GCSE 2021

How we assess GCSE qualifications this academic year

The government has said that many exams and assessments cannot be held fairly this year as a result of the disruption students have faced due to the pandemic.

Our teachers are required to submit grades to the exam boards, based on their assessment of what pupils have shown they know and can do, enabling them to progress to the next stage of their education, training or employment.

The following guides outline the arrangements in place for awarding grades in summer 2021, and where to go for additional information.
