Exams 2021

As we all know, the Government decided to cancel all GCSE and A-Level examinations back in December. As per OFQUAL’s guidance: “For GCSEs, AS and A levels, teachers will assess the standard at which you are performing based only on what you have been taught so that your school or college can determine your grade. Teachers’ judgements should be based on a range of evidence.” Please note, this also applied to vocational qualifications such as BTEC’s and Cambridge Nationals.

We have set out further details on how these are calculated in our communication with parents and also in our centre policy:

Please note, for all enquiries relating to grades being awarded this year, we are asking that communication be sent through to our specialised inbox:

Throughout April and May we will enter a phase of assessments taking place in our sports hall. These are a robust method of gaining additional evidence for our staff for when they are formulating TAG’s. Please see below for the timetable:
