COVID-19 and Updates


Covid-19 Enquiries

If any member of your household displays any of the following symptoms, they need to remain at home and arrange to have a Covid-19 test:

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

At this point, everyone else in the household will also need to isolate until the result of the test is known.

Please let us know as soon as possible by using the following details:

Self-Isolating student

Alert us to the fact that your child is self-isolating, but has not yet tested positive by contacting us through enquiries@carres.uk or on 01529 302181.

Your message will be picked up in school hours and teachers will be informed that work needs to be set remotely.

Open Day / Tours


Is your son looking for a place in Year 7 in September 2021? Unfortunately we are not able to offer tours or our usual Open Day so instead are pleased to be able to show you around our school via a virtual tour. We hope that this will give you a feel for the school, although it is a shame that we are not able to meet with you face to face.

If you have any queries please contact the school’s Admissions Officer, Mrs Julie Body, on 01529 302181

Examination Information for Parents and Students


Whilst this has been a difficult and anxious time for everyone as a result of the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic, hopefully the publication of GCSE, A Level and vocational grades in the summer will provide a measure of closure and an end to those worries.

Exam Results Information

Important Examinations Update


On Monday August 17 we have received the news that A Level and GCSE students across the UK are to have their results based on centre assessed grades rather than the exam board grades that were subject to Ofqual’s algorithm. Congratulations to those students for whom it means that grades have been restored to those we as a centre believed they were capable of achieving had they sat the summer exams. In the event that the exam board increased a student grade, the student will be able to retain whichever grade is the higher.

We realise that for some of students this may change their planning for the coming academic year. As a school we now await instructions from the DFE regarding the formalities of sharing those grades officially with you. We will be in touch with students via email as soon as we have further information
