    GCSE Results

    Posted On: 12/08/21

    We are delighted to be celebrating the success of our GCSE students today as they have come in to school to collect their results. The process for awarding grades has been different this year, but the hard work and dedication to their academic studies this cohort have demonstrated, in the face of the unprecedented disruption, has been inspirational. Students rose to the challenge of having to provide substantial evidence of their current performance in the summer term and they all have much to be proud of as they move on to their next stage of education. For many, that will be continuing to study in our Sixth Form and we look forward to welcoming them back in September.

    It is always hard to pick out individuals from a very successful cohort but special mention must go to Martha H and Archie M. Their achievements of receiving 10 top grade 9’s is quite exceptional. They have demonstrated exceptional resilience and determination in continuing to set the very highest standards for themselves and their peer group. Our top two students in terms of the progress they have made in the last five years are Heidi B and Daniel A. They both achieved, on average 2 grades higher in their GCSE’s than would ordinarily be expected and we are very proud of their achievements.

    Principal, Duncan Roberts said, “I would like to congratulate every single one of our Year 11 students. They have overcome unique and specific challenges that no previous GCSE student has had to face. I know they would also like me to acknowledge the hard work and sacrifice of their teachers, parents, friends and family who have supported them through the grading process and now can share in their achievements. The class of 2021 have demonstrated a real love for their learning, maintaining effort and engagement even when having to work from home. I am confident the skills they have developed will ensure they go on to be happy and successful in their futures and look forward to continuing that journey with many as they embark on their A-level study with us in September”.
