GCSE and Exam Information
GCSEs and qualifications for the class of 2021
GCSE 2021 summer examinations have been cancelled. In their place, schools are required to provide a 'Centre Assessed Grade' that is based on a portfolio of evidence including mock examinations, other assessments and coursework. These will be supplemented by a number short assessments taken by students when they are back in school to ensure there is good evidence to base students final grades on. It is important that students get the grades that they deserve and that these grades can be subjected to close scrutiny by the exam boards and be upheld. Other qualifications such as BTECs and other technical courses will be subjected to similar rigours that accommodate the different style of the course.

The following guides provide information for students; which give a clearer indication of what to expect when taking examinations and how parents and carers can support their children through what can be an emotional time.
