On Monday 17th August, Northern Ireland, Wales and then England joined Scotland in stating that all Centre Assessed A level and GCSE grades would be honoured and replace those published, or about to be published, by their Examination Boards.

This is a positive announcement as it will mean a number of grades received by many of our students will increase. We also understand for some students who received their A Level results last Thursday that this change could also impact on their chosen university place. As it stands we have not received any information on this directly from UCAS or university admissions but if you are a parent or a student who have concerns or queries regarding this please do not hesitate to contact us here at school as guidance should be issued very soon on this.

Students and parents are asked not to approach individual teachers to ask for grades, centre assessed grades will be issued formally once the school has received further guidance from the relevant exam boards.

Please also be aware that the Cambridge International Board, who oversee many of our qualifications, have yet to change their policy but are due to make an announcement on Tuesday 18th August and we will let you know as soon as we hear anything from them.

Thank you all again for your patience and cooperation through this difficult time.
