Year 6 Transition

We are looking forward to welcoming your child to Bungay High School.

GCSE and A level Grading

Ofqual letter regarding summer 2020 examinations. Should you require any further information, this can be found on the Ofqual website.

Following the Ofqual and OCR updates on, Year 11 and 13 students should no longer submit work to their teachers for any subjects. There will also be no more work set for these classes.

After the Easter break, departments will set tasks for Year 11 that are designed to prepare students for Year 12 courses. They should complete the tasks that are set for the subjects they plan on studying next year.

We would encourage year 13 students who have applied to university to begin to undertake reading that is linked to their chosen course. Universities should be able to provide guidance on this, but school staff are also happy to support - please contact a teacher from the appropriate subject area(s).

Please could you refrain from contacting subject teachers regarding predicted grades, or the process that will be used to decide these. Any relevant updates on this process will be shared with all students, parents and carers in due course.
