GCSE results will be published on Thursday 24th August this year. They will be available from 8.30 a.m. until 11 a.m. from Hall 1. Please enter the school through main reception.

All year 11 students are encouraged to come into school on this day. Staff will be here to support them and ensure that they are able to secure their place at Kimberley Sixth Form or answer any questions about results and what this means for destinations for September.

Independent careers advice will be available for appointments in school on the 24th and 25th August.
With a record number of applications for Year 12 this year, we know that students will be keen to secure their place as soon as possible on the 24th August. In order to enrol in the sixth form, once they have their results, they need to head to Hall 2 where a member of staff will go through the enrolment process.

We appreciate what a stressful time the results period can be, but also know from experience that the vast majority of students will have cause for satisfaction and celebration.

Supporting exam stress, a parent’s guide

Exam season can be a very daunting time for some young people, whereas others seem to just take in in their stride. As parents/carers, you may also be feeling under pressure as you want your child to be able to do their best and put the required effort in. You may find that helping them get motivated and organised for revision is an uphill struggle. If you are concerned, contact your child’s tutor in the first instance for support and advice.

If you’re worried about your child’s exams and the marks they might get, imagine how overwhelming it might be for them. Preparing for and sitting exams can be a very pressured time, and then, once the exams are finished, it's a countdown to the results which can be equally stressful.

As a parent you can really help your children through this time just by being there for them and trying to keep things in perspective whilst encouraging them to talk about their feelings and fears.

You can also help by ensuring your child:
 

• Eats well and has good sleep habits

• Exercises to boost energy levels, clear the mind and relieve stress

• Plans a revision schedule that includes ‘down time’. Students receive a lot of support with this through life skills lessons, assemblies and tutor times
