If the school is forced to close due to bad weather on a date when there is an exam scheduled, please be assured that all external exams will go ahead even if school is 'closed'. Examination Boards will not allow the rescheduling of exams and staff will be in school to run the exams as normal, whatever the conditions. If bad weather is forecast and travel to school is likely to be difficult, students may need to consider making special arrangements for getting into school in time to sit their exams.
