This year we decided to try to get all exams into one week to minimise disruption to year 11 and their curriculum. They have been extremely mature with regards to the start of their exams and as such we would like to recognise how responsibly they have behaved.

We know that they have worked extremely hard in preparing for them and we understand that scheduling all their exams into one week has been tough on them. Therefore we will be allowing students to leave after their final exam on Friday.

There are a small number of students who are taking an external exam on Friday and it is essential that these students remain in school since this cannot be rescheduled. We are very pleased at how seriously year 11 have taken these exams and we look forward to them returning on Monday 15th January refreshed and ready for the next phase.
