Millais School has a history of strong GCSE results and is regularly the top performing non-selective comprehensive school in the county.
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 needs, 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 [email protected] if we can be of any assistance.
Mock examinations are held for students in Year 11 throughout the academic year.
Years 7-10 have formal examinations to be fully familiar with the examinations systems and expectations. These typically occur over the spring or summer terms.
