Calday Grange Grammar School is a large examination centre. Our students sit a wide range of public examinations from various public examinations boards. In addition to this, students can also sit specific university entrance examinations and STEP papers.
Examinations are usually conducted in the school hall and gymnasium. The main examination periods are from early May until late June each year. Results days are usually in the last two weeks of August each year. As well as running and organising public examinations, the team in the Examinations Office are responsible for the construction and running of internal examination timetables.
In this section you will find useful links to public and school examinations policies. Also included are published letters to parents concerning the school’s arrangements for examinations, as well as any other useful information regarding public and internal examinations.
The Public Examinations Handbook is a useful document for parents and candidates regarding examinations and can normally answer many queries which you may have about the public examinations. This is issued as a yellow hard copy to students in October/November for the following summer series.
(the regulations in the 2019/20 Handbook continue to apply to the Autumn 2020 examination series)
In the May before their public examinations, candidates are also given an examination briefing reminding them of the arrangements for the exams. A copy of the slides will be made available here.
