Welcome to the examinations section of the school website. The examinations team are responsible for the organisation of all of the Public Examinations run by the school, as well as the lower school mock examinations, which we call PPEs (Preliminary Public Examinations). We liaise with the Head of Departments to enter students for their examinations, run the examinations sessions and manage the process of distributing final grades. In order to do this work, we also liaise with the examination boards for UK examinations, as well as the International Baccalaureate Organisation.

You will see on the left-hand side a list of downloadable forms and information sheets that should cover all possible situations. However, if you cannot find what you need or you have a more general enquiry then contact the examinations team through the email address examinations@aesessex.co.uk and put examinations in the subject line.

Performance Tables


Issuing Results


Results days are as follows:


  1. IB Results: 5th July
  2. A Level Results: 17th August*
  3. GCSE Results: 24th August*

*This year results will be given out in school for both A Levels and GCSE’s.


As ever, the school will do all it can to support our students move to their preferred destination as they progress to the next stage – most Year 11s will progress to AES International Sixth Form; others will move on to college, apprenticeships, work or training. Most students leaving the Upper Sixth will be progressing to their first-choice universities all around the world. Others will be progressing to Higher Level apprenticeship, work and exciting gap year with work or travel abroad. We know for the majority, this will be a time of great celebration, high aspirations and excitement about the pathway ahead. All students were advised to have a “Plan B” and we know most took this seriously. A small minority will be disappointed and anxious about the future and we want to reassure you that specialist teams will be in school on all three results days to provide careers advice, guidance information to support alternative routes forward.
