Sibford School External Candidate Examinations
Welcome to Sibford School, and thank you for considering us to support you with private candidate entries. We are a small, independent school with a Quaker ethos, in rural Oxfordshire. One of the cornerstones of the Quaker faith is ‘That of God/good in everyone’. We also believe that we are here to be of service to our local community. With this in mind, it is a privilege to support a small number of private candidates each year with their examinations. Spaces are limited and so early enquiry is recommended.
We are a registered centre for AQA, OCR, Pearson Edexcel, WJEC and Cambridge International, and offer examination entries for a wide range of qualifications including GCSE, iGCSE, AS and A level. We also run examinations throughout the year, to include all available examination series run by the examination boards (January, March, Summer and Autumn series).
We have and established relationship with a qualified level 7 assessor. This means that we are able to signpost candidates and their families to this private service to enable us to support candidates with examination access arrangements.
Unfortunately, we are unable to currently offer entries for those qualifications including coursework or non-examination assessment.
For more information, please contact our Examinations Officer, Sarah Swainson by telephone 01295 781284 or via email [email protected]
If you wish to enquire regarding accommodating your examinations, places offered to private candidates are limited and subject to conditions. This preliminary entry does not guarantee you will be accommodated at this centre.
You should fully complete sections 1-4 of the preliminary entry form on page 2 by inserting your responses in the white boxes provided. The form must then be signed to confirm your understanding and dated. Your form will not be processed until all requested information and supporting evidence (where required) is provided.
The deadline for returning the completed form is Monday 12th December for Summer 2023 entries.
If the centre is able to accommodate your entry/entries, you will receive a provisional entry confirmation and an invoice for examination entry fee(s) and the centre’s administration fee(s). Examination entry fees are set by the examination boards. The centre administration fees are currently £50 per paper.
Final entries will not be submitted to the awarding body until the invoice has been paid.
In case of query, please contact Sarah Swainson (Examinations Officer) on 01295 781284 or [email protected].
