School Closure

How GCSEs, AS & A levels will be awarded in summer 2020 - GOV.UK


Friday 3 April 2020

Ofqual, the organisation in charge of assessment throughout England, has today announced how it intends to award grades for GCSEs and A levels. Full details can be found in the links below.

We understand that students, parents and carers will be anxious and have many questions but, in accordance with the details from Ofqual, we have to make it very clear that at all information regarding grades and order of students will be confidential and we will not be able to disclose this information to you.

Ofqual have stated that ‘they are working hard to get results out as soon as is possible – results will not be delayed after the dates they were expected in August, and ideally they will be issued a little earlier, so you can have the certainty you need.’
