In the current circumstances, measures are in place for the safety and protection of all those involved in results day. To minimise the number of people in the building and venues at any one time, there is a schedule which we need everyone to please follow. On arrival, we ask that students keep to social distancing and do not congregate in groups. There will be a one way system and students only will need to collect their results and leave the building, unless they need specific advice about their next steps. Staff will be around to guide students. We ask that parents do not come into the School, unless they wish to attend an advisory meeting or are collecting results on behalf of their child.

On the morning of results day, UCAS Track will be updated from 8 am and students will know if they have been successful with their first or insurance offer or whether they are in Clearing. You will find helpful advice here.
Students who perform better than expected on results day can apply through Adjustment, by searching for courses with higher grade requirements than their original choices; this facility is available from results day and you will see the option to register for this in Track.
Clearing and Clearing Plus 2020
Students who do not meet any offers will see Clearing Plus in their Track and can use this and Clearing to find placesmatching grades achieved. Official vacancy lists of courses and Universities are published on the UCAS website. Once a course has been found, students will need to ring the university Admissions for that course and see if they will offer a place. Students can upload this choice from 3 pm on results day.
Further help and guidance needed?
Students can seek guidance about their next steps in W08 and access computers in W09. If students want to speak to Ms Holland for bespoke advice, they will need to visit reception for an appointment. Once an appointment has been made, parents can join the advisory meeting if they wish and will need to enter the School via the main reception. In the days that follow Ms Holland will be able to offer advice as needed until all students have access to:
• an appropriate and suitable university place
• suitable training or employment
• a clear plan for a gap year
An independent careers adviser will be available to support students, as required.
Please ensure that students bring with them:
• contact numbers for their Firm and Insurance Offers for University places, in case phone calls need to be made
• their UCAS Personal ID and username: only students have the username and it is very important they have this with them.
