2019 Key Stage 4 (GCSE) provisional results

Request for schools and colleges to send provisional results for Key Stage 4 to the local authority on Thursday 22nd August 2019.

2019 Key Stage 4 (GCSE) Results 

As in previous years, the Local Authority is asking schools and colleges to provide a headline summary of their provisional results when the results are received on Thursday 22nd August 2019. This is because the examination boards do not provide the Local Authority with these results until late September, and the elected Members of the county council along with the local Members of Parliament require a provisional overall summary of results before then.

On results day

Please complete – ‘2019 Key stage 4 Results Day collection pro-forma’ and return to the local authority by 11.30am on Thursday 22nd August 2019 via email.

The pro-forma can be found on the following czone page – 2019 KS4 Results  If you would like to fill this in electronically, the percentage numbers will automatically calculate once the pupils’ numbers have been entered. If you choose to print the pro-forma out, we require your percentage figures to be to one decimal place.

Results day contact at the school

Please could you provide a contact person for your school that will be available on KS4 (GCSE) results day? Please include an email address and telephone number (mobile preferred) so that we can make contact with you on results day if necessary.

2019 preliminary reports
