The Summer 2021 examination series could not take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Hamble School has been working closely with the Awarding Bodies, JCQ and Ofqual to ensure that all Year 11 students have the opportunity to achieve to their fullest potential in an otherwise challenging year for them.

This page has been set up to highlight the next steps on their transition from school to college or alternatives and what help is available to them. Here you will be able to find all the information regarding Results Day and Appeals processes as well as useful links from JCQ and Ofqual. The Hamble School’s Centre Policy on how Teacher Assessed Grades were awarded this summer has also been provided to give you an insight into the work carried out by teaching staff and SLT this term. The Centre policy was approved by OCR.

What happens next?

We all hope that you will all be ecstatic about the grades you have received. However, sometimes reality is a little bit different. Once you have opened your results, have a good look at them to make sure that everything appears to be in order. Use this opportunity to talk to members of SLT about your grades and advise you on the next steps available.

When considering your next steps and appeals, please remember that grades can go up as well as down as a result of an Appeal.

There are some strict deadlines that The Hamble School have to adhere to during the Appeals process. Our internal deadlines are as follows. We would appreciate it if you could also follow these key dates when submitting Appeals.
