FORTHCOMING EXAMS 2018-19

The following dates are provisional, and therefore subject to change. However, they will give parents an approximate idea of when exams are scheduled for their children for the academic year 2018-19. Detailed exam timetables for each year-group will appear on this page as soon as they are finalised.

Parents are reminded that they should not make plans to take their children out of school during term-time, and that medical appointments etc should on no account be arranged when pupils have exams. Exams cannot be rescheduled to fit around other commitments, and missing an exam is likely to have a negative effect on a pupil’s academic progress. Pupils who miss an in-school exam (for whatever reason, including illness) will not be allowed to take the exam on another day or at another time.
