COVID-19 & Summer Examinations
It has been announced that GCSE and A Level examinations will not be taking place this summer. We appreciate that this is a worry for students and their parents and we do not yet have a clear understanding from the government as to how grades will be awarded. However, it is important to note that the government has stated that grades will still be awarded.
At this stage, we understand that Ofqual will calculate grades based on a range of data, including mock assessments and coursework. Therefore, we expect all GCSE and A Level students to continue completing coursework and working as if they were sitting summer exams, as we do not know what exact considerations will be made by the exam boards.
I take this opportunity to thank the Academy’s dedicated staff who have been brilliant in their resilience and resolve during this time of uncertainty. They have worked tirelessly to ensure students are minimally impacted by the disruptions.
Furthermore, we thank the students for their calm and mature approach in this highly disruptive period.
By working closely together with parents, our students will continue to receive a high level of education and support that they deserve.
