Message regarding the cancellation of the 2020 Examinations

To Pupils/Parents/Carers.

As you will now be aware, the Government have announced that this years examinations in May and June will not take place. This is unprecedented in peacetime. Over the coming days, weeks and months, we will be working closely with Ofqual, the JCQ, DfE and awarding bodies to inform how the impact of this decision can be managed.

As you read this, we are working to provide you with more details as soon as is possible. Our thoughts are with you at this really difficult time but please be assured we will be doing everything we can to ensure that no pupil is penalised due to these extraordinary circumstances.

We will be posting updates as and when they become available, below are links to the latest information that we have.
