Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Skeleton timetable for May/June2022 exams (may be subject to change).

Please note that students are issued with a "Statement of Results" on results day. Statements of Results are NOT Exam Certificates. Results Days within school are extremely busy. It is School Policy that results will not be given over the telephone or sent by email.

Year 11 must collect their results in person, we will accommodate requests for alternative arrangements as outlined below, but these are ONLY in extreme circumstances and should be arranged before leaving and at the very latest 24 June 2022.

  1. Stamped self-addressed envelope for results to be posted (this should ideally be A4 sized).
  2. Written authorisation, from the student, for someone else (including parents) to collect their results on the day. This cannot be another student in the year group.

Urgent GCSE review of marking can be arranged on results day. After that only normal results can be requested until Friday 16 September 2022 (Date TBC).

Exam Timetables

General exam timetables will be published here, these are intended as a guide only and may be subject to change.  We will issue pupils and parents/carers with a personal exam timetable showing exact dates and times for the Summer Series around the Easter holidays or as soon as we can. Please note practical and speaking tests are not included and details of these will be given to pupils by their subject teacher. Sometimes candidates have a clash where two exams are scheduled for the same time. In most cases these would just follow on from each other.

Please check that all personal details (date of birth, spelling of names) are accurate as these will appear on certificates (only the legal name will appear, no preferred names or derivatives can be issued on the Exam Certificate) and will be difficult to change once certificates are awarded, a charge is levied by the individual exam boards which is payable by the candidate if notification is not made to the Exams Office.

If you require actual exam dates the provisional timetables for all exam sessions can be easily downloaded from the Exam board website (please see Exam Board Contact Details below).

Please note that exams can only be sat on the day timetabled by the Exam Boards.

Exam Certificates

GCSE certificates are available for collection from School Reception from the week commencing 5 December 2022. Specific collection dates will be advised on the school website. Please check with School Reception first, to make sure they have arrived from the Exam Boards.

Alternatively, if school leavers have a sibling still attending school, the certificates can be collected on their behalf, as long as a letter of authorisation is provided with a copy of a valid ID.

Exam certificates are an important document and should be kept somewhere safe. If you misplace or lose your certificates you can only get replacements through the Examining Boards who can charge up to £43 per certificate (as at March 2020).

Please note that a requirement of the Examining Boards is that all certificates be returned to them or destroyed, if not collected within 12 months of issue. We therefore suggest that certificates are collected no later than April of the following year of issue.

Exam Board Contact Details

The exam boards set down strict regulations for the conduct of exams which the school and its pupils are required to follow. The JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) Information for Candidates will be issued to pupils before each exam series. This explains these rules in detail. Candidates should read this carefully and note that any breach of these regulations will be reported to the awarding body and could lead to disqualification.
