Rivington & Blackrod High Schools approach to examination is one in which the students are put first. We aim to provide all students with appropriate levels of preparation, support and environments conducive to effective examination practice.
For this reason there is a rigorous system of mock examination throughout Year 11, 12 and 13 and all year groups will be given the opportunity to sit mock exams/assessments in a formal setting to ensure they are fully prepared for their actual examinations.
On this page you will find relevant guidance and information for students and parents in terms of examinations. This page will be updated throughout the year to ensure it remains relevant and up-to-date to what students are preparing for at any particular time.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding anything to do with examinations please contact the exams department at firstname.lastname@example.org
JCQ Information for Candidates
Please see below for our Summer 2024 Results guidance document which contains all the information you need to know regarding results collection, post results services available and appeals.
When you come into school to collect your results you will be asked to sign to confirm you have collected them. You will also be asked to tick one of three columns to state if you are happy for the school to access your marked script. This is as per Appendix B on the Results Day Guidance Document. There are a number of reasons why we may need to access a copy of your script. This can be to assist with a review of marking if required and also as teaching staff may like to access your script for teaching and learning purposes.
The exam results days for summer 2024 are as below and all results can be collected from the school sports hall:-
KS5 - Y12 & Y13 - A Level/L3 BTEC/Cambridge Technical/L3 Criminology – Thursday 15th August 2024
Results can be collected from 8.00am
KS4 – Y11 - GCSE/L2 BTEC/Cambridge National/NCFE – Thursday 22nd August 2024
Results can be collected from 9.00am
If you are not available to collect your exam results they will be sent to your school e-mail at the end of the day on the results day. If you would like someone to collect the results on your behalf please complete and return the form below. The person who collects will need to bring appropriate ID on the day.
Exam certificates will be available for collection from Monday 27th November 2023. Unfortunately, the certificates cannot be posted and must be collected in person from the main school reception. These can be collected between 8am and 3pm Monday to Friday.
If you would like someone to collect your certificates on your behalf please complete and return the form below. The person who collects will need to bring appropriate ID on the day.
Your exam certificates are very important documents and must be collected as soon as possible after the 27th November 2023.
As per JCQ guidance we are only obliged to keep uncollected exam certificates for 12 months from the date of issue. After this time they will be confidentially disposed of.
Many employers will ask for a copy of your exam certificates and if they have been disposed of you will need to contact the individual exam boards to obtain a replacement at an average cost of £40 per certificate. Therefore it is very important you collect them promptly.
