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.

Exam Contingency Day – Wednesday 24th June 2020

Wednesday 24 June 2020 has been set aside as the contingency day for this year’s summer examinations.  This means that all exam candidates must be available to sit exams from the date of their first exam until Wednesday 24 June 2020.

Exam Policies

Students and parents should be aware of the Highworth Warneford Internal Appeals policy and Enquiries about Results policy.  A full list of examination policies can be found on the Policies page.

Exam Results Summer 2020

OFQUAL have published further guidance about how GCSE and other exam grades will be awarded this academic year. The attached letter below gives the relevant details. The process is as expected and should give added reassurance to those students with summer exam entries who have been waiting for news about this.  Andy Steele, 3 April 2020.
