Examination Appeals

IMPORTANT: Grades can go up, down or remain unchanged as the result of an appeal.

Teacher Assessed Grade (TAG) appeals must be initiated by you, the student – parents/carers are not able to do this on your behalf.

A separate form is required for each individual subject that you would like to appeal. Appeals are to be directed to the Deputy Headteacher (Academic), Mr Martin Hewitt, by emailing the appeal form found at the bottom of this page to [email protected]. Appeals must be submitted within the window of dates below, which apply to all students in the country and are set externally by JCQ.
