Exam Timetables







Permission to leave site during examinations

As you will already know, the compulsory need for students to be in school at all times finishes for Year 11 on Friday 24 May. After half term, this means that students, if they wish, may study at home during the times they are not in an exam.

In order for your child to be able to study at home we require all students to have parental permission to leave the school after an exam or revision, or to arrive at school later in the day for an afternoon exam or revision session. 

  • If students have an exam in the morning and the afternoon, they must remain on site between these exams.
  • Once a student has left the school site, they will not be able to return to catch the school buses.

It is the responsibility of the parent/carer to make suitable arrangements for the collection of students after an exam or bringing students to school later prior to an exam.

If a student does not have a completed form, then we will not be able to allow that student to leave school until the form has been completed.

If there are any changes to the permissions given on the completed form, please email with the change in arrangements for that day to avoid unnecessary disruption to both yourselves and your child.

Pre-Public Examinations

Pre-Public examinations (PPE) are mock examinations in a subject.  These usually take place for Year 11 in November and for Year 13 in January, prior to the Summer examinations.  The PPEs provide feedback to students and identify targets to work on to enable them to secure the best possible grade.  We have a PPE Results Afternoon in January for Year 11 to support the importance of these exams and give students an insight in to the exam results day experience.

PPEs usually take place in June and July of Year 10 and Year 12 to support students with their progress in a subject and provide curricular targets for the students to work on over the Summer to support them to make strong progress.
