Exam Information - January - Easter 2024

Although this may seem like one of the quieter period for exams within school as there are only a few LIVE exams and PPEs running in this part of the year, all students concerned were made aware by email in the first week back. We are, however, busy liaising with the subject teachers, confirming exam entries and tiers, where necessary, ready for the Summer Series.


All students sitting exams this Summer will receive an email from the Exams Team by the end of January with their exam entries, this will outline all the subjects that will be sat in the Summer. This will give all students and their families the opportunity to confirm all the details and ask any questions to the subject teachers if there are queries. 


Once details have been confirmed by all parties, the Exams Team will make the entries for the Summer, and after the Easter break the Exams Team will issue an exam timetable to all students that will sit exams this Summer. All practical assessments will take place in April/early May and all students involved will be notified before the Easter break.


Summer exam dates that students will be expected to be available are:

Thursday 9 May 2024 to Wednesday 26 June 2024 (inclusive)


Please find the general Summer Timetable in the link below. This shows the sessions that the Exam Boards have scheduled the exams for throughout May and June. Please be aware that those highlighted in green are AS and A Level exams and those highlighted in pink are GCSE exams.


Summer Timetable


All exam dates and times are set out by the Exam Boards. We do not have the ability to change the details for exams. This means that if students miss an exam without good reason, then this will negatively impact on their results.


If you have any questions regarding the Summer exams, please email either Mr Morris, Exams Officer, or Miss Jackson, Exams Administrator, at the email addresses at the top of the page.

Information on Summer 2023 exam performance at GCSE and A-Level at The Corsham School can be found in the link below:

Performance - The Corsham School

Certificate Information Summer 2023

Summer 2023 Certificates

These will be sent to the school, from the exam boards, in late 2023.  As such, they will be issued to students in early 2024. 

Y11 and Y13 leavers 2021/2022

Certificates have now all been posted by Second Class ‘Signed For’ delivery, to the student’s home address. All certificates posted by ‘Signed For’ delivery will have to be signed for at the point of delivery. If they are unable to deliver the certificates, they will be returned to the school in due course.

Examination Certificates Prior to Summer 2023

Please email Mr Morris or Miss Jackson, who will check if the school still has copies of your exam certificates and advise accordingly.  If the school does still have copies of your certificates, then the three options for collection will be the same as those listed above.

Lost Certificates

Each Exam Board has a different system for dealing with lost certificates. You should not assume that you will be able to buy replacements, so please keep them safe!  Any applications for replacements must be made by the candidate and cannot be made by the school on the candidate’s behalf.

It is becoming increasingly important that you keep your original certificates safe to show future further education establishments or future employers.  We can provide you with a letter (on headed paper) confirming your grades and signed by a member of the Examinations Team.  This may satisfy an employer who has asked for confirmation of your results.
