Exam Information


Where to go / Seating plans

Seating arrangements for each examination will be given individually to all students in a pack before the examinations.  At the start of the examination period, daily examination seating plans will be posted on the examination notice board (outside the sports Hall by the fire exit) and also on the sixth form common room window.  Please check carefully each day before you are due to get into line as sometimes, last minute changes to seating plans may be necessary.

What equipment should you bring?

Please make sure your child has the equipment they need to be successful.  This includes spare pens, calculators (where necessary) contained within clear plastic pencil case.  Please ensure that you check with your class teacher on the expectations for each examination
