The mock GCSE exams for Year 11 will run from the Monday 12th November 2018 until Thursday 22nd November 2018 with Art and Photography exams between the 6th and the 9th November 2018. The exams will be sat in the hall, as much as possible, to give candidates experience of the process they will have in the summer in their GCSEs. Please can you ensure that your son/daughter is prepared for each exam with the equipment they require, e.g. pen, pencil, rubber, calculator, ruler etc in a transparent pencil case. The exams will be held under the same controlled conditions as the real GCSEs and candidates will be reminded of the rules and regulations at the start of each exam. These are in place to ensure each and every candidate has the best opportunity to achieve their desired grades.
Those students with Access Arrangements will be catered for in support. Students have been given a hard copy of this timetable.

The main building has disabled refuge points on all floors.
These points have an emergency call signal system which is relayed to a light-board in the main office to indicate the position of the disabled person awaiting assistance.
There are two dedicated parking spaces available in the main car park. These are located as close as possible to the main entrance and have ramp access.
