Year 11 GCSE Examinations

Parents of Year 11 students will have received correspondence regarding the exams which began this week, with GCSE Art exams and will carry on through the May break. In the pack you will have an exam timetable for your child and a copy of the examination booklet. Please take the time to read this and if you have any questions please contact Miss Lowe at llowe@corbytechnicalschool.


It is important all students arrive on time, at least 15 minutes before the exam begins. We will provide complimentary breakfast and lunch over the May break for those students who are completing exams and details of this can be found in the booklet.


This is an exciting time for Corby Technical School and our students who have worked extremely hard in the build up to exam season and we wish all our students every success in their examinations.
