17th August Update:
After a Government announcement today I am pleased to confirm that Year 11 GCSE students this Thursday will now be awarded grades determined by their teachers, called Centre Assessment Grades (CAGs).
Likewise, for those A Level students who were awarded lower grades by exam boards last Thursday, their grades will also revert back to the original CAGs.
On one hand I am extremely thrilled for all the young people in both Year 11 and 13 who will now receive grades that represent the hard work many have put in throughout their time at The Warriner School, whilst on the other hand, so disappointed in the stress, anxiety and worry this process has caused too many of you.

We will send further detail as it emerges this week – for now I look forward to seeing our Year 11 students on Thursday.
Mr Lowdell, Head of School

On 18 March 2020, the Secretary of State for Education announced that the summer 2020 GCSE, AS and A level exam series would be cancelled in order to help fight the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and that students due to sit the exams would be awarded a grade based on an assessment of the grade they would have been most likely to achieve had exams gone ahead.

On 23 March, in a written statement to Parliament, the Secretary of State explained the government’s intention that results would be issued to this year’s cohort based on a range of evidence and data, including performance on mock exams and non-exam assessment. School or college-based assessment already has an important role in many GCSEs, AS and A levels and in extraordinary circumstances such as these, schools and colleges are best placed to judge the likely performance of their students at the end of the course.

Ofqual and exam boards will do everything they can to make sure grades awarded this year are as fair as possible for students. This will include putting all centre assessment grades through an external standardisation process to better ensure that grades are comparable between schools and colleges.

The Joint Council for Qualifications have provided this graphic explanation of the grading process:
