Dear Students/Parents

I am writing to give you further guidance on what our results day will look like this year. As we are all very aware, this year has been one filled with unprecedented change that couldn’t have been predicted at the beginning of the academic year. In line with the current guidance, we will be able to issue students with their grades on their designated ‘results day.’ 

This year results days will be:

  • Sixth Form Results Day will be on August 13 2020
  • Year 10 & 11 (GCSE) Results Day will be on August 20 2020

Due to current social distancing guidance, this year we are conducting our results days in a slightly differently way.  We are planning to e-mail all students their results using the school e-mail system.   This means all students will receive their results electronically on the same e-mail address that this message is being delivered on.  We will aim to send these results between 9am and 10am of the morning of the results day. 

To support students we will have key staff and representatives from The Sixth Form Team as well as Kent and Christ Church Universities available in school if students/parents wish to contact us via phone on 01227 463971 or via e-mail at exams@canterbury.kent.sch.uk

If students do not wish to receive their results via e-mail, they may collect them in person from Main School Reception between 1pm and 4pm by prior arrangement only.  Please book in advance by contacting the exams team on exams@canterbury.kent.sch.uk to receive an allocated slot.

As you are probably aware students this year will receive results that have been calculated by the exam boards.  The school has submitted predicted subject grades using a formula provided by the Government (Ofqual), which is one of the criteria exam boards will then include to help them produce final grades.  A huge amount of time and effort has gone into ensuring that these are fair and representative of each student’s ability in each of their subjects. 

The Government (Ofqual) have stated that students/parents will be unable to directly appeal their predicted grades and, instead, has offered an alternative exam season in October and November for those students who wish to sit their exams.  As we are currently still waiting for final guidelines on how this process will work, we shall include further information in the e-mail students will receive on their results day. 

If you have any questions about the results day process, please do not hesitate to contact the Exams Team at exams@canterbury.kent.sch.uk

​We remain incredibly proud of our students and how each of them have handled this incredibly challenging situation. I also wish to remind you that we are here to support them as they progress on to their next stage of learning. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the relevant Head of School: 

Mr Brooke – Head of the Senior School (jbrooke@canterbury.kent.sch.uk)

Mrs Winslow – Head of Sixth Form (lwinslow@canterbury.kent.sch.uk)

Mr Hadlow – Director of Post-16 Studies (shadlow@canterbury.kent.sch.uk)

Kind regards, 

The Exams Team
