Certificates

All students receive certificate directly from the academy when released from the Examination Board. Upon receipt of any certificates please ensure these are kept safe at all times as these are valuable.

Preparation

Exams are a necessary (but not always loved) part of school life. Increasingly, students now have to prepare for more exams, especially with the removal (or reduction) of coursework in many subjects.

For younger students, getting into good routines earlier on in your school life is a good thing. To get yourself revision ready follow our 6 step guide below.

You will find that your teachers will increasingly help you to prepare for exams via mini tests, revision techniques and opportunities to practice in timed conditions. Follow the revision steps below to be ready for success.
