Exams Information for Y11 Parents 18th March 2021

Following the pandemic's disruption to education for the last two years and the cancellation of exams this summer, secondary schools must now award Year 11 students their grades.

Dear Parent/Carer

We have worked hard in the first week back with our students to ensure they have a clear understanding of what their remaining weeks in Year 11 look like and how we will fairly award their grades.

Although we have experience of awarding students’ exam grades from the previous year, I’m sure that many parents/carers will have lots of questions (some of which we are still awaiting confirmation on ourselves). Within this letter there are some responses to what we’d consider as frequently asked questions but in order to offer you the opportunity to ask other questions about your child’s exams we will be holding a parents’ exam information evening online on Thursday 22nd April. During this evening we will be able to share all the information we have on the process. Details on how to join this virtual event will follow in due course.

Until then, please read through the frequently asked questions below. For any subject specific questions your child can speak directly to their teacher. For more general questions the information evening will give you the opportunity to ask them directly.

Many thanks for your ongoing support.

Yours sincerely

Mr Rich Bowns
Vice Principal
