Results Day - GCSE & A Level

Results Day 2020

GCSE Results Day

GCSE Results Day takes place on Thursday 20th August.

In order that we stay safe during the pandemic, we ask that you do not drive on to the school site. However, one parent is welcome to accompany their child on to the school site if this is their wish. We have also asked that your child come along to pick up their results during the following time slots so that we can ensure that social distancing measures are adhered to:

  • 9.00am – 9:15am: students with a surname beginning with letters ‘’A – G’’
  • 9:15am – 9:30am: students with a surname beginning with letters ‘’H – M’’
  • 9:30am – 9:45am: students with a surname beginning with letters ‘’N – R’’
  • 9:45am – 10.00am: students with a surname beginning with letters ‘’S – Z’’

I have reminded students that there is no process by which they can appeal their grade this year. If they are dissatisfied with the grade that has been awarded by the exam board in any one of their subjects, then they should enter themselves for the Autumn Examination Series. In order for entries to be processed they will have one week to complete the relevant paperwork and this can be collected on GCSE Results Day. If they do not intend to progress in to Year 12 at Langton Girls’ Grammar, our best advice is to contact their school of choice. If they are staying with us we will support them with this process from August to Autumn.

Enrolment

We have also asked that students do not charge off to celebrate too soon and that they confirm their A Level choices upon receipt of their GCSE results. Every year it is the case that I talk to some students who change their mind about which subject they will study. This is fine. I often have the pleasure of talking to others who have done so well in a particular subject that this convinces them to change their mind about an A Level option and there are many more reasons besides why they might have a change of heart… or not!

I have told students that if they are aware that they will be absent on 20th August, they must inform me, in advance, via e-mail by July 31st. Students may want someone else to pick up their results, in which case we will require their proof of identity on the day (even if it is a parent who will collect these!) and confirmation of their A Level choices in writing. Equally, I have let students know that if they prefer that I contact them by telephone to provide them with their results and confirmation of their A Level choices, then they should let me know the best number to contact them on. Any results that are not collected on 20th August will be posted home to the address that we hold on SIMS.

Beyond

Term starts for all Year 12 students on Wednesday 2nd September at 9:30am as part of their induction in to the Sixth Form and all Sixth Form students will be in school from 8:45am on Thursday 3rd September. On which note, a reminder that all students at the Langton Girls’ Grammar will return to full time education, including access to the Langton Extended Curriculum in the Sixth Form. Please see our video below for an introduction to life in the Sixth Form that was filmed during Lockdown:

 

 

Finally, in knowing that the KCC bus company’s intention was to run services at the usual times at the start and end of the school day, we have planned for a ‘’normal’’ timetable which starts at 8:45am and ends at approximately 3:25pm each day. This year, and as members of the Sixth Form, students will almost certainly have the opportunity to leave the school site if they do not have any lessons in the afternoon so that we can continue to all stay safe. We will, however, provide ‘’Prep Rooms’’ for students to stay and this will be important for their success at A Level.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries.

Kind regards,

Mr Senechal
