Message from the Headteacher
As a result of advice received from Ofqual over the awarding of examination grades parents and students may raise the question about completing further work and will it count towards their final grade?
The answer is that it is highly unlikely that further work that students do will count towards their final grade and it is now entirely optional for year 11 and 6.2 students to complete work including coursework.
My advice is that there is benefit to keeping occupied through this difficult period and to complete work especially in the subjects related to your future Sixth Form courses, degree to be studied at University or future employment which will prove beneficial in the future.
To ensure that the integrity of awarding grades is appropriately dealt with I must advise that under no circumstances should parents and students enter in to discussions with teachers about what grade they are likely to be awarded.
Lady Maria Satchwell
All examinations have been cancelled. The latest information on awarding of examination grades can be found here.
