Qualifications – summer 2024

Preparation and Revision


Your teachers already have lots of evidence about your performance in each subject – they keep tracking sheets where all your scores and marks to date are recorded.  We will spend time:

  • Identifying your strengths and areas for development on content already covered

  • Revising and ‘closing the gap’ on these areas


Your grades are in your hands – attendance and engagement are key:

To achieve this, you need to attend school every day and engage with your lessons and your teachers and try your very best with all work, assessments, homework and revision set.  Teachers will also provide revision materials, homework tasks and after school lessons.



The pupil report that was sent out last term, which can be found on Synergy, shows Working at Grades (WAGs) for each subject.  This provides you with an indication of the grade level a student is working at. 


Key dates:

  • Thursday 22nd August 2024 – GCSE Results Day


Review of Marking:

If you are unhappy with your grade on results day, you are able to request us to ask the Exam Board to check for errors and to ensure the process has been followed correctly. 


This is a post-results review of the original marking, not a re-mark of the paper, and is done to ensure that the mark scheme has been applied correctly. A marking error can occur because of:

• an administrative error;

• a failure to apply the mark scheme where a task has only a ‘right’ or

‘wrong’ answer;

• an unreasonable exercise of academic judgement.


The awarding body will train its reviewers to conduct reviews of marking

accurately and consistently. Reviewers will not re-mark the script. They will only

act to correct any errors identified in the original marking.



Lastly, we are also here to support you as you prepare for life after Lode Heath. Please don’t forget, we recommend that you make applications to several post-16 providers, so you have a range of offers from them to consider on results day. We have access to independent Information Advice and Guidance and can also provide support on progression routes and related issues.  You can contact Mr Davies on
