GCSE/A Level Summer Results Day 2021
As we approach the end of the school year, we write to remind you of arrangements for results days in August.
This summer’s results are based on Centre Assessed Grades, as you know. Our students applied themselves really well throughout the assessment windows that we put in place for them. Your support for them throughout this period, as well as during the earlier part of their much-disrupted exam course, has been hugely appreciated by us – and your support will have helped your son/daughter to perform better, no doubt.
A Level and equivalent Courses for Year 13
The Results Day is on 10 August. Students can collect their results from 08:30am in the Sixth Form Centre. Staff will be on hand to offer support and advise, if required. If the results that a student receives are disputed, there is an appeals process to be followed.
GCSE and equivalent Courses for Year 11
The Results Day is on 12 August. Students can collect their results from 09:0am in the Sports Hall. Staff will be on hand to offer support and advise, if required. If the results that a student receives are disputed, there is an appeals process to be followed.
What are the grounds for appeal?
The main grounds for appeal, as per the national guidance from the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ), are:
- You think we have made an administrative error: an example of this would be putting the wrong information into a spreadsheet.
- You think we have made a procedural error: this means we haven’t properly followed our own process, as approved by the exam board. An example of this would be where you are entitled to additional support for assessments but this wasn’t given in a certain subject.
- You think the academic judgement on the selection of evidence was unreasonable: you think the evidence used to grade you was not reasonable.
- You think the academic judgement on the grade you were given was unreasonable: you think that the final grade awarded was not a reasonable judgement.
Further details will be available on results days, if required.
