We would also like to remind you that there is no parking on the premises. There is a car park located at the top of Church Street (Caunce Street Car Park) that you will be able to use. Please note this is a pay and display car park. There are some streets nearby where you can park for free if there is any availability. There is also 1-hour street parking available outside the centre.


Candidates are reminded that no food or drink is permitted in the exams except for bottled water. This either has to have the label removed or be in a sports type bottle with no writing on the bottle.


Please remember to bring your photographic ID with you on the day of your exam, even if we have seen it previously, if we are inspected the inspector may wish to see it.


Please bring any equipment that you may need for the exam, we do have some spare but this is limited. Your equipment will either have to be loose or in a clear pencil case so that all the contents can be seen.


Please ensure that no smartwatches or wireless earphones are worn on the day as these are prohibited by all exam boards.


We wish you the best of luck with your revision and if you require any further information, please feel free to get in touch.
