  • Cancellation of Summer GCSE and A Level Examinations

    Published 23/03/20

    The government has now provided some outline guidance following the cancellation of all GCSE and A level exams this summer. 

    In summary, there will not be any exams this summer.  Our students will be awarded a ‘calculated’ grade which will be based on a number of factors.  These will be formal grades and will be indistinguishable from grades awarded in other years.  They will be published by the end of July.  Students who are unhappy with their grades will have the opportunity to appeal by sitting an exam as soon as possible after schools reopen – but not before the start of the next academic year. 

    We know our students.  We know the qualifications.  We support the government’s decision to involve our teacher’s recommendation in awarding grades.  This is a system similar to the one used for unwell students during exam season.  We believe it will provide a fair and credible way of assessing qualifications during these challenging times. 

    Please see our frequently asked questions below:
