Summer 2024 Examinations

The Joint Council for Qualifications has produced a timetable that says GCSE exams will start on 10 May until 26 June.

Contingency days set by JCQ are:

  • 6th June – afternoon
  • 13th June – afternoon
  • 26th June – all day


Examination success unlocks the doors to many opportunities – work, further study or a combination of both. It is critical for students to develop independent habits. To support this, the Academy subscribes to a number of online resources

A variety of revision and support is offered to our students which will help them fulfil their potential. We encourage all students and parents/guardians to liaise with staff in order to give students the best preparation possible for their exam(ination)s.

All students need to ensure that they have read the JCQ guidance below prior to sitting their examinations.
