Examination Information

Examinations are an important part of school life throughout a student’s time at The Maynard. This may take the form of external A-level or GCSE examinations or internal end of year assessments.

The Department of Education are currently reviewing the findings of a consultation held in August 2021, looking at how the GCSE & A-Level exams will run in the summer of 2022. We should know the outcome of their decisions shortly.
