Arrangements for GCSE Results Day - Thursday 12th August 2021

This year the results day for GCSE examinations is Thursday, 12th August 2021 when students may come to school to collect a school printout of their results between 9:00 am and 11:00am. On arrival at school, students should enter via the Melrose entrance and make their way to the Café to collect their results, follow the one-way system through the conservatory and out to the yard and exit the school via the Melrose entrance; could I please ask parents wait on the car park. Anyone arriving after 11am should go to main reception.


As Covid-19 is still highly transmissible, we do need to remain cautious as the Government advises.  Therefore, in order to keep everyone as safe as possible, we would like students to wear a face covering and if possible, arrange to test beforehand.


Exam boards no longer issue paper results slips and the school summary printout issued to each student is the official confirmation of their results and will be sufficient evidence for colleges and other post-16 providers. This is the only documentation prior to the issue of certificates and must be kept safely until the certificates are sent to school in November 2021.


If a student cannot attend school to collect their results in person and to ensure that results are despatched to the correct, up-to-date address we ask that a stamped, accurately addressed envelope is provided to the Exams Officer prior to Monday, 2nd August 2021. Please do not telephone the school for results. Results cannot be given over the telephone in case of misunderstandings. If a student is unable to collect results in person on Thursday, 12th August 2021, a parent/carer may do so on their behalf. However, the student must have provided written authorisation for us to do this. This can be submitted in advance to the Exams Officer or be brought in by the parent/carer on the day.


I hope that your child is pleased with the results they receive, however should they believe that there is an error with any of the results, we have an appeals procedure as set out by the Joint Council for Qualifications.


Before you make an appeal please read the documents below. If you still wish to make an appeal then complete the Microsoft form using the link below for Stage one – Centre review. The deadline for stage one appeals is Friday 3rd September 2021.
