This page contains the latest information about exams, including statutory guidance and notices provided by JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications).  Additionally you will find information about forthcoming exam seasons, a full exam timetable for any forthcoming exams and forms to be completed if an exam result appeal is required. 

Results days

Our Summer 2020 results day guidance for students, parents and carers can be downloaded below. This contains information on when results are available to collect, what to do if you are not able to come in on results day, and the procedures we are putting in place to keep students and staff safe. 

The detailed plans for results day will be published nearer the time, so that we can work within the social distancing guidance in place at the time.

Results are released to students:

  • A-Level and AS-level results are available from 9:00am on Thursday 13 August 2020
  • GCSE results are available from 9:00am on Thursday 20 August 2020

On each of the results days there are a number of services available to support students and families with regard to
decision making and next steps. It is also an opportunity for celebration of the excellence achieved by so many. On
results days:

  • There is support for A-level students needing to contact Universities or go through clearing
  • Sixth Form staff available to discuss option choices, changes and to support with applications to join our Sixth Form

Available to download below are:

  • Summer 2020 results day guidance for students, parents and carers
