Due to Covid please ensure all pupils are fully equipped as stationery cannot be lent out.
Year 11 Results Day
Results will be distributed on Thursday 12th August from 10am until 11am. We will use the Hall in the same way as for your results from Year 10. We will review the requirements for social distancing nearer the date, but will make sure that the expectations are clearly set out.
If for any reason you cannot collect your results on that day we will offer two alternatives;
- If you require someone else to collect your results you must email Mrs Robinson (email@example.com) by the 16th July with your full name and tutor group and that person’s full name. When they come to collect your results, they will need to bring photo ID with them. We will not give out results, even to parents, if we have not received the information in advance.
- We will send your results home by 1st class post when we finish for results day. We will use the address we have recorded on SIMS. If you have moved recently you must make sure that we are informed as soon as you can. If you don’t want us to do this then you must contact Mrs Robinson immediately.

Teacher Assessed Grades and the right to appeal
I hope that this letter finds you all well. We have now had the opportunity to review all of the documentation provided by the JCQ (examinations Governing Body) which was published just before the Easter holiday. I would like to take the opportunity to detail some information regarding the school processes for the allocation of the Teacher Assessed Grades.
Teacher Assessed Grades
Summer 2021 results will be submitted to the Exam Boards on Friday 18th June. They will be based upon a suite of assessment data that students will have completed over the duration of their courses. The assessments undertaken before and after Easter will be included in this. Subjects will apply a consistent approach utilising all this information to allocate the grade. It is possible that you may see some fluctuation of grades between assessments. This is to be expected. The Centre Policy – ‘Determining Teacher Assessed Grades in summer 2021’ can be found on our school website.
It is important to remember that the Teacher Assessed Grades must remain confidential. As I have already mentioned in my previous letter regarding Parents Evening, we are ‘not able to discuss anything to do with the final Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG’s)…..this information is confidential and any overt questioning regarding this would be considered as malpractice and will be reported to the exam boards’. We understand that you might have questions about final submitted grades, but we have to adhere to the strict conditions set by the governing body.

Timeline for Appeals
ALL appeals need to be requested before Friday, 3rd September 2021. This can be done by completing the Appeals Stage one document below and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org. To ensure this is given the highest priority please label APPEALS in the subject heading. Once we have an outcome, we will communicate this to you via email. If necessary the Stage 2 document will be made available to you.
Please note that there are two stages to the appeal process this Summer (see details below). You can request Stage one without proceeding to Stage two. However, you are unable to complete Stage two Appeal without completing Stage one.
Priority Appeals are not available for GCSE's as this is only for Students who's results are pending a university place.
