Welcome to our School
Beacon Hill Community School is at the heart of the community in the historic town of Aspatria, situated on the edge of the Solway Plain. Our strength is our size – our small numbers ensure that we can deliver truly personalised learning, ensuring students develop the academic and life skills essential to be successful, confident and resilient young people, whatever their abilities.
Exam Results and Appeals
Our students have had a difficult and anxious time as a result of the disruption caused by the pandemic, but have faced these difficulties with fortutide and optimism, and have worked incredibly hard to achieve the grades that they have been awarded. The process of the submission of Centre Assessed Grades was carried out by their teachers with the upmost diligence and professionalism, and considered a wide range of evidence and followed our Centre Policy when submitting grades.
Our policy, which was checked and approved by JCQ, can be accessed here:
If students wish to appeal, guidance and appeals form can be accessed here:
Note on the appeals form, there are some boxes that need not be completed – for example the UCAS number which is not applicable to our students, and submission dates are per our guidance, not per the dates on the Appeals Form. Appeals Forms should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the date indicated in the Student Appeals Guidance.
