GCSE Exams Summer 2021
There were suggestions last week from the Government’s Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson, that they were in discussions with the Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) regarding moving the GCSE exams in the Summer of 2021 to allow more time for students to study for them.
There is no confirmation at this moment in time, but proposals are to be issued for consultation before the end of this term. We are aware that this will have an impact on parents who may be looking at booking holidays for next Summer and it will impact on the date of our Leaver’s Prom should they make the decision to delay the exams for a few weeks.
Please take this into consideration when making plans for next year, and as soon as there is confirmation of a clearer picture we will update our website and let all parents/carers of children due to sit exams next Summer know.
