Firstly, let me say what a pleasure it has been to see your children back in school over the last few days. I hope they have enjoyed linking up with their friends and their teachers again, and have been able to focus on getting back into the routine of school and the requirements of exam boards for their qualifications this summer.
With this in mind, I write with an update and some important information for you on the way GCSE, AS and A level qualifications will be assessed this summer. You can find a letter, addressed to students across Wales, HERE, and details of the things we will be doing as a school below.
You will already know that:
We are acutely aware of the pressure that some students will be feeling as the evidence gathering process continues over the next few weeks, and want to reassure you that we will do our very best to schedule questions and tasks as sensitively as possible during that period.

We feel that one of the most important things we can do to help is to give you accurate and timely information. So we would like to invite you to:
We hope that you find this information useful and will take the time to look through it with your son or daughter to support them at this important time. If we can offer any further assistance, guidance or support, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
With kind regards,
