Please click for a list of awarding bodies by subject.

All qualification exams and assessments and Year 11 Internal exams are carried out under the Joint Council for Qualification (JCQ) regulations.

Any exam enquiries by parents/carers can be emailed to for the attention of Mr Tate - Exams, Information & Office Manager. 


All external exams for the summer 2021 series have been cancelled by the Secretary of State for Education.
After consultation with all key stakeholders earlier this year, Ofqual published the document Decisions on how GCSE, AS and A level grades will be determined in summer 2021 on the 25th February. We will communicate with all our Year 11 students and Parents/Carers in due course. In the meantime it is vital that all students return from the 8th March, when details are confirmed, to continue their studies and complete work.  
Ofqual have produced the following document which outlines the process for summer 2021 

GCSE Grade Information Sheet - Summer 2021 

Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 would usually have internal 'end of year assessments' at the end of the summer term. However, dates have yet to be agreed following the delay to GCSE exams for summer 2021.

Non-examined Assessment (NEA)

Any work, either written or practical, that is externally set by the awarding body and internally assessed in school is classified as a non-examination assessment. The NEA is used by an awarding body to assess essential knowledge and skills that cannot be evidenced through a written examination. All NEA ongoing work will still count towards the overall grade awarded. It is therefore vital that all students continue to complete their work as directed
