Welcome to the Exams section of the NLS website! 

You will find important exam information detailed below. If you have any queries please email Katie James, Exams Officer: exams@northleamington.co.uk

The Exams Office is open Monday to Friday, term time only, between 8:30am – 4:30pm.

 

EXAM CERTIFICATE COLLECTION

Exam certificates are legal documents that may be required by Further Education providers and employers as evidence of the qualifications you have achieved.

(Some candidates have already paid £5 via ParentPay for the Royal Mail Recorded Delivery service to have their certificates posted to their home address in early November.)

Alternatively, exam certificates from the June 2019 exam series will be available to sign for and collect from the school’s main reception area on Wednesday 27 November 2019 between 3 – 6pm.

If you are not available to collect your certificates in person on that date you may contact the Exams Officer via email exams@northleamington.co.uk either authorising a named family member or friend to sign for and collect your certificates on your behalf, or to arrange collection on another date.

We still have a number of uncollected exam certificates from previous exam series - as far back as June 2005 - in our archives.

Please email the Exams Officer with any enquiries and to arrange collection.

Certificates may be destroyed after 12 months.

If you have lost your exam certificates please go to the GOV.UK website https://www.gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate for further information.

 

NOVEMBER RE-SITS

Please find below the timetable for the November re-sit examinations for GCSE English Language and GCSE Mathematics.  Any enquiries from ex-students should be emailed to the Exams Officer as a matter of urgency.  Registration closes on Friday 4 October 2020.  All candidates will be given their individual seating timetables before half term.
