Year 11 Exam Information
The summer 2021 GCSE exam series has been cancelled. The government have informed that pupils will be graded using teacher assessment and that an algorithm will not be used to assess these grades. Grades will be awarded fairly and consistently as a result of additional training and Ofqual support. It is essential that Year 11 pupils continue to engage with remote learning provided, as teachers are likely to need as much evidence as possible in order to inform their assessments. At this stage, the school has no further guidance on the matter, but will keep parents/carers informed with any additional information received.
The school’s lateral flow test centre is open for pupils and staff currently in school. All relevant information regarding testing, including the testing schedule, has been distributed to relevant parents/carers. More information about the test can be found here.
