Summer 2022 Examinations for Year 11

This summer’s Year 11 final exams will take place over the period 16 May to 28 June, with a contingency day scheduled for 29 June. The contingency date is scheduled in case there is an event of national or significant local disruption to examinations in the United Kingdom.

The contingency day does not cater for a candidate who is absent for any of their examinations. In this case, the student would need to take these examinations at the next available opportunity (November 2022), should they wish to do so. This will of course depend on what subject(s) or paper(s) they have missed and where they choose to undertake their next stage of education, as these subjects/examinations may not be offered by other centres. Therefore, please plan for your child to be in school up to and including 29 June 2022.

Individual examination timetables will be issued to candidates during the week commencing Monday 4 April 2022.
