Examination Results Day 2021

Results for all external exams will be available to collect from the school between 9.30am and 11.30am on Thursday 12th August 2021.

Results must be collected by the student in person. If any other person (including family members) needs to collect results, written authorisation from the student must be received by the school prior to results day. Results cannot be provided over the phone.

Candidates who do not collect their results will receive notification through the normal post.

Please note that these arrangements may be subject to change, dependent on government guidance. Updates will be posted on the school website and in the newsletter if required.

Enquiries about Results and Resits

We are currently waiting for the JCQ and Ofqual guidance on Enquiries about Results and Resits for this year.

The government have decided that an autumn series will be provided so that any student who does not feel their calculated grade reflects their ability is given the opportunity to sit an exam at the earliest reasonable opportunity. To ensure this is fair for all students, they have proposed that exam boards offer autumn exams for all of the GCSE and A level qualifications they had intended to offer in the summer. They have also proposed that the format of these exams will be the same as those originally proposed for  summer 2021.

If students choose to resit, they will be able to use the higher of the two grades for future progression.

It is not known what the fees for resits may be or who will be responsible for paying them.

A consultation has taken place and the final guidance has yet to be published.
