Exam Information

The table below shows the dates and times when Year 11 students at Southway will be taking exams this summer. A letter outlining timings and final arrangements will be given out to all students and text messages will be sent to parent/carers each day to remind of times and expectations. Where students are transported to Southway by taxi then timings and arrangements will be made and communicated with mainstream schools as well as parent/ carers.

What to do if you are ill on the day of an exam

If you are ill and are unable to attend an exam it is vital that you follow the advice below.

Telephone the centre first thing in the morning to inform us that you are unwell and unable to attend.

If you feel unwell, but are still able to travel we suggest you attend the exam. We can then assess the situation in person. In most cases it is better to take the exam if you can.

Whether you attend or not, you should obtain a note from your doctor detailing your symptoms and illness. We can use this to apply for special consideration from the Examination Board/s. The Board will look at this in conjunction with your other exam marks and it may enable them to adjust your mark and grade accordingly.

Please be aware that if you do not attend an exam without a valid reason, it is possible that you will be charged for that exam.

The telephone number is: 0113 336 7772 and ask for Mr A Collins (Deputy Headteacher KS4).

GCSE Results Day will be 25 August 2022. Students will be provided with arrangements for the day before they finish Year 11.
