Results day - 22 August 2024

JCQ and government departments for education have agreed on Wednesday 26th June 2024 as a ‘contingency day’ for examinations. Additionally, JCQ have two contingency afternoons on Thursday 6th and Thursday 13th June 2024. These days are to be used in the event of National or significant local disruption to examinations.

Therefore, as a centre we remind candidates that they must remain available up to and including the contingency day on Wednesday 26th June 2024, should an awarding body needs to invoke its contingency plan.

External Examinations Guidance

We will make every attempt to ensure that External Examinations continue to take place as scheduled by the Examination boards, and where possible will draft staff into school to conduct exams as timetabled, including where the school is closed to normal lessons. This includes occasions where the Local Education Authority announces that all schools are closed. In the unlikely event that an external examination has to be cancelled a message will be placed on the school website as early as possible. The boards do not allow deviations to the timetable, therefore all exam students must make every effort to attend school to sit their exam at the scheduled time. Whilst it is possible to accept students who are delayed please be aware that the JCQ regulations state that the Awarding Bodies may not mark exam papers if candidates arrive later than one hour after the published start time. The Exam Awarding Bodies do not grant any special consideration for students who fail to turn up for their exams.
