Exams & Access Arrangements

Examination information can now be found on the Frog System https://frog.skinners-school.org.uk/exams

Important information to be read by ALL candidates in advance of exams, controlled assessments and coursework: http://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/information-for-candidates-documents

Access Arrangements

A number of boys have been given access arrangements (such as extra time) for external examinations, controlled assessments etc.  All affected should already be aware of this. If your son is one of these boys, they must sign a data protection notice to confirm that they consent to personal information being shared with the Exam boards.

A link to the consent form can be found here: http://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/aao-access-arrangements-online/data-protection-notice.

Controlled Assessments

For controlled assessments for Years 10 and 11 - the timetable can be found here.

Examination Certificates

Examination certificates are distributed as soon as they are received by the Exams Office.  We are unable to post these home as they are considered to be a legal document and have to be collected in person and signed for.

Replacement Certificates

If you have lost or misplaced your Exam Certificates, you will need to apply to the relevant exam boards for replacements. Unfortunately, the school does not hold duplicate copies.

Exam boards will not replace lost certificates with further original copies (exceptional circumstances will be considered). Only damaged or destroyed certificates will be replaced and, in these circumstances, the originals must be returned or evidence provided that they have been destroyed (e.g. by fire, theft or flood). Candidates who have lost certificates may apply for a “Certified statement of results” from the relevant awarding body for their own use or request that a confirmation of results be sent to external bodies (employers, etc.). Details may be found on the exam boards’ websites at the following links:
