Student Information

All major updates will be sent directly to all students. This page will also be kept up to date with the latest information on college closure and how lessons are continuing. Updates will also be posted on our social media channels.

The vast majority of our students have now completed their study programmes and the College is now closed except for a few students who are gaining practical experience to aid their progression into employment.

We are currently planning to reopen to all students in September 2020, in accordance with the latest government guidelines.

If you need to contact us in the meantime, our Student Services Team are still available and working remotely, just call us on 01604 491131 or email student.services@moulton.ac.uk

If you are expecting to hear about your grading for your qualification please note that unless otherwise advised these will now be calculated based on factors such as class work, assessments, mock exam performance and the level of progress you have made during the course, in accordance with awarding body instructions.

As you can imagine this process needs to be completed consistently and fairly for all our students who were due to sit exams this summer. It is also essential that students and/or their parents do not try to influence this grading process. Therefore, in line with guidance from the Department for Education, we have instructed all of our tutors not to respond to any queries from students or parents about likely grading outcomes. We hope that you understand the necessity for this rule to be in place and enforced.

Due to the cancellation of English and maths examinations this summer results will be be awarded based on a range of factors as set out by the Department for Education. These factors include evidence collected over the year, including class work and assessments completed, mock exam performance and the level of progress you have made during the course.

The results for GCSEs will be issued on Thursday 20 August 2020. Functional Skills results will be available on Thursday 30 July 2020.

In line with the Awarding Body Pearson, Moulton College will be using published guidance in one of three ways to calculate your award for 2020.

1. Adaptation

For BTEC Higher Nationals the primary mitigation is to ‘Adapt’ assessment, where teaching and assessment can continue. The process for adaptation has already been published and can be found by clicking this link: https://qualifications.pearson...

2. Calculated

Grades (most HN qualifications) Centres will need to confirm unit grades for all completed units via their Assessment Board, as already required as part of the standard BTEC Higher National quality assurance process. In addition, Pearson will be ask for Centre Assessment Grades for incomplete units, based on the most likely grade that students who were due to complete their units between 20 March 2020 and 31 July 2020 would have achieved, as well as an indication of successful progression from HNC to HND.

3. Delay

(Qualifications with competence/professional licence) Where occupational competence is required or where qualifications function as a licence to practise and adaptation does not support the generation of enough reliable evidence to demonstrate competency, there may be no option but to delay until assessments can happen again as a Centre Assessment Grade would be unsuitable as it would not demonstrate occupational competency.
