The information on this page was correct as of Friday 14th August 2020.

On Saturday 15th August 2020 Ofqual has withdrawn its proposals on the appeal process and the role of mock examinations and this is under review.

On Monday 17th August 2020 Ofqual announced that results for both A levels and GCSEs will be centre assessed grades.

This page will be updated once Ofqual releases more detailed information to schools.

Year 11 GCSE results day is Thursday 20 August 2020. This year students will collect their results in two time slots, in order to limit the number of people in a room at once and improve social distancing requirements. Please see below for your allocated time and room.

Students wishing to join the Sixth Form who have met the entry requirements for the Sixth Form and all of their subjects need to confirm their place in the Sixth Form and their subject choices with staff at the sign in desks.

Students who have met the overall requirement for the Sixth Form but not for their original subject choices need to see Mr Ellis. They (and their parents) can wait in the Training Room.

Students who have not met the entry criteria for the Sixth Form and wish to speak to someone may see Mrs Grant and Mrs Bates or the Careers Advisor. They (and their parents) can wait in the Dining Room.

Students who are away on holiday and wish to join the Sixth Form must still contact the school to confirm their place in the Sixth Form. This can be done by phoning the school on results day between 9am and 12pm on (01673) 866900 or by emailing Mr Ellis at

Timetables will be in draft and subject to change until Wednesday 2 September. The first day of term for Year 12 will be Monday 7 September 2020.

Ofqual has confirmed that there will be a GCSE examination series running from 2 November 2020 to 23 November 2020. Students considering entries for this series should seek advice from a member of the senior staff. Any entries will need to be made and paid for by Friday 18 September 2020.
