KS4 Presentation Evening 2020

November 19th, 2020 Comments off

Normally, at this time, we would be writing to our outgoing Year 11 students to confirm the plans for an upcoming GCSE Presentation Evening. However, despite our optimism around being able to host the event, current government guidance on COVID-19 related to social distancing and the size of gatherings permitted, means that we will sadly be unable to do so as planned. However, we would still like to offer our students an opportunity to mark their results and achievements, so we produced these Presentation Booklets.

We celebrate student successes by awarding individual subject awards and presentation of annual trophy awards. These are outlined in the following booklets:

Andover Schools join forces to celebrated GCSE Results 2020

August 20th, 2020 Comments off

Secondary schools across Andover are joining forces this year to celebrate the achievements of the class of 2020. The collaborative approach has been designed to recognise students’ success beyond just their academic results. The emphasis this year on GCSE results day will be to put other qualities and attributes in the spotlight such as personal responsibility, resilience and strength of character.

With the government cancelling the summer series of GCSE exams, Andover’s Year 11 students did not have the opportunity to independently determine their own academic outcomes. This year Ofqual (the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) asked schools to use their professional experience to make a fair and objective judgement of the grade they believe students would have achieved had they sat their exams. These judgements (called Centre Assesses Grades) were based on a full range of evidence including work done in class, non-exam assessments, course work and homework. To ensure the grades are fair between schools, the exam boards used a standardisation model developed with Ofqual. Read more…
