Message to parents of Years 11, 13 and 14 students
Here is a link to a letter published today (3rd April 2020) by the Chief Regulator of Ofqual regarding how exam grades will be calculated and the process which Ofqual are outlining.
I want to re-assure you that we will work hard to do every young person justice but please read this letter carefully and please note that we cannot share any grades with you as we have been instructed to treat these as confidential.

Summer 2019 GCSE and GCE Certificates Update
All summer 2019 certificates are now available for collection.
Students who have left the Academy should report to A Block Reception. You will be asked to check, and sign for, your certificates before leaving with them. If you are sending somebody to collect the certificates on your behalf, please make sure they bring written permission from you to do so. Certificates will be held at the Academy for one year and we recommend that they are collected as soon as possible.
During term time, A Block Reception is open from 7.30am - 4.00pm, Monday to Thursday, and from 7.30am – 3.30pm on Fridays. If you are planning to collect your certificates over the Christmas holidays, we will be open from 8.00am – 3.30pm on Thursday 2nd January, and from 8.00am to 3.00pm on Friday 3rd January. From Monday 6th January, A Block Reception will be open from 7.30am - 4.00pm, Monday to Friday.
If you are currently in Year 12 at the Academy, your certificates are available for collection from Mrs Spencer’s office in the 6th Form Centre. You will be asked to check, and sign for, your certificates before leaving with them.

Guide to CATs
For more information about CATs, please see this document.
If you have lost your results within the last five years we can send you a copy of those results. We cannot help you with certificates; these are only produced by the exam boards and you will need to approach them directly. If your results span a period of five years or more, you must contact the exam boards directly.
If you can no longer remember which exam board your subjects were with, you should check whether a friend from school has their results, and ask them who their subjects were with as we do not hold that information. Follow this guideline here: https://www.gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate/if-your-old-exam-board-no-longer-exists

Please remember this is not a free service and each exam board will charge you for obtaining this information.
