  • COLLECTING RESULTS -  Results may be collected from Beechurst Hall between 10.00am and 12noon
  • UNABLE TO COLLECT IN PERSON? -  Anyone may collect results on your behalf, just please supply your chosen person with a letter of authorisation
  • UNCOLLECTED RESULTS  -  These will be posted first class on 24 August to the home address we have on our school system
  • RESULTS NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED? -  If you genuinely feel that your grade is lower than you were expecting and that you had revised properly, submitted good controlled assessment work, where applicable, and worked well in the written exams, then it is possible to put a request in to the exam board to ask them to conduct a review of your written paper.  Exam boards do not re-mark papers they review them to ensure that the mark scheme has been applied correctly.  Exam boards do charge for this service and for 2017 the fees are from £35.90 to £45.60 per paper.  An enquiry can only be submitted to the exam board upon receipt of payment and also a signed consent form.  Please note that you must contact Mrs Everitt, Exams Officer, by Monday 11 September 2017 if you wish to proceed.  Exam boards have very strict deadlines and any requests received after this date cannot be guaranteed to be processed in time.  If you wish to speak to Mrs Everitt, she will be available in Beechurst Hall on results day up 2.00pm, after that she will be back in school from Monday 4 September 2017.  You may e-mail or phone her and she will respond as soon possible.  ( / 01353 724111)

GCSE Certificates from Summer 2017
GCSE Certificates will be available from Monday 20 November 2017.  Class of 2017 may collect their certificates from reception between 8.00am and 4.00pm.  Anyone may collect on a student’s behalf as long as they have a letter of authorisation from the student.  Please make every effort to collect exam certificates and look after them carefully, they are often required when applying for university places or future employment.  Exam certificates are held in the centre for one year, after that time they may be destroyed.  Please be aware that replacements from exam boards are expensive.

Coursework Collection from Summer 2017
Written and practical coursework is not routinely returned to students.  If students require their coursework then they should contact the school reception and state which coursework is required and make suitable arrangements to collect it.  Please note that all coursework which remains uncollected by the end of the autumn term, will be disposed of.
