Information From Results Days 2020

GCSE RESULTS DAY: Thursday 20th August 2020
Following the U turn around GCSE grades in the news yesterday afternoon, here is some clarification about what will happen this Thursday.

This Thursday (20th August), the GCSE results the students will receive are the Centre Assessed Grades – the grades their teachers believed the students would receive. These are the GCSE grades that should be used in applying for A levels, college courses or apprenticeships. There was a rigorous process involved in terms of the teachers submitting these grades and a range of evidence used that was stipulated by Ofqual.

To clarify the government statement from yesterday, “ official results will be released to students next week” means that where a student’s calculated grade (using the algorithm) was higher than the Centre Assessed Grades, the higher of the two grades would count. It is only expected that around 1% of grades nationally will be higher, therefore it is unlikely that grades will be upgraded. However, if this is the case for any of our students we will contact home as soon as the ‘official results’ are received.

If you have opted for your results to be emailed, a reminder that this will occur in the afternoon after results have been given out in school. All results will be printed and available to be picked up.
