Welcome to the Aureus School Exams Office page. You will find information concerning both public exams and internal assessments (Pre-Public Examinations -PPEs – also know as “mocks”) including Key Dates, Exam Boards and the Student Examination Guide which outlines rules and expectations for students during exams.
The Department for Education (DfE) intends the Summer 2022 exam series to proceed as normal, but with a contingency plan in place should this not be possible.
The Exam Boards have published their examination timetables, with GCSEs taking place between 16 May and 27 June 2022.
Please note that Wednesday 29 June 2022 has been designated as the Examinations Contingency Day. All students must be available on this day to sit exams, should there be disruption to timetabled exams on a National or local level.
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.
