The exam office is located in North School between reception and the Examsmaths department. If you have any questions or queries regarding examinations please do not hesitate to contact Mrs D. Nunn. 

The exam office will be open daily during term time from 8am-4pm Mon-Thur and 8am-3.30pm Friday (Hours may vary during examination sessions). You can find the summer opening hours for the exam office below.

Exam Certificates 

Due to the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we will shortly begin to start shredding unclaimed exam certificates.

The JCQ regulations state that “Centres may destroy any unclaimed certificates by a secure method after holding them for a period of 12 months from the date of issue”.

A record of certificates that have been destroyed will be retained for four years from the date of destruction.

Candidates should be advised that some awarding bodies do not offer a replacement certificate service. In such circumstances the awarding body will issue a Certifying Statement of Results.

All Summer 2019 GCSE/A Level certificates will be available to collect from the exam office from Monday 6th January 2020. Certificates will only be held until Summer 2020, after which they will be destroyed.
