Exam Information

The examination success that the school enjoys is down to the hard work of students and staff alike. All students are entered for public examinations in Key Stage 4, with the students being thoroughly prepared through a whole set of mock and internal testing that is carried out throughout their time at Warneford.

Examination timetabling and entries are managed by Mrs Gibson in the Exams Office. We will always endeavour to publish examination timetables as early as possible to keep students and parents well informed. Students will be given a statement of entry as confirmation of the exams they are entered for, followed by a personalised examination timetable. Students should also check the exam noticeboard, in the Dining Hall, to check for final arrangements including details of specific equipment that they will need for each examination.

JCQ Regulations

Warneford rigorously follows the guidelines and regulations provided by the JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications CIC) when conducting public examinations.

You will find below a variety of ‘Information for Candidate’ documents which are compulsory reading for all Warneford examination candidates.

Exam Policies

Students and parents should be aware of the Highworth Warneford Internal Appeals policy and Complaints and Appeals policy. School polices relating to Safeguarding, Data Protection, SEN and Equality & Accessibility can be found on the Policies Page of our website. A full list of examination policies can be found below.
