During the summer term many students will be sitting GCSE exams as usual.  Candidate exam timetables will be sent home with Exam Guidance and information. Also see further information below.

To give our students the best possible chance of success, school opening and closing times will be adjusted on exam days. Further details will follow.

If you have any queries, please ring the school and ask to speak to Vice-Principal, Mr Carl Parkinson or Assistant Principal/SENCo, Gerard Tiernan.

We wish all our students every success in their exams this summer.
