Examinations

RESULTS DAY

The GCSE results will be available on Thursday 25th August. 

Pupils should collect their results envelope between 9.00am – 9.30am from the school Whitla Hall. 

GCSE results are not available online as with A Level results. 

If a pupil cannot collect their envelope at this time there are a few alternative options.

· A family member or another pupil can collect the envelope of a pupil but only if the school has been contacted beforehand, giving the name of the alternative person who will be collecting the envelope.

·The results envelope will be left at reception after 9.30am and it can be collected anytime before the end of the school day.

·The results envelope will be posted home, first class, at the end of the school day.

·Results cannot be given out over the telephone or scanned in and sent to a pupil.

There will also be information in the envelope if a pupil, based on their examination results, wants to change their choice of A Level subjects.

Every effort will be made to accommodate a change in subject.  However, pupils should be aware that there could be constraints to any request based on either the combination of subjects chosen or the existing size of the classes involved.

It may also be necessary, based on the examination results, that a pupil must have an interview with a member of the Careers Department.  If this is the case there will be a note to that affect in the envelope.
