EXAM NEWS

January 2024

Mock exams will be taking place, and preparations are under way for completing coursework and Non-exam Assessments before the deadlines.

The exam boards have finalised the Exam times and we have published them below. Please consider this when booking non-emergency appointments. As you can see from the timetable below, these are nationally set exam times which we cannot move, and missing them can mean not being able to get a passing grade if the circumstances do not fall under special dispensation. If you wish to ask more about this, please contact the exams officer Vicky Orman.

If you have any questions please phone Vicky Orman in the office, or email office@fossewayschool.com
