I would also like to take this opportunity to respond to a number of questions from Year 11 students:
I have been offered a place in Verulam’s Sixth Form. What happens if my grades this summer do not meet all of the entry criteria?
If there any problems regarding meeting criteria for the Sixth Form or individual courses, please speak to Mr Tromans or Mr Ramsey on results day.
How will be results be issued and how will I collect them?
Results will be issued to schools in the normal way and will be available for collection on Thursday 20th August from 10am. Year 10 results from 11am.
A level results on 13th August from 9am.
What about English speaking grades?
All grades submitted to the exam board are subject to moderation by the examination board and therefore could change.
Will in class assessments be taken into account for calculated grades?
All evidence from the two year GCSE course will be used in the calculation of centre assessed grades.
What happens for summer work set by Beaumont or Sandringham?
The summer work for all A level courses will be available at induction. Bridging work is now availa- ble on the Verulam website for courses taught at Verulam.
What about retakes next year?
Ofqual have not yet published their plan in relation to retakes.
When will we know the status of our Sixth Form applications?
Sixth Form offers are confirmed after results day.
