IMPORTANT DATES

GCSE Contingency day - 24 June 2020 - all year 11 students need to be available for this day

It is now a requirement of the Joint Council for Qualifications that all students being entered for exams in Summer 2020 are available until the end of June 2020. Specifically until the contingency day on Wednesday 24 June. Please see guidance given below from the JCQ which provides an explanation on how this day might be used and its purpose.

Contingency day, June 2020 examination series

How might the contingency day be used in the June 2020 examination series?

In the highly unlikely event that there is national disruption to a day of examinations in summer 2020, the awarding bodies will liaise with the qualification regulators and the DfE to agree the most appropriate option for managing the impact. As a last resort the affected examinations will be rescheduled. Although every effort would be taken to keep the impact to a minimum, it is possible that there could be more than one timetable date affected following the disruption, up to and including the contingency day on 24 June 2020.

Centres will be alerted if it was agreed to reschedule the examinations and the affected candidates will be expected to make themselves available in such circumstances.

Where candidates choose not to be available for the rescheduled examination(s) for reasons other than those traditionally covered by special consideration, they will not be eligible for enhanced grading arrangements.

Centres must therefore ensure candidates and parents are aware of this contingency arrangement so that they may take it into account when making their plans for the summer. However, the awarding bodies will not insist upon candidates being available throughout the entire timetable period as a matter of course.

The contingency day will become a standard feature of subsequent examination timetables.

 GCSE Results day - 20 August 2020

Any results not collected from the school by 12 noon will be posted, first class, to your home address - you should ensure the school has your correct address before school closes for summer on Friday 17 July 2020.  

If you are unable to collect your results you may:

  • arrange for your results to be given to you by telephone or email; or 
  • request that an adult relative collects your results on your behalf (identification must be shown when collecting the results).

 Please provide a letter to, Miss Blakey - Examinations officer, signed by the student before the end of term advising the method you would like to receive your results.
