Following on from the announcements of last week regarding the closure of schools and the cancellation of all examinations this summer, we understand that parents and students may be feeling confused and worried.
In particular, your son/daughter is part of the Lit First pathway at Sir John Hunt which means that they were due to sit the English Literature GCSE this summer. As all examinations have been cancelled for the summer, these will now not take place as planned in May.
Whilst we have been assured by the Department for Education that students in Year 11 and Year 13 will not be disadvantaged by the cancellation of the exams, and will have their grades awarded using a different methodology, we have not yet received any guidance relating to students due to sit examinations in Year 10. Please rest assured that as soon as more information is provided by the government, we will inform you.
In the meantime, please ask your child to continue with work which is being provided by their teachers and please contact us if you have any queries using the “Contact Us” form on the website.
