Exam Board Information

Information for candidates

Swanwick Hall School understands that taking exams can be a stressful period for students and parents/carers. It is important that everyone involved in this process is as informed as possible regarding the expectations of the exam boards. The information on this page is intended to inform you about examination rules and procedures. These documents will provide clear guidance from the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ). It is strongly advised that students and parents read them carefully to ensure that students are not in breach of regulations.

If you require further support, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Perry the school’s Examinations Officer.

JCQ Mobile Phone Video

Students are asked to watch this video prior to sitting any exams. It is important to understand that being in possession of a mobile phone, or any other electronic device, during an exam is likely to be classed as malpractice. The exam boards take cases of suspected malpractice very seriously and the probable outcome is disqualification from the exam meaning students will receive zero marks.

The school advises students to leave their mobile phones at home on exam days.


Swanwick Hall School has an ‘Internal Assessment & Appeals Policy’ covering all internally completed assessments. This is policy is available, by request, from the school’s Exams Office: exams@swanwickhall.derbyshire.sch.uk.

Results Days

A Level Results Day is on Thursday 13th August 2020. Students can collect their results from 10am in the Sixth Form centre.

GCSE Results day is on Thursday 20th August 2020. Students cab collect their results from 10am in the Dining Hall.

If students are unable to collect their results in person they must write a letter to the Exams Officer, Mrs Perry, to ask for the results to be e-mailed or posted. Results will not be released to anyone other than the student without prior written consent. Please note, letters from parents cannot be accepted for data protection reasons. No results will be given over the phone.

Should students have any queries regarding results day, they can contact Mrs Perry by e-mail: kpr@swanwickhall.derbyshire.sch.uk.
