Helen Tucker, Head of Stone King's Independent Schools Team, was interviewed by The Times for an article on A-level and GCSE grading results and possible appeals from pupils. The article was also used by a number of other media outlets, including the Glasgow Times and the Belfast Telegraph.
Stone King has prepared guidance for schools (i.e. exam centres) that answer some common questions and set out the firm’s suggested approach to handling exam appeals and associated complaints, including:
- On what basis can a school or student appeal?
- What are the appeal time limits?
- What procedure should schools have in place?
- When should schools communicate this procedure to students and parents?
- What are the likely arguments from students and parents?
- What should schools do in relation to subject access requests?
- Could schools face a legal claim regarding results?
