Exam Results 2020
GCSE results are released to students on Thursday 20th August.
We look forward to welcoming all Year 11 students back to collect their results on Thursday 20th August 2020 from 8.30am. Due to social distancing, we will be staggering result collection times alphabetically (please see the table below). To ensure that we can meet the one metre+ guidance, we will only be admitting students onto the school premises to collect their result: unfortunately, we are not able to permit parents on site.
In order to enable a smooth, fluid collection of results, students should arrive promptly at their given time slot to collect their results. They will enter the school building through the main reception and collect their results from the hall. Students will exit the school building via the rear playground/car park. Should students wish to open their result with their friends, or meet with them to celebrate, they can congregate, at a distance, in the rear playground.
Please do not arrive earlier than the allocated time as it will help us in ensuring social distancing and keeping everyone safe. In the event that you miss your time slot, we will only be able to permit you on site to collect your results when the number of students on site is manageable with social distancing and it is safe to do so.
Surname A – E Arrive by 8.30am
Surname F – K Arrive by 9.00am
Surname L – P Arrive by 9.30am
Surname Q – U Arrive by 10.00am
Surname V – Z Arrive by 10.30am
If you are unable to attend to collect your results in person, you will be able to request a nominee to collect. Your nominee will need to have a letter with written and signed authorisation by you to collect the results on your behalf. Nominees will be permitted to collect your results after 11.30am. Alternatively, you can phone the school office to request your results after 11.30am, otherwise the results will be posted to you later that day.
A Level Politics
Results will be shared the week earlier via a phone call.
Year 10 RP Please see separate correspondence
This year there is no appeal process available directly to you. The school can only appeal if there has been an error in the information submitted or there is evidence that the exam boards have not applied their standardisation process correctly. We have checked our submitted grades very carefully so the first of these grounds is very unlikely to apply. We will of course check all grades awarded so that we and you can be confident that the standardisation has been accurately applied. It is highly unlikely we would be able to appeal.
There will be an autumn series of exams for students wishing to re-sit. The entry deadlines for these are not until September so there is some time available to make decisions. If you do think that you might wish to re-sit an exam please do discuss that with us. Again, the important thing for you is progression to your stage and any resits you do will require a significant investment of time and effort which could be at the expense of your ongoing courses. If you are staying on in the sixth form and have not received a grade 4 or better in one of your English exams or in mathematics then you will need to re-sit those as a condition of continuing your studies and we will be making arrangements to support you with this with the aim of entering you with the best chance of success in summer 2021.
Centre Assessed Grades
If you would like to know the Centre Assessed Grades that we submitted (particularly if you need to discuss resits) then please email us after results days (i.e. on or after Friday 21st August for GCSEs). Please note that you would need to make this request and we will send them to your school email address if requested.
Details of the process for the submission of the Centre Assessed Grades are available here.
