An amended version of the mock exam timetable is now available; please see the Exams page for more information. Individual timetables and clash information will be given to students.

Year 11 students will be sitting mock exams in all their GCSE examination subjects from Thursday 25 February 2016 to Friday 4 March 2016. The only exception to this is art, graphics and textiles students who will have a two hour GCSE exam preparation session in the week following the mock exam period.

During the mock exam period students need only attend school for their exam.

For students who come in on buses, or for any student who wishes to revise within school, the LRC will be available and, if necessary, additional study rooms will be made available.

If you wish your son or daughter to remain in school when they are not sitting their exams, please e-mail their name to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will ask these students to register in the LRC each period they are not in an exam.

Year 11 students must wear school uniform for their exams.

  • Year 13 Mock Exams are from Monday 7 March 2016 to Friday 11 March 2016

For each year group their mock exam period will be a period of study leave: students need only come into school for their exams.

All BTEC lessons are, however, continuing as normal and BTEC students should continue to come in for their lessons. BTEC students who are also taking A levels may take the morning before an afternoon exam as study leave. For students who come in on buses, or for any student who wishes to revise within school, the LRC and Sixth Form study area will be available and, if necessary, additional study rooms will also be made available. The Sixth Form Café and Café extension will also be open.
