Year 12 Examinations January 2015


Report to the Sports Hall at the time shown in the first column for each exam – 9.10 for the morning session, 11.45 for the midday session and 1.50 for the afternoon session. Any gap between this time and the start of the exam can be spent preparing and revising. Pupils entitled to extra time will be given this through added time at the start and end of the sessions. Music and Art exams will be in their respective rooms. Students are to use the study hall or library for revision when there is a gap in their schedule. Full school uniform is to be worn on any occasion when you are in school.


You must plan to be present for all of your papers – the real GCSE exams have very strict rules regarding this and we are trying to make our school exams as realistic as possible. If you are ill and unable to attend, you should contact the school as early as possible.

DE Consultation on Bullying

Young Person's Survey


Bullying is a complex, multi-facetted problem which can be found,
in varying degrees, in almost every school in the world. It has the
capacity not only to adversely affect the education of children who
experience bullying, but to cause serious mental and emotional
damage which its victims may carry with them into their adult lives.
No child should have to live with this. Bullying behaviour, in any of
the many forms in which it can manifest, is always unacceptable
and must be challenged wherever it is encountered.

2. On 23rd June 2014 the Minister for Education (The Minister)
announced in the Assembly his intention to bring forward new
legislation, within the remaining Assembly mandate, to help tackle
the problem of bullying in our schools.

3. This commitment was made on the basis of both research
evidence and a review of current anti-bullying policies and practice
within our schools undertaken by the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying
Forum (NIABF), a grouping which brings together 25 statutory and
non-statutory organisations working to tackle bullying. Annex A
details the member organisations of NIABF. Annex B outlines the
main NIABF review findings and recommendations.
