Results Day, Thursday 12th August 2021
Below are details about our plans for your Results Day on Thursday 12th August 2021.
Receiving your GCSE results
We will email you your GCSE results via your school email account on Thursday 12th August after 9am. Please ensure you know your username and password in advance of this date. If you need clarification of this information, please contact Mrs Luke, our exams officer on email@example.com as soon as possible in order to avoid any frustration on the day itself.
As a school, we submitted our Centre-Assessed Grades to the exam boards in early June. We have provided evidence to the exam boards following their sample request, so any difference between our Centre-Assessed Grades and final grades will be as a consequence of this processes and, therefore, are out of our control.

Questions about GCSE results
If you have any questions upon receipt of the results, we request that you book an appointment rather than calling or emailing the school as all our staff will be involved in post-result meetings, which is likely to delay a response reaching you. Please note that conversations with staff will take place by appointment only. We also request that you refrain from contacting individual teachers. They are not in a position to discuss final grades, awarded following Ofqual’s moderation process.
Appointments can be booked using the GroupCall parent booking system using the following link: https://www.parents-booking.co.uk/isca
Appointments will be available during the following times:
Thursday 12th August 10.00am to 3.00pm
Friday 13th August 9.00am to 12.00pm
The booking system will remain open until 10.00am on 13th August.
Meetings will be held in the school’s main atrium. On entering and exiting the building, parents and students will be asked to clean their hands with the hand sanitiser provided. Safe distancing between staff and parents/students will be respected throughout.
Please note that it will not be possible for students or parents to come into school just to collect printouts of the results.
In the event that you think an error has been made in deciding your grade, details of the appeals process can be found on our website. Remember your grade can go down as well as up on appeal. The deadline for submitting your appeal is Friday 17th September 2021.

GCSE Centre Assessed Grades 2021
March 18th 2021 – Please read the letter from Miss Mitchell confirming Isca Academy’s plans for assessing grades this summer for our students in Years 10 and 11.
We will determine and send the grades to the exam boards by the 18th June 2021.
GCSE and vocational results will be published for students on the 12th August 2021.
NCS – Summer 2021
Year 11 students may wish to consider the NCS programme this summer. Exeter have a non-residential programme starting on the 21st or 28th June. You can learn more by viewing the video beloe or by visiting the NCS website; https://wearencs.com/
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.
