GCSE Grade Factsheet

The Examinations Officer at Beckfoot Thornton is Miss Emma Raywood and she can be contacted by email at elr@beckfootthornton.org or by telephoning school reception on 01274 881082.

Practical Exams, Assessments, Internal Exams and Controlled Assessments take place throughout the school year.

The External Exam Series are timetabled for November and May/June.

All students receive a personalised Statement of Entry for External exams indicating their Exam entries, via their Form Tutors, which they have to check carefully, sign and provide a mobile contact number. When these are returned, the students then receive their personalised Examination Timetable along with an  information booklet. This booklet explains all the rules and regulations students must follow when sitting their exams.

It is vital that all students arrive for their exams on time, with all their equipment and fully prepared.

We appreciate that exams can be a stressful time for students. If any student does have any queries or concerns they can see Miss Raywood in the Data Office at break, lunchtime or after school.
