The page includes all correspondence that have been sent and details of how each subject will be gathering the evidence over the next few weeks to determined student grades. We will continue to contact parents directly with school communications with regards to TAGs, but please also check this page regularly for updates.

Updated on Wednesday 21 April:

  • Following a small number of queries from parents and students,  we would like to clarify that a range of evidence will be used to award student grades. A student that has performed particularly well or poorly in a previous PPE/ mock exam for example should not expect that this alone will determine their final grade. Different weightings will be given to different pieces of evidence.
