We have exceeded government expectations with an alternative venue, using thermal temperature detectors, individual isolations rooms along with the mandatory facemasks, hand sanitisers and social distancing.
In addition we continue to use high quality examinations benchmarked on AQA and Edexcel GCSE syllabuses administered under JCQ (Joint for Qualifications) regulations, by trained invigilators and marked by a team of independent markers who have/or currently mark for the exam boards.
We are ensuring the needs of all students are being met safely and well within the required time!
