On this page you will find information about how year 11 will be completing their assessments in GCSE and vocational subjects in summer 2021. 

Each student will create a ‘portfolio’ of assessment work which will be used to determine their final grade. The portfolio will be made up of work that has been completed as part of the students’ GCSE and vocational courses. Every subject has produced an assessment plan to outline the following information:

  • Content that has been covered through the course to date (unit and topic information)
  • Content that was assessed during the mock exams in November 2020 and December 2020.
  • Content that will be assessed between 08 March 2021 and 28 May 2021.

Students will only be assessed on content that they have already covered as part of their courses.

The first assessment plan in each subject covers the period of time between 08 March 2021 and 01 April 2021. The second assessment plan will cover the period of time between 19 April 2021 and 28 May 2021. The latter document will be published once we have had a chance to review the assessment material that is released by the exam boards for each subject (we expect this material to be released by late March 2021).

I hope you find this information useful. If you have any questions about the assessments that will take place in individual subjects please email the relevant curriculum leader, Click to view staff contact details
