Students may also complete GCSE English Language, GCSE Mathematics and GCSE Numeracy written examinations during the November examination series and GCSE English Literature and Health and Social Care units during the January series.

Individual student examination timetables are distributed as a paper copy during morning registration prior to each examination series, and also email out to families. During the examination period, all students are required to arrive at the examination venue no later than 8:35am for morning sessions and 12:35pm for afternoon sessions.
