Autumn Term 2020/21
Very likely to begin on Tuesday 1 September August 2020** (although please note that if OFQUAL/JCQ/DFE again instigate a 'draw forward' of AS/A2/GCSE exams and results' release dates in England summer 2020 by one week from their normal 'historic positioning', then Autumn Term 2020 may alternatively start on Tuesday 25 August 2020). The College will continue to lobby OFQUAL/DFE/JCQ against this change. A final decision re Summer 2020 exam dates and results release dates, by OFQUAL/JCQ/DfE, would be expected by Spring 2019 at the latest.
*August Bank Holiday in 2019 is Monday 26 August.
