Welcome to the Aureus School Exams Office page. On this page, you will find information concerning assessments run through the Exams Office, which includes public exams and internal PPEs (Pre-Public Examinations – also known as “mocks”).
Details provided include items such as: Key Dates, Exam Boards, information documents and policies, as well as a Student Examination Guide which outlines rules and expectations for students during exams.
The Department for Education (DfE) currently intends the Summer 2023 exam series to proceed as normal without any adjustments.
The Exam Boards have published their examination timetables for Summer 2023, details of which can be found below.
Subjects with Non-Examination Assessments (NEAs) components have deadlines which are before written exams. These deadlines can range throughout the entire course, so may be during Year 10 or Year 11. Subject teachers will confirm exact deadlines dates with Year 11 students for their particular subject.
The Exams Office is open in line with the school term and on GCSE Results Day in August. If you have any queries, please contact Mr D Minton (Exams Officer) via the email address or telephone number shown at the top of this page.
