In the Exams Information section (About SBE School / Exams / Exams Information) you will find a number of document links relating to the examinations process at Shenley Brook End School.  If the document relates to a particular year group or level of qualification, this will be indicated by the inclusion of the relevant year group or level of qualification within the document name; any document which does not have a year group or level of qualification within the title relates to all candidates, regardless of their year group or level of qualification.  If you cannot find the information you are seeking in any of the documents listed, please do not hesitate to contact the Examinations Office via the school’s main switchboard number (01908 520264) during the school working week.  (Some documents are included in more than one section for ease of reference.)

AQA, Pearson Edexcel, OCR and WJEC are the awarding bodies used by the school for GCSE and GCE examination entries; the websites are freely accessible and contain a wealth of information.


Prior to mock examination sessions, students will receive a timetable via the tutor tray, advising them of their mock examination dates; copies of this timetable are not posted home to parents. If a candidate needs a replacement copy of any timetable, s/he should come to the Examinations Office to request this.

Candidates for external examinations will receive an initial, reference timetable (portrait style) shortly after the entry deadline for the relevant season has passed and then, closer to the relevant examination season, candidates will be provided with a rooming/seating timetable (landscape style) at which point they should discard the reference timetable; this is particularly important for the Summer season of examinations. Copies of candidate timetables for external examinations will be sent to the parents of students in Years 7-11 who have entries for examinations in the relevant season; copies of the candidates’ timetables are not usually sent to the parents of Sixth Form students although if parents wish to receive a copy of their son/daughter’s timetable, please ring the school and ask to speak to a member of the Examinations Office staff and we will arrange to post out a copy of the student’s timetable.

Please be aware that entries for external examinations are made well ahead of the actual examination series:

  • entries are made in early October for the November series of examinations;
  • entries are made in late October for the January series of examinations (Shenley Brook End School will have limited entries in the January series)
  • entries are made in mid-February for the Summer series of GCE and GCSE examinations.

Students/parents are encouraged to contact the Examinations Office prior to the entry deadlines indicated above if they have queries about entries.

Examinations Officer
