Monday 5th September - Friday 9th September

Exam week is from Monday 5th of September - Friday 9th of September. The morning exams run from 8:45am – 11:45am and afternoon exams from 12:45pm – 3:45pm.

If you have an exam clash please see your teachers to arrange an alternative time to sit the exam within Examination Week.

Note for correspondence students:

If you are a correspondence student you must do the correspondence exam on Monday afternoon. If you have a clash it is the other exam that you need to reschedule, as all correspondence papers must be completed on Monday so that they can be sent away before the marking deadline.

Examination Rules and Procedures

Students may only use the Library for study at school unless receiving tuition from a teacher.  Students are not expected to be playing on the fields as Year 7-10 classes are running as normal.
