Exams Information

Public exams can be a stressful time for students and parents/carers and it is important that all those involved are as well informed as possible. The school will make every effort to ensure that our students receive the best possible preparation for their exams and that the administrative arrangements run smoothly to help our students achieve their best.

The NHS have issued some helpful information on helping your child cope with exam stress, click here to view.

We have included some useful information together with the official Exam Board notices below that you can download. Please don’t hesitate to contact us during school hours if you have any queries.

exam certificates

Examination Certificates
Exam certificates are published by exam boards in the November / March following the summer or winter examinations.

Once all certificates are received into school these will then be posted to students via signed for postage with the Royal Mail. For students who are still attending school the certificates will be kept in school for them to collect from the Exams office.

Students should expect to receive certificates by the 2nd week in December or April, depending on which exam season they are waiting for.

It is very important to keep exam certificates safely and securely stored. In future years, employers and Institutions of Further Education will ask to see them and if lost, it can be a costly and lengthy process to replace them.

Neither Larkmead School or the Examination Board is able to provide replacement certificates once they are lost. However, the original Examining Board will be able to provide a replacement Certified Statement of Results at a cost of approximately £40 per subject/statement
