EXAMS 2021

On the 4th January the Prime Minister announced that summer exams will not go ahead as normal and on 13th the Secretary of State for Education – Gavin Williamson – wrote to the Chief Regulator at Ofqual stating that it is his firm policy position that alternative arrangements are needed to award GCSE and A Level qualifications this summer. He has asked Ofqual to consult on alternatives which should involve the awarding of grades based on teacher assessments. This consultation period will run until around 27th January. Once the relevant bodies have let schools and examination boards know how GCSE and A Level qualifications will be assessed and grades awarded, we will give Bath Academy students and parents information regarding how this will be arranged.

Please note that students at Bath Academy are well-placed in this situation due to their weekly formative assessments, mock exam results, and further assessments that will take place during the rest of the year. Teaching staff will be providing their normal support for students’ achievements and progression throughout the academic year.
