Public Exams at CHS
At Cheadle Hulme School, teaching of GCSE and A Level subjects follows the syllabuses from the main exam boards in England and Wales (dependent upon subject and level):
CAIE (Cambridge Assessment International Education)
Further information on the syllabus of an individual subject can be found on the Senior School Curriculum and Sixth Form Curriculum pages. These pages also contain information on reform of the examination system, and how it affects Cheadle Hulme School.
All GCSE and A Level examinations now take place in the ‘June series’ which runs from early May to late June. The School Exam Office is responsible for administering these examinations in line with the appropriate regulations.
Students in the Lower Sixth and Upper Sixth undertake internal trial exams in the Spring Term. Year 11 trial exams take place in December. These exams are administered by the Exam Office.
Students in Years 7 to 10 take internal End-of-Year examinations in the Summer Term. These exams are administered by the Head of Year.
The document Public Examinations Procedure – Senior School provides guidance on the roles and responsibilities in regard to examinations. It highlights the availability of examinations at CHS, where fees might be charged, how any access arrangements and reasonable adjustments (for examination purposes) are agreed in CHS, and the approach taken to the use of word processors in examinations.
