JCQ Guidance for students and parents/carers on Summer 2021 Exams:

Results collection – to be confirmed in light of COVID-19 government guidance
Results day for GCSEs and other Year 11 qualifications has been set for week commencing 9th August.

In summer 2020, in line with government health and safety guidance, unfortunately we were NOT able to allow students to come to school to receive their grades. Instead, we emailed a full grade summary, exactly what would have been printed and given out, to all students via their @cockburnschool.org email addresses. They received this email between 9:00am and 10:00am.

Summer 2020 student careers/Post 16 support:
Students were able to phone school or email year11@cockburnschool.org on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st August and we had staff on hand to respond and support. We also had an online Careers and Post-16 support link that provided a host of information that was updated throughout the results period with up to date information from the colleges as we received it.

Each college has its own enrollment process and it is your child’s responsibility to ensure that they enroll with their chosen college. If they don’t, they risk losing their college place. Please ensure that they are checking their mobile, email and the college websites for updates. They can contact their chosen college directly for more information.
