Results days letter summer 2021 – July 2021

The arrangements for results days summer 2021 are significantly different this year. Due to the recent increase in local Covid-19 cases, we will not be inviting students into school to collect their results. To ensure the safety of our staff, students and guests, we have taken the decision to issue all results electronically this summer. 

 On the results days specified below, results will be sent by email directly to the student’s school email address:

Results Day Qualification type
10/08/2021 GCE (AS, A Levels) and other Level 3 qualifications
12/08/2021 GCSE and other Level 1/2 qualifications

JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) regulations state that centres cannot release results to students until after 8:30am. Fullbrook will issue results after this time as quickly as possible, however, please note that it may take some time for all students to receive their results by email.  Any students who have not received their results by 12:00 midday on their results day should notify us by email to  All results will also be posted (on results days) to the home address that Fullbrook hold. 

Any Year 11 and Year 13 students, who do not currently have access to their school email account, need to email at the earliest opportunity for support in logging in to their school email.
