Exceptional academic performance from GCSE students

Hockerill students are, once again, celebrating outstanding GCSE results. The Year 11 cohort performed exceptionally well and, in many cases, surpassed expectations. Members of staff were on site this morning to congratulate the students and to thank them and their families for their hard work and support. It is clear that the whole Hockerill community is very proud of our GCSE students.

Some outstanding results came from Toyin Odusan who passed all ten of her GCSEs at Grade 9, Olivia Boutell who achieved nine grade 9s and one grade 8, and Freya Tischowitz achieving nine grade 9s and two grade 8s. In addition, congratulations go to Anouk Allen-Mills, James Baird, Jemima Cromie, Emma Davis, Archie Fraser, Nilesh Gurumurthi, Ned Haslam, Lewis James, Jack Lyall, Scarlet Possnett, Annabel Readman, Olivia Waring and Lucy Womack who all gained at least eight grade 8s and 9s.

Head of Year 11, Faye Whiteley commented; “We are delighted with all our students and their outstanding results. Their contribution to the life of the College over the last five years has been exemplary. They have studied hard but have also shown independence and initiative with involvement in the wider community from charity work, sporting successes, Duke of Edinburgh Award, CCF, performance and so much more!

For the Hockerill community, this is a very exciting day and marks the beginning of a new school year. We look forward to welcoming back our students to the Sixth form where they will be joined by new students from local, national and international schools, to study the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Our thanks go to our committed staff, our parents and, most of all, to our students for all of their hard work and commitment.

Contact details for Examinations Officer: Mrs Jane Dewhurst (dewhurstj@hockerill.com)

How do we find out about Sixth Form Places?

Confirmation of places on the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme will be distributed with the examination results. 

What can I do if results are substantially different from what is anticipated?

It must be remembered that examinations can only measure performance on the day, and that candidates can do better or worse than anticipated for a variety of reasons. 

It is possible to request an enquiry about results (EAR) whereby the awarding body arranges for the examination script to be reviewed.  Details of the procedures and fees will be enclosed with the students examination results or emailed to students if results are not being personally collected, the process should be started as soon as possible after consultation with the Head of Department concerned.  The deadline for submission of an EAR application is normally mid-September for summer exams.

Members of staff will be available in College between 22 August 2019 and the start of the Michaelmas term to offer support and guidance. 

Please note that awarding bodies do not provide component marks and grade boundary information for individual candidates.

External Applicants

Information for External Candidates post GCSE Results 22 August 2019

Once you have received your results, please come into Hockerill after 10am on Thursday 22nd August 2019.  Please go directly to main Reception, where a member of staff will be available to discuss your application and confirm if you have met the entry requirements.

New External Applicants 

If you have exceeded expectations in your GCSEs and are considering taking the IB Diploma Programme then we may have some late places based on your subject choices.  Contact us after 1200hrs to discuss your options further. 

When do current students receive certificates?

Students and parents will be invited to attend a celebration evening towards the end on November 2019 (date TBC), when examination certificates will be presented.

Arrangements to collect certificates from College should be made by students who are unable to attend Presentation Evening.

Students who require certificates to be posted to their home addresses may purchase a ‘postal package’ from Reception, consisting of a certificate envelope and postage by recorded delivery. 

Certificates are only retained at the College for one year after issue; students must subsequently apply to each awarding body for a Certifying Statement of  Results, for which proof of identity will be required, for example a birth certificate.   A fee is payable to each awarding body for this service (currently in the region of £45.00 per certificate).

Students should ensure that their certificates are stored in a safe place.  They will be required in the future for further and higher education and employment applications.
