Summer 2021 Examinations for Years 10 and 11

21st October 2020

Dear Parent/carer

Summer 2021 Examination Series

I am writing to make you aware of the latest important information from the Examination boards, affecting all students taking examinations next summer.

A provisional common exam timetable has now been agreed by the awarding bodies. The GCSE summer 2021 exam series is due to commence on Monday 24th May until Friday 2nd July 2021. GCSE results will be released to candidates on Friday 27th August 2021.

The final timetable will be circulated as soon as all the exam dates have been published and confirmed. Candidates will receive a personalised exam timetable in spring after our entries have been submitted to the exam boards.

Parents of students in Year 10 should note that the English Literature exams are provisionally timetabled for Monday 7th June and Monday 21st June 2021

The college has no influence with regards to the exam dates set; these are agreed by the awarding bodies. Please be aware that there are no allowances for absence related to holidays taken on these dates.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mrs E Duell
