A level and GCSE Results 2020
Following the, arguably long overdue, government announcement on Monday 17 August, we knew that the results achieved by the Year 11 pupils in the GCSEs would be deserved following the extensive work by the staff, having pieced together the Centre Assessed Grades from all of the work completed by the pupils over the past 2-3 years.
And that hard work, from pupils and teachers, has certainly paid off with the achievement of the best grades in the school’s history, with 50% of all results graded 9-7/A*-A, 76% of results graded 9-6/A*-B, and 100% graded 9-4/A*-C. Particular mention must go to Chantelle for her achievement of five 9s and four 8s, Eloise (four 9s and six 8s), Clara (four 9s and two 8s), Bea (two 9s and three 8s) and Isabella (one 9, seven 8s and an A*).
As with the A-Levels, in which the students achieved 41% A*-A (recently upgraded following the government announcement), 63% A*-B, 100% A*-E, and 100% A*-C in the EPQ, including 46% A*-A, we are incredibly proud of the achievements of all of our pupils over the past two years and, in particular, over the past few months as they have had to deal with the emotional challenge of not sitting their exams and the seemingly constant uncertainty about the results themselves.
We would like to congratulate each and every one of our Year 11 students, and I wish them well as they move into the Sixth Form.
We would also like to congratulate the 2020 Year 13 Leavers, and I wish them well as they move on to the next stage of their education. We look forward to welcoming them back in December for a well-deserved celebration.
“This school is so special, in so many ways, and our daughter’s results reflect not only her incredible effort and commitment, but also the dedication, care and encouragement of each and every one of her teachers. We could not have asked for better results and she is so delighted!” Parent Y13 student 2020
