Examinations and Revision

Examinations and Results Summer 2021

The Department for Education announced earlier in the year that GCSE and A-level exams will not go ahead this summer and that grades will instead be awarded by teachers.

In line with the new regulations for this process we have had to produce a Centre Policy for determining teacher assessed grades in summer 2021.

Please use this link to view a copy of the schools policy.


Results days will be earlier than usual this summer.

A Level on Tuesday 10 August - Please come into school (Sixth Form study area) between 8.30am and 11.00am

GCSE on Thursday 12 August - Please come into school (main hall) between 9.00am and 11.30am.

There will be staff on hand in school to support students with their next steps arrangements, if required. 

If students are not able to come into school then please contact the exams officer by emailing exams@highfield.herts.sch.uk to make alternative arrangements.


Once you have received your results, if you would like to appeal any of your teacher assessed grades please read this document which outlines the appeals process.
