Holy Cross has a very strong and deserved reputation for its support and care for our students. It is an element of our provision that we value very highly, and is reflected both in the investment in time and staffing that we devote to it, and the emphasis that we place on teaching and learning within the classroom. Ofsted clearly recognised this in saying:
“the College places the needs of the learner at the heart of everything it does.”
We aim to provide a full and rounded experience for you all. We know that the two years you spend with us is a relatively short time during which we need to help prepare you for university and/or the world of work. Providing a challenging academic environment and opportunities through enrichment activities to develop your talents, skills and interests is crucial to ensuring your experience at Holy Cross is a positive one and supports you in your future careers. Our support and care for you is a fundamental element of what we represent as a college.
Ofsted recognise our success in achieving this, reflecting on student’s experience as follows:
We aim to provide this supportive environment for all of our students whatever your previous experience, particularly for you that have found education difficult in the past. We hope it is an experience all our past and current students would recognise and which you would aim to play a full part in achieving.
Exam results and timetables can be accessed on the College Intranet Moodle, please use the link below to login to Moodle.
Current A Level students need to log into their intranet area to view their results and print out a Statement of Results. You will also have access to the Post Results Services, application Form, fees and deadlines along with an explanation of grade boundaries.
Past students who have taken resits can view their results by logging into the college intranet area, where access is also available to the Post Results Services, application form and fees/deadlines. A printed copy of a Statement of Results will also be posted to the address on file.
Results information is only given to the student they belong to. No information will be given over the telephone.
A Statement of Results can be printed on request for posting home or for collection. If collection is by a third party then we will need a letter of authority from the student naming the representative The letter along with ID should be presented at time of collection.
Certificates issued by the awarding bodies are kept on file in the Examinations Department until a student has completed their A Level studies. Certificates are issued by the awarding bodies in the November following the summer examinations and are collated and filed in preparation of the college ‘Presentation Evening’ in December to celebrate student achievements. Any student who does not attend the Presentation Evening will receive their certificates by post to the address on file, by the second class Recorded Delivery service.
If any student requires their certificates prior to the Presentation Evening they can be collected from the Examinations Department but must be signed for. A representative may collect them on behalf of a student on production of a letter of authority from the student, naming the representative and the relationship with the representative (eg mother/father etc). E-mail authorisation from a student sent to the Examinations Department is acceptable. See Contact information below.
Any certificates returned by the postal service will be refiled and available for collection for up to 5 years after which time they will be confidentially destroyed.
