Health Information

Mrs Hearle's update for 19th July - please see our Health Information page for our latest information, as we move to Step 4 out of lockdown on Monday 19th June.

The majority of GCSE exams (or equivalent qualifications) are taken at the end of Year 11, although we are also offer GCSE Media Studies to some Year 9 students.

Mock examinations for Year 11 students take place in December, with some further mocks in March each year.  The whole school sits summer examinations, once the GCSE exams are completed in June.

April Update 2021: How will GCSE grades be awarded this summer?

Grades for GCSEs and equivalent qualifications in Summer 2021 will be based on a process involving teacher assessment against national standards, internal quality assurance, and external quality assurance by the exam boards.

Further to my communication in March, outlining the process, I am now able to share with you our Centre Policy for GCSEs in Summer 2021, and JCQ guidance for students and parents on Summer 2021.  Please do email me with any questions you have.

Year 11 students have six weeks ahead of them to perform as well as they can on class assessments.  My advice to them is to remain focused and work hard: #controlthecontrollables.

Best wishes and thank you for your support.

Paula Hearle
