Exams Information


GCSE Examinations During the Covid-19 Pandemic 2021

There is still a lot of uncertainty around the exams situation and we are following regular guidance from the Government, Ofqual and the DfE.

The DfE has confirmed that most GCSE exams will take place three weeks later than usual in 2021 to give pupils more time to prepare with one English and Maths GCSE taking place before the May half-term.  They have also confirmed that the GCSE and A-level results will be handed out in the same week of August, rather than a week apart so GCSE results day will now be Friday 27th August 2021.

As soon as we receive any further up-dates, we will share this with Year 11 students, parents and carers.

Procedure for Enquiries about ResultsThe school will determine any reviews of marking following receipt of the results, only if students have given their consent to do so. All students will receive information with their results explaining the procedure should they wish to make an independent enquiry about their results.  No request will be accepted if this procedure has not been followed.
