Exams Officer: Mr M Rawlinson
Exams Assistant: Mrs H Reading

The Exams Office is responsible for organising and over-seeing everything to do with all the exams at Denbigh School, from time-tabling to organising invigilators.

Along with rules and regulations set down by Government and the Exam Boards we also expect students to:

  • Wear their Denbigh School Uniform correctly
  • The JCQ instructions say that mobile phones (and other electronic devices) must not be brought to the exam room. If students fail to comply with this instruction then we will store the (switched off) phone during the exam but it MUST be handed in.
  • Make sure they have the correct equipment for the exam they are sitting
  • Adhere perfectly to the No Speaking rule and follow ALL instructions precisely
