Millais School

In Pursuit of Excellence

Examinations

Millais School has a history of strong GCSE results and in 2016 was one of the top 100 performing schools in the country. With the Government move towards linear qualifications and the increased emphasis on examinations for assessment, we are well equipped to build on this history of success.

The examination team at Millais School is highly committed to each student. This means that we will wherever possible accommodate individual student need, provide a strong fully trained invigilation team to support the running of examinations and will provide timely and considered responses to all students and parents with any questions or concerns about the examination process.

The Examinations team welcome the opportunity to discuss and questions or concerns in regard to the examinations process. Please email exams@millais.org.uk or call us on 01403 282 981 if we can be of any assistance.

Exam Pack

An extensive information pack is issued to students prior to their examinations to ensure that they have a clear understanding of the examinations process.

Results Day

GCSE results day falls on Thursday 24th August 2017. Results will be available for students to collect from the Main School Hall from 9am -11am in person or by an appointed person if in possession of a signed dated letter of authorisation from the candidates. This is a happy occasion and allows for students to celebrate together their hard work. GCSE results will be sent out to students by first class post where they have requested and paid for this. GCSE results will not be available on the Millais Moodle.

Queries and questions regarding remarks or enquiries about results are directed to subject teachers in the first instance. In some cases these may incur a charge.

If you are unable to collect your results you need to complete a Permission to Collect a Candidate's Results form, in person, in capital letters and return it to the Exams Office or give it to your nominated person to bring on GCSE results day.

GCSE Certificates

Certificates are issued in November for candidates who have taken their examinations here at Millais School. 

Certificates are available for collection from Millais School between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Thursday, during term time only. To ensure that the certificates are available and avoid a wasted journey, you are advised to phone the Exams Officer on 01403 282981 to ensure that someone is able to provide them by appointment. The certificates will need to be collected in person by each student. However, if they are unable to attend then they must provide a signed letter of authorisation for another person to collect on their behalf.
