Welcome to the Examinations web page for the Sir James Henderson School! The aim of this page is to provide information about public examinations to pupils in years 10, 11, 12, 13, parents and external candidates.
Exams Officers perform the vital function of administering exams in schools and colleges.They ensure that examinations in schools run smoothly. Examinations officers oversee and administer the whole exam process, including sorting out timetable clashes; making sure special requirements are met; and liaising with external examining bodies.

At Sir James the role of the examinations officer is to ensure that students are properly entered for the exams they have selected and that they have been appropriately charged. For this reason, the examinations officer liaises with Examination Boards on a regular basis and with teachers who monitor students.

We use two main GCSE and IGCSE Examination Boards: Edexcel and CIE (Cambridge International Examinations). Students are allowed to retake Edexcel GCSE modular subjects (such as History or English) in January

SJHS Y13 students take exams for the International Baccalaureate (IB). IB Examinations are taken in May. However IB students are allowed to retake one or more subjects in November with a final option to retake subjects in May of the following year. For further information regarding the IB Curriculum and structure click on the following link: IB Diploma

The Sir James Henderson School also serves as an examination centre for external students (non-sjhs students) who wish to take GCSE, IGCSE and A level modules in June.

IB examinations are taken in May and results are published in the first week of July. GCSE results are generally available between the 23rd and the 26th August. IB and Edexcel students are issued a personalized PIN number in order to check their final results online.

Post results services are:
  1. Enquiries about Results - clerical checks, review of marking, review of moderation and appeals,
  2. Access to Scripts.
The final closing dates for all Enquires About Results applications are: :
