Summer 2021 – A level and GCSE awards

Ofqual has now confirmed how A levels and GCSEs will be awarded this summer.  Ofqual’s infographic can be viewed by following this link.

Special Consideration form

If your child has extenuating circumstances, and you wish them to be taken into consideration for the calculation of Centre Assessed Grades, you will need to complete this form.

Summer 2021 Results Days, as confirmed on 25 February 2021. 
NB these dates are different to those originally published

AS and A level and FSMQ (“Add Maths”) : Tuesday 10 August 2021
GCSE: Thursday 12 August 2021

The JCQ has moved the time for the release of results from 8 am to 8.30 am.


The move has been made to coincide with the timing of the UK-wide release of Higher Education (HE) application outcomes. It also aims to minimise the potential for student anxiety in having to wait 30 minutes between the receipt of their results and learning of their HE application outcomes.


The embargo change will cover AS, A level and Add Maths results on the 10th August and GCSE results on the 12th August to ensure consistency across exam centres.


The new embargo time for the release of results applies to England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Policy for Process for Private Candidate


In order to minimise the number of people on the school site during the Covid 19 lifting of lockdown we ask that you do not come into school to collect exam certificates at the current time.

We are holding a Leavers 2020 certificate collection session for the collection of A Level certificates on July 6th 2020 4 -6pm. Please look out for a letter inviting you to this event.

If you are unable to collect in person you will need to complete a third party collection form which has been sent along with the letter or can be printed from the link below. 

Please note that your third party will be asked for proof of identity as will you if collecting your certificates and you are no longer on roll.
