Enquiries about results

6th Form students who are concerned about their grades should speak to a senior member of staff and the Exams Officer on results day.

GCSE students who are near to grade boundaries will be identified and may be funded by the school for a enquiry about their result. If this is the case students will be written to early in September to obtain permission. Students not written to can still request a review by completing a Post Results Services Form and returning this to the Exams Officer with relevant payment before the deadline.  Candidates whose results increase in grade will have the fee refunded.
