – you cannot take it at a later date.

If you are too  unwell to sit the paper you should first inform the Exams Office at the earliest  opportunity.

You must get a note from your GP; it may then be possible that we  can submit an application for special consideration.

If you have a minor  illness, please inform the Exams Office – it may be possible for us to find you  somewhere else to sit your exam if you cannot cope with being in the main hall. 

If you have a contagious illness, please let us know as soon as possible as we  may need to find a separate room for you.

Please make sure you are familiar with the location of the Exams Office. It would help with exam planning if you notify the Exams Officer of any problem prior to the exam; letting me know at 9.00am on the day of an exam that you have broken an arm the day before or have a contagious illness will not allow sufficient time for a contingency plan!


My direct line, for emergencies, is: 01795 542445


Hopefully, the above should help in the case of most problems but if there is anything I haven’t covered or any other question you need to ask, please email me or visit the Exams Office.


Mrs H Beaumont
Exams Officer
