Dear Parents and Carers,

I wanted to say hello and I hope this finds you well.

My name is Kat and I am the Exams Officer at Percy Hedley School. This role is a new role to me and I am in it for just about one year coming up. I have worked in floristry and customer facing roles previously and I love photography. My latest role was in finance where accuracy and organisation skills were key – which also applies to this role! I have worked very hard to find my feet and gain knowledge about this important role.

Our Students are working very hard and are committed to succeed and achieve their goals and I am here to support them on their exams pathway.

I am communicating with teachers, who submit entries with me, I will then enter students for the qualifications proposed and ensure their details are correct and applications are made to their individual needs. I oversee the arrival of the exams papers, the exams day, where exams are sat under JCQ regulations and the postage of the exams papers to the exams board for moderation after the exam.

Exam Administration is an ever-ongoing process, and no day is the same – being organised and prepared is vital for this role.

The Cycle of Exams:



Exams Day

Results Day

Post Results Services

The exams results day for this academic year 2023-24 will be Thursday 22nd August 2024.

I will send out letters mid-June with information on how to contact me on this day and post result services. The letter will include a results consent form that should be signed by the candidate to enable me to pass on results to parents/ carers/ guardians over the phone if a candidate wishes not to speak to me. All results will also be posted out on results day. Certificates will be provided by the awarding bodies normally in the autumn for the start of the new academic year.

Wishing the best of luck to every student!

If you have any questions, I am happy to help – please email kat.ryan@percyhedley.org.uk

Yours sincerely,

Kat Ryan
