No pupil is permitted to collect another pupil’s results, and no telephone calls or emails will be made to parents with results information. If neither the student nor a parent is available to collect the results, students can arrange for another adult to collect them – please let the school know in advance the name of that person.
Certificates are normally available from the first week of November from 8am – 4pm.

New GCSE grading system
The new English Language, English Literature and Mathematics GCSE courses have now begun and they will now be assessed differently with pupils achieving grades 9-1 rather than A*-G. Other subjects will use the new grades from 2018.
A good pass is considered to be a grade 5 and pupils who do not achieve this in English and Mathematics will have to retake the examination until they do, although for the first year, the government will consider a good pass to be grade 4.
Approximately the same proportion of pupils who currently achieve:
• grade A or higher will receive a grade 7 or higher
• grade C or higher will receive a grade 4 or higher.
The school is making a gradual change towards the new grades and until this is complete you will see both old letter grades and new numerical grades on reports.
