Examination Subjects on offer at KS4

All students are entered for public examinations at the end of Year 11 in those subjects, where their performance during the course justifies an expectation of success.  If a student is entered for an examination but then fails to produce adequate coursework for assessment or misses an examination without good reason, the cost of the entry will be charged to the parents. 

Where a student’s performance in a subject does not, in the school’s view, justify an examination entry, the parents may request a private entry at their own expense.  Should the candidate achieve a graded result, the cost of the entry will be refunded upon request.
