It is the aim of Winterhill School to make the examination experience as stress-free and successful as possible for all candidates.


Hopefully, the information given in the downloads will be helpful for parents and students. Copies of the letters, booklets and individual timetables have been given to all students.


Please read the information carefully.


The awarding bodies (or examination boards) set down strict criteria which must be followed for the conduct of examinations and Winterhill School is required to follow them precisely.
