If you have a physical disability or a learning disability and require any access arrangements (for example a scribe, extra time or modified papers) you need to discuss this with the exams officer.
Where the arrangements involve school resources it will be entirely the decision of the school or college whether to accept your entry. Below is a general list of schools and colleges that have told us that they may be willing to accept private candidates. We cannot provide you with a list of schools and colleges for a particular subject.
You are advised to find a school or college well in advance of the closing date for students to be entered for exams, to allow the exams officer time to process your entry and to avoid payment of late fees.
Please check the entries closing dates for all exams series.
The historic riverside area is famous for its network of 18th-century buildings and pleasure grounds, many of which survive intact.
This area has three grand period mansions with public access: York House, Marble Hill and Strawberry Hill House.
It is up to the school or college whether to accept private candidates.
We can't ask a school or college to accept your entry.
In 1736, the noted pharmacist and quack doctor Joshua Ward set up the Great Vitriol Works to produce sulphuric acid, using a process discovered in the seventeenth century by Johann Glauber in which sulphur is burned together with saltpetre (potassium nitrate), in the presence of steam.
The process generates an extremely unpleasant smell, which caused objections from local residents.
The manor had belonged to Ælfgār, Earl of Mercia in the time of Edward the Confessor, but was granted to Walter de Saint-Valery (Waleric) by William I of England after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.
The area was then farmed for several hundred years, while the river provided opportunities for fishing, boatbuilding and trade.
There was also a watch house in the middle of the town, with stocks, a pillory and a whipping post whose owner was charged to "ward within and about this Parish and to keep all Beggars and Vagabonds that shall lye abide or lurk about the Towne and to give correction to such...". It was occupied by Edward Montagu, 2nd Earl of Manchester in 1656 and later by Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon.
