AS-Level results Update

Following the awarding of AS and A level results last Thursday, I would like to congratulate all of our students who have worked incredibly hard over so many years of study. However, as I am sure you will have seen, the picture regarding the awarding of AS and A level grades has been extremely concerning with too many students across Wales not receiving the grades that they deserved. Earlier today, the Education Minister announced that there has been a change in policy: all grades will now be awarded on the basis of Centre Assessment Grades, the grades provided by the school. For those students for whom the system produced higher grades than those predicted by their teachers, the higher grades will stand. The WJEC have accepted this change in policy and are now in the process of reissuing A level, AS level and Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate grades to students.

Regarding vocational qualifications, the WJEC have stated that discussions are on-going to determine the approach to vocational qualifications and we will continue to update you as this situation develops.

We will send you the reissued grades when they are available to us. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Unable to Collect Results?

If you are unable to collect your results from the school on the indicated days, you can have them posted to you. You will need to give a stamped self-addressed envelope to Mrs Allen, Examinations Officer, before the end of the school year. Your results will then be posted to you the afternoon of results day. Sorry, we can not give results out over the telephone, by e-mail or fax. We can not give them to a friend to deliver to you.

If you want someone else to collect your results on your behalf, you must provide Mrs Allen with a signed letter of authority giving permission for that person to collect your results.

If you have any questions regarding examinations please don't hesitate to contact our Examination officer, Mrs Allen on 01633 653114 or email
