Awarding Grades 2021  

Updated 28th May 2021

Following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the UK government has decided that the Summer 2021 examination series will not go ahead as planned. Instead, teachers will determine your grades, based upon a range of evidence verified by the school.


These results will then be reviewed by the exam boards who designed each course, before awarding the final grades which reflect your performance on content you have been taught, and allow you to confidently progress to the next stage of your education or into employment.


This page is an overview of the most important information that you and your parents or guardians need to know about how we will determiine your grades at Kimberley School this summer.

Documentation published by government organisations overseeing the process:
