Results Day August 2021:
Results day for GCSEs and other Year 11 qualifications has been set for 12th August.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding COVID-19 and the implications on staffing, we will NOT be able to allow students to come to school to receive their grades. As with last year’s Year 11, we will be emailing a full grade summary, exactly what would have been printed and given out, to all students via their email addresses. They will receive this email between 9:00am and 10:00am.

Summer 2021 student careers/Post 16 support:
Students will be able to phone school or email on Thursday 12th and Friday 13st August and we will have staff on hand to respond and support. We will also have an online Careers and Post-16 support link that will provide a host of information that will be updated throughout the results period with up to date information from the colleges as we receive it. We will send this link with the exam results.

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.
