The school's policy is to enter students for public examinations where the student has a reasonable prospect of success. Entry fees are paid by the school.
Parents of students who fail to arrive at public examinations, without good cause, are liable for the cost of the entry fees.
If the school believes that an examination result is not a fair reflection of a student's performance, then the school may ask for and pay for a remark. If parents wish for a remark in circumstances in which the school believes that the original mark is likely to be fair, then this may still be arranged, but at parents' expense. If a remark paid for by parents shows an improvement on the original grade, the school will normally reimburse the parents, if the examination board itself does not.
If parents wish their sons or daughters to resit a public examination, the resit fee must normally be paid by the parent.
Summer examination certificates will be available for collection from school from mid November 2012.
If you are at university or working a member of your family can collect them from the school on your behalf.
If you took exams in November 2011 or January 2012 and have not collected your certificates yet please do so as soon as possible.
Any certificates not collected can now be destroyed after one year and you will need to contact the relevant examination boards for a replacement at a cost of approximately £35 per statement of results.
