In our school definitely not, the head was asking parents the next morning.
Slightly tangentially to this, does anyone know if headteachers can find out where a child is in the rankings if a child is a B? i noted the info on the results email putting off any parents from trying.. Seems an odd year with fewer As and lots of Bs this year.
In our school also, definitely not. I emailed our head with my daughter's results since she is also a family friend, so she knew about her, but not about the others till they came into school the next day.
They will not divulge the rankings of the Bs. They have always been clear on this. In the old days, when you used to get a letter in January saying qualifying score, borderzone or no, they didn't tell you the rankings then either, and some years they would say 'more qualifying scores than places available' but still not tell you where you actually were. This system is better for the As but obviously not for the Bs.
We don't really have the data to tell if this is an odd year or not, because we only have last year to compare it to. I think this year's B's are in a better position than last year's - at least, the odds are better.
