The Secretary of State for Education recently announced that the 2020 exams in England would be cancelled to help fight the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

They have been working to develop a process which fairly recognises students’ work and makes sure they get their grades in time to progress.

They have now published details about how GCSEs will be awarded and have written an open letter to students who were expecting to be taking their exams this summer.  There is also useful guidance for parents.

Mrs Townshend and her team will be in touch with the Year 11 pupils and parents with more information shortly. In the meantime, please find out more here:
