School Results 2020

Due to the unusual circumstances for exams this year, this page has been set up to allow you see information about GCSE and A Level results for July 2020.  This page will be updated accordingly.

This Thursday is the A level results release day. Sadly the school is closed so we are sending the results by email. We are hugely disappointed that we will not be having face to face meetings with students or parents, however your health and safety is our highest priority.

The results will be emailed out to each individual student's school email address. This may take some time so please be patient. We will also provide contact details and have staff available on the day to answer questions, offer congratulations and discuss next steps. 

It would be an excellent idea to check with your son or daughter that their school email address is working and that they have access to the inbox. If they need assistance then they should contact the CMAT helpdesk at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please be aware that this section of the school website is regularly updated and will contain all recently released information about this summer's grades and the appeals process.

Kind regards

Director of Outcomes

Your results, what next?

Understanding your qualifications grades this summer.  Guidance from gov.uk can be found at:

How to appeal against a qualification result/Request a review

You can challenge the result of a GCSE, AS level or A level qualification if: 

  • your school or college made a mistake when it sent your grading information 
  • your school or college thinks the result is wrong 
  • you have evidence of wrongdoing, including discrimination against you 

Further information can be found here

Who can request a GCSE, AS level or A level review?

You can ask your school or college to get a qualification result looked at again. 

What happens next?

The mark will be changed if the reviewer thinks it’s wrong. The new mark may be higher or lower than the original. 

You can ask your school or college’s exams officer for more information about their internal appeals procedure and their policy on reviews of marking and moderation. Documents can be found in the Results Documents Panel on the right of this page.

You can appeal against a review if you’re unhappy with the decision.

You or your school may have to pay if the mark is not changed. 

Further information can be found here and on the links below.

Remember stress and anxiety in such an unusual and unpredictable time is normal. Everyone reacts differently to stress, and that’s okay – we want to help you manage that stress though, and some tips for students and parents  can be found here

The OCR has set up a webpage   to help students prepare for results, provide details and answer key questions about summer 2020 results: what are the next steps? what is the date you can get results? what are the plans for taking exams next year? 

Their priority is to help students fulfil their potential and progress to the next level, whether that’s moving on to further or higher education, or into a job.
