Examinations – Protocols & Boards
Examinations and continuous assessment obviously play an important part in the academic careers of our students. They support us in measuring progress and ultimately, reflect students’ ability. In years 10 – 13 students are entered for GCSE, GCE, BTEC and other vocational qualifications with various Awarding Bodies.
Government changes to the exam system means that all exams in school will be going through a transition stage over the next few years, with the new AS levels being de-coupled from A levels and GCSE qualifications grades changing from 9 – 1 rather than A* - G.
Up-to-date and subject specific information can be found via the Awarding Body websites:-
