Exam information

At Bents Green we offer a range of qualifications which have been selected to provide recognition of the hard work and progress our students make whilst at the school. 

Tutor Teams are happy to talk to Parents/Carers about which qualifications their child is likely to take and the work the students are carrying out in preparation for assessment. 

We invite all Y10 and upwards Parents/Carers to an Exams Presentation Evening in March. The Headteacher will provide useful information about the upcoming exam season, key dates, how assessments work and how families can support their child.
