Examination Results 2020

We would very much like to  invite you in to collect your results on Results Days this year, subject to changes in Government Guidance.

To allow this event to be as safe as possible, it is very important that the following measures are strictly adhered to.

If you are experiencing any symptoms or are feeling unwell on the day, do not come into school. Please let us know and we will make other arrangements for you.

Whilst on school grounds, everyone must wear a face covering or visor and adhere to social distancing guidelines.  This may change subject to Government Guidance.

A Level/Level 3 BTEC/RSL Level 3 results are released on Thursday 13 August 2020 Students can collect their results from 9.00am. Please enter the school grounds via the main Shooting Field entrance only.

GCSE/Level 2 BTEC/RSL Level 2 results are released on Thursday 20 August 2020 These results can be collected by the student from 9.00am. Please enter the school grounds via the main Shooting Field entrance only.

Students who are unable to collect their results in person may give a relative or friend a signed letter giving that person permission to collect the results on their behalf.

Results will not be given out by telephone and will be emailed only to Boarders.

Any uncollected results, will be sent to you by post to the address we currently have on file for you.  If you have moved, please advise us of your new address.

Safety Measures:

  • All students/parents must wear a face covering or visor whilst on site.
  • There will be a one way system in place which all students/parents must adhere to.
  • There will be staff members directing you on the day.
  • There will be hand sanitising stations in place to minimise the risk of infection.
  • Due to current Government guidelines, all visitors are advised to be on school grounds for no longer than 15 minutes.

Following collection of A Level results, any students requiring further assistance with clearing and progression pathways will be directed to the new Technology block where a member of the Sixth Form Team will be on hand to help.

Following collection of GCSE results, further meetings and discussions will take place virtually.  Please see the flow chart "After GCSE Results Day" below.

Locker Keys:

We will have a station for locker keys to be returned by students - these should be handed over in an envelope detailing the student's name, the locker number and the room number/location of the locker.  A refund of £5 will be given where the key is returned.

Return of textbooks:

We will also have stations for textbooks to be returned by students - we are keen to recover as many as we possibly can.

Appealing exam results

Our policy and the relevant forms for appealing exam results are below.  The deadline for requesting to see Centre Assessed Grades is the 8th September 2020.  The deadline for appealing exam grades is 10th September 2020.

Please note:  The national regulations for appeals are very strict.  Students cannot appeal against  their grades unless they believe SGS or the exam board has made an administrative error.  They cannot appeal against teacher judgements or exam board moderation of grades.


Additional Exam Series - Autumn 2020

Ofqual confirmed on 30th June that any student unable to receive a calculated result in Summer 2020, and others who would like the opportunity to attempt to improve their grades, will have an opportunity to take the full suite of GCSE, AS and A-level exams in the Autumn.

Summer 2020 Certificates

JCQ regulations advise that non collected certificates are held for 12 months only, after which they are destroyed.  It is your responsibility to ensure you collect your certificates/supply a correct postal address/keep certificates safe.  Exam Boards issue significant charges for replacements.

AS, A-level and GCSE Certificates for the Summer 2020 Series will be received in school in October/November, subject to no further disruption.

AS and A-level Certificates will be collated and made ready for collection towards the end of December.  We will hold them in the Exams Office until 15th January 2021 for you (or someone with your written consent) to pick them up during term time in normal school hours.  Any certificates not collected will be posted to you on 18th January 2021, by 'signed for' delivery, to the address we currently have on file for you.

GCSE Certificates will be collated and made ready for collection by students continuing at SGS Sixth Form towards the end of December.  These students will receive notification of this nearer the time.  If you have left SGS, your certificates will be posted to you in January 2021 by 'signed for' delivery, to the address we currently have on file for you.

If you have recently moved, please ensure we have the correct address for you.  If you would like your certificates to be sent to an alternative address, please let the Exams Office know in writing by 31st October 2020.
