Year 11 End of Year Information

The end of the GCSE exams will come as a relief to many students’ (and parents!) who will have no doubt found the associated rigors and expectations very challenging. The good news is that following their last exam there is an extended rest period to enjoy before the students’ start the next chapter of their education or training. Whatever that decision may be, Consett Academy would like to wish the students the very best of luck and to extend our best wishes for the future.

However, the most important date in the entire year is still to come and that is ‘Results Day’.  All of the trials and tribulations over the last year rest on this one occasion, but please take solace in the fact that if the hard work has been applied, this moment will be hugely pleasurable.

This year results can be collected from the Academy between 9.30am & 12.00pm on Thursday 24th August and students’ should access the building via the main reception. If results are not collected, they will be posted out at the earliest opportunity.

Following the collection of GCSE results, students will be able to enroll onto their A Level courses with a member of our Sixth Form team from 9.45am onward., There will also be a member of staff available from North Durham Academy to enroll students who are interested in courses offered at their Academy as well as staff from New College Durham who will be available to offer advice and guidance.

Following the final ‘full cohort’ GCSE exam on June 16th, we are offering students who have completed all of their exams the opportunity to leave straight after this exam.  If you wish your son/daughter to remain on site until the end of the day, please get in touch. 

For those who still have exams to complete, please see the outline for the workshops being offered to support them in preparation for these exams.  These workshops are compulsory for students who are sitting exams in these subjects and we would hope you would support us in the expectation that your son/daughter must attend these exam workshops.
