We look forward to welcoming your son/daughter back to school on Thursday 23rd August 2018 to collect their results.
On results day your son/daughter will be provided with a grade for each subject examined. Along with this they will, where available, be given a uniform mark scale (UMS) score. This UMS score allows you to compare your child’s mark against the relevant grade boundaries supplied by each examination boards. Those grade boundaries that have been released by examinations boards will be made available on results day and will also be accessible on the school’s website.
The school uses the UMS scores to judge if a subject grade is worth considering an appeal. This is generally done in September in consultation with each subject leader or Director of Learning. There is a financial cost for each appeal, the summary of which will be available on results day and accessible on the school’s website. If the grade is successfully appealed and changed this charge is refunded. In order for the school to appeal any results we need to obtain the candidate’s consent. The forms for this will be made available on results day and on the school’s website. As a parent you may also request an appeal for any subject grade for your son/daughter. The cost of any appeal requested by a parent will not be met by the school. Please send all requests to email@example.com – This will be processed by the school.
We are pleased that all our students have a plan in place for after Year 11, however if your son/daughter would like to discuss a new idea or would like some guidance then they are welcome to attend a Careers Guidance Appointment in School before the end of the summer term. Please feel free to email Wendy Kerley, U‐Explore Careers Adviser on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone School on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday to arrange this. Wendy will also be available on results day to offer guidance and support to students if required.
