Appointment to see Mr Philpott or Mr Lobo
You can make an appointment to see Mr Philpott or Mr Lobo, on results day, Thursday 16th August, between 10am and 1pm, on an appointment only basis.
Mr Philpott will also be available the following day, Friday 17th August between 8am - 10am.
Appointments for either session will need to be booked via the school office.

Remark of exam papers
Once you pick up your results, look at the raw scores and try and work out how far you are off grade boundaries (via the exam board websites, subject staff or Mrs Murphy who will have this information). If your mark is a long way off the grade boundary then a request for a remark is very unlikely to result in a change to your grade. If you are 1 or 2 marks (or a few marks) off the grade boundary then a remark might result in your grade changing. However exam boards do check the marking of those papers that are very close to the grade boundaries before the results are released, so do not expect a request for a remark to change your grade. That being said it is worth making a formal appeal as soon as you can.
You can see the grade boundaries for each exam for individual exam boards on their websites.
Please see this document for the exam board links.
If you have an offer for a university place and your results are below the grades required to meet their offer then you may request a ‘priority remark’.
You must complete the request form and return it to the examination office with the appropriate payment, as indicated at the bottom of the form, by Wednesday 22nd August.
The school office will be open on Friday 17th August from 10am - 12pm for students to drop in forms and cheques at reception.
Requests for an ‘ordinary remark’ need to be made by Monday 17th September. Please complete this form and return with the appropriate fee, as indicated on the bottom of the form.
Access to exam papers
Students may want to see their scripts for various reasons; to see how it has been marked as part of the application to have a remark, or to keep as a record of their achievement.
Photocopies of exam papers are available from the exam boards prior to the actual papers being available. This allows students to review their scripts and request a remark before the original papers have been released.
After the original papers have been returned it is not possible to have a remark as the papers could be altered.
Requests for photocopies need to be ordered by Thursday 23rd August. Please complete this form and return with the appropriate fee as indicated on the form.
School will be closed except for Friday 17th August from 10am to 12pm when you can drop off your form and cheque at reception and Wednesday 22nd August from 10am - 12pm when you can drop off your form and cheque at the exams office.
Originals of exam papers may also be requested and the forms will need to be submitted to the Examination officer by Tuesday 2nd of October. Please complete this form and return with the appropriate fee as indicated on the form.
