Complaints and appeals

If you are unhappy with the Grades you have received and wish to make an appeal, please see the guide from Ofqual:
Student Guide to appeals, malpractice and maladministration complaints, Summer 2020

Next Steps

If your child is looking to join Exeter College as their next step, please find this information Exeter College GCSE Results Day Advice for Students 2020
from the Exeter College team, which will hopefully reassure them and clarify next steps. The Exeter College GCSE results helpline will be open from 8.30am on Thursday 20th August should students have any questions about their chosen course once they have received their results. The number to ring will be: 01392 400555
Mrs Jan Taylor, Isca Academy’s Mentor and Transition Co-ordinator, can accompany students to their college enrolment if another adult/family member is not available. If your child requires this support, they should contact Mrs Taylor at jtaylor@iscaexeter.co.uk to arrange this as soon as they receive enrolment details from their post-16 provider in the course of August. As the enrolment process can take up to three hours, there is obviously a limit to the number of students which Mrs Taylor can support on any given day so please contact her as soon as you can if you require her assistance.

Future First

We hope that our students will continue to contribute to our school community, even when they have moved on to pastures new, and would like to invite them to think about joining our Isca Academy Alumni. They can do so simply by signing up to the Future First network https://networks.futurefirst.org.uk/signup/isca
Through Future First, students can stay in touch with the school as they go through the next stages of their life.  Not only does this provide an opportunity to remain connected with their former teachers and peers, it also allows them to inspire and help the next generation of students by sharing their insights into secondary school and beyond.  It is also a nice addition to any CV!  Students can be involved as much or as little as they would like, so do encourage them to sign up and stay part of the extended Isca Academy community.
We remain on hand to answer any questions you or your children may have, so please do not hesitate to contact the team, either directly using their email addresses (available on the school website) or by contacting the main school reception.
