At Kelvin Hall School we work hard to prepare all of our pupils for their exams and help them to achieve their full potential.
In order for us to do this, pupils must also work hard and be aware of what is expected of them when they come to sit an exam.
This page sets out some of the upcoming exam dates and important information that pupils will need in order to succeed.
End of Year Assessments - Years 7 to Year 10
We are intending to conduct 'End of Year Assessments' between Monday 7th June - Friday 25th June. As soon as the exam timetable has been finalised we will send this home, however, there will still be other assessments being conducted in classrooms between these weeks. Please endeavour to avoid your child being out of school during this 3-week period. Thank you.
Examinations Summer 2021
Due to the cancellation of exams this year by the Government, qualification grades for all students will now be Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG). Once we have all the finalised information from Ofqual and JCQ, we will put all the documentation into this section for you.
Exam Results Day 2021
GCSE and all Vocational exam results will be available to students on Thursday 12th August.
Further details regarding the results day will be communicated to parents and students once arrangements have been finalised.
Useful Guides for Parents & Students
Please see attached guides produced by TheParentsGuide.co.uk which we think you may find helpful in the build up to the exam season.
Follow this link for the Kelvin Independence website.
Certificates generally become available to students in the November after they sit their exams in the Summer.
We will contact you nearer to the time to arrange collection of your certificates.
Your certificates are very valuable & should be kept safe at all times. If you lose them, you will be charged by the awarding bodies for replacements or statement of results, whichever the board provides. They do not all send replacement Certificates. You will be charged for each search you request to each of the Boards. Prices vary from board to board.
KEEP CERTIFICATES SAFE
Years 9, 10 and 11 are the most important...
Years 9, 10 and 11 are the most important years of your academic development and lay the foundation for your future career and aspirations. Please, don’t waste this important stage of your development.
Embrace the challenge, be attentive in class, prepare coursework correctly, revise your studies appropriately and sit your examinations with confidence.
There is nothing like the feeling of having achieved and being able to move forward with your life plans. Hopefully when it comes to your GCSE exam results day you will be one of the many pupils who is inspired and filled with pride after receiving the results that you truly deserve.
Good luck to you all!
