Important Information

Preparation for Exams

February 16, 2024

We would like to inform you that your child is entering the final few months of their school education before embarking on their GCSE examinations during the summer term.

Your child will therefore need to be available to sit their examinations from Monday 6th May until Wednesday 26th June 2024 inclusive. No holidays or absences will be authorised at this time. The whole school examination timetable is enclosed for your attention.

In preparation for the GCSE examinations, we will undertake a further set of mock examinations from Monday 11th March until Friday 22nd March inclusive. It is also important that your child participates in these trial examinations, to allow us to assess any needs prior to the final examination series.

GCSE Results Day is Thursday 22nd August 2024 where you are invited to attend school and collect your results.


We would like to wish our learners every success throughout their final months at The Link School. Should you or they need any further support in preparing for the GCSE examinations, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
