Students and teachers were delighted that grades were upheld by exam boards leading to students securing places at 6th Form, university or enabling them to commence an apprenticeship or employment.
This has been a very challenging year for all students and the significant disruption to education has been felt most keenly by those who should have taken their final exams this summer. Our school has a strong track record of academic excellence and this year, despite the difficulties faced, is no different. Our students have achieved incredibly well across the full range of GCSE, BTEC, A-Level and Level 3 qualifications.
We are continually amazed by the resilience and perseverance shown by our students in very challenging circumstances. We also recognise the anxiety caused by the events of the past year and thank our parents and carers for their continued support.
Our staff have worked incredibly hard to ensure that students have been cared for and have continued to receive the best education possible. We have strived to ensure that students have been given every chance to pursue their chosen next steps and staff will remain available to offer support and guidance where needed. Teachers have worked hard to make sure that the judgements made were quality-assured and accurately represented our student’s achievements.
We are proud that our students have achieved the grades required to move onto their next steps. Exams do not test: compassion, creativity, happiness, love, generosity, confidence, kindness, faith, bravery and many more things that are far more important in life. Grades alone do not define a person and our students are worth more and are greater than simply grades. They have been strong, resilient and valued members of our community and now the world beyond our school will benefit from all our students have to offer.
We wish them well and are confident that they are on course to succeed in their chosen fields.
