Academic Calendar and Events

Exams and assessments are conducted throughout the academic year. 

Main Exams 
Main exams are conducted in January, May/June for BTEC and Cambridge Technicals and May and June for A level subjects.

The links to all exam boards and their current (provisional) timetables for exams and non – exam assessments are below:

Once students have been entered into their exams, a timetable detailing the subject, paper entered into and also exam time and date will be issued. 

Non-exam Assessments 
The dates for non-exam assessments are dependent on the course. There could be a specific ‘exam window’ for example 3/5/21 – 7/5/21 or there may be a longer period to undertake assessments. Teachers will keep you informed of the key dates relevant to your subject.

Mock exams take place in both November and March each academic year. (This is subject to change)
