Daily update 16th July 2020 – September

Thank you for your feedback and questions about the information that was sent out yesterday about September.  Please continue to send these through to us by replying to the daily update emails.  As we have not had many questions so far, we will respond individually to what we have received.

Ofqual consultation on next year’s GCSE & A Level exams

The consultation period finishes today.  If you are a parent of a student in Years 10 or 12, it is worth having a read of the document at the link below, particularly pages 16 to 25 for GCSEs and pages 26 to 43 for A Levels as this compares the normal exam to the proposal for next year for each subject.  It doesn’t cover any vocational subjects.

We understand that the outcome of the consultation will be published in August so I will communicate this with you all when it is available.
