Trial Exam Information Years 7-13

To help prepare students for their External GCSE and A Level examinations, we conduct trial exams in January for Years 11 and 13 under full examination conditions with external invigilators to supervise. In the Summer we run trial exams for Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 using teachers as invigilators. Students are given a personalised copy of their timetable to inform them of the date, subject, location, start time and duration.
