All students receive their Exam timetables through their tutors during form time before Spring Holidays. 

Contingency day: due to the change of Exam dates for Summer 2021 There is no contingency day

The designation of a ‘contingency’ day within the common examination timetable is in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examinations. It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations. Candidates are reminded that they must remain available until Contingency day should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan.

Collecting your Results and Certificates

Results and Certificates belong to the Candidate and, therefore, are best collected in person. Certificates have to be signed for. Summer 2020 Certificates are available now. Students attending Sixth Form will be able to pick them up in person, students who have left FPSS are advised to check on the website for an update and make use of the Certificate Collection form included in the Results envelope if they are not able to sign for their Certificates themselves.

  • If you cannot attend Results Day, download the Results Collection Form (below) and hand it in to the Exams Office.
  • If you cannot pick up your Certificates in person fill in the Certificate Collection Form (below) and hand it in to the Exams Office.
