Exam Information

Exam Results Summer 2020 and Autumn Exam Season 2020
On August 17th the Government decided to use Centre Assessed Grades for GCSE and GCE examinations that were cancelled in summer.

If you wish to query a grade then you need to speak to Mrs Crompton or Miss Huddleston in the first instance and not to your teachers. You cannot appeal against your Centre Assessed Grades.

There is due to be a full examination season in Autumn 2020, with GCE exams in October and GCSE exams in November – contact Mr Hogan if you wish to discuss this option. The deadline for you to complete and submit an entry form (which is available from the Main Reception) is 2 September for GCE exams and 16 September for CGSE exams.

For further information please see the letter that was included with your results.
Exams and Bad Weather
In the event of bad weather in the region and the school being closed on exam days we will still attempt to open so that students have the opportunity to sit their exams. Students should report to the exam venue as previously advised by 8:50am for a morning exam and 12:50pm for an afternoon exam. Please note that students arriving late may not be able to sit the examination.

Students should not risk their safety to get to school if the conditions are particularly bad either in the area in which they live or around school. If a student misses or is late for an exam for any reason it is not possible for them to take it on another day. We can apply for special consideration in some situations but essentially exams that have been missed can only be retaken the following year.
Students are only allowed to write with a black pen for all external exams. Students should come to their exams with all the equipment they need including black pens, pencils, mathematical equipment, a calculator and any other permitted equipment for specific exams. All equipment must be brought into the exam room in a transparent pencil case. Students are allowed to bring bottled water into exams but the bottles must not have any labels on them. Students must not bring a mobile phone, a smart watch or any other internet-enabled device into the exam room – doing so would almost certainly result in disqualification.
DDA Access Policy for Examinations
St Wilfrid’s is committed to equality of opportunity and is keen to promote a learning and working environment that is inclusive, celebrates diversity and does not discriminate against any group. Please see the full policy which is available below.
External Examination Certificates
Certificates from Summer 2019 are available for collection from the Main Office during normal Academy opening hours.

Certificates are the property of the student named on them and the student must sign for them on receipt. If a student wishes to ask anyone else to collect them on their behalf (including a parent) then the person collecting them needs to have ID and a signed permission note from the student.

If you have a query about your results or certificates from when you took exams here please email enquiries@saintwilfrids.co.uk including your full name, DOB, the address where you were living while you were a student here and the Year(s) when you took your exams. We don't post certificates as we need a signature on receipt.
