The Examinations Office is responsible for the administration and organisation of all aspects of external examinations in accordance with the regulations laid down by the awarding bodies. This includes submitting entries for exams to meet Exam Board deadlines, organising Access Arrangements for students requiring additional support, coordinating examination rooms and invigilation required to supervise the students, as well as resolving any problems which may arise beforehand or during the examination sessions. Many answers to students' queries can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions section, but should a student still have concerns, they are welcome to visit the Exams Office in Kingston.
Your examination certificates are very important and are evidence of your hard work and school career. If you lose them, they are very expensive to replace, so look after them carefully. Certificates are generally given out during an Awards Evening for GCSEs and A Levels, but if you are unable to attend, you may collect your certificates in person, or send a note explaining that you give permission for someone else to collect them for you.
Summer 2012 GCSE certificates will be available for collection from the main school reception from Wednesday 12 December 2012. Please note that if you are unable to collect the certficates yourself, you must send a note with another person authorising them to collect them on your behalf and they must also have photographic ID with them.
