All students at Key Stage 4 follow courses leading to certification in public examinations.
In order to be entered, students are expected to:
have a satisfactory attendance record;
meet coursework and homework deadlines;
sit the mock examination, practical exams and/or modular tests;
comply with school and examination board requirements.
All students are entered for GCSE, BTEC and other subject-specific examinations, including tier of entry, in consultation with subject teachers, Curriculum Leaders and with parents/carers.
If a student has worked hard to complete all work applicable to the course, entry for an examination will normally be automatic at the appropriate level. The level at which a student is entered is ultimately the responsibility of the School.
