GCSE Results Day20th August 2020
Well done to the amazing Year 11 class of 2020
It is with the greatest joy and relief that we are celebrating, today, the results of the Year 11 class of 2020. After having their exams cancelled in March and then a week of worry that they would not receive the grades they deserve, students have been awarded an excellent set of GCSE and Level 2 outcomes.
During the summer term, staff were asked to use all the detailed assessment knowledge they have of their students to give a final Centre Assessment Grade. Thankfully students have now been given these assessments which reflect 12 years of hard work throughout primary and secondary school.
There are some truly outstanding performances from our young people and we are incredibly proud of their achievements, particularly over the months running up to school closure.
As a school we talked anecdotally about our hopes and aspirations for this fantastic group of students who were preparing for their exams with courage and determination. As a year group they have been both focused and driven but also warm and generous in their attitudes towards their peers and the staff.
It is with the greatest pleasure that we have been able to see this group of students achieve their true potential and to be able to help them with the next stage of their life. We look forward to working with a large section of the cohort in our Sixth Form.
We would like to mention a few key students for their notable success.
- Our highest performing female student is Alex Featherstone with an amazing set of results which include 7 grade 9’s, 1 Distinction* and a grade 8. Well done Alex.
- The highest performing male student is McKenzie Strath with 4 grade 9’s, 2 grade 8’s and a grade 7 and 6. Brilliant work McKenzie.
- Other higher performers include Lucy Eggbeer (4 grade 9’s, 3 grade 8’s, 1 grade 7 and a Merit), Tyler Kearney (3 grade 9’s, 3 grade 8’s, 2 grade 7’s and a level 2 pass) and James Fraser (5 grade 8’s, 3 grade 7’s and a grade 5). Well done to all of these students.
- Emelie Dockree and Jazmin Witt are noted for their outstanding progress from Key 2 (Year 6) to the end of Key Stage 4 (Year 11). These two exceptional students have made the most progress during the 5-year journey of secondary school and we cannot be prouder of their academic success.
Finally, I would like to thank our wonderful parents and carers who have done such an amazing job ensuring that their children are able to leave school with the life chances needed to be successful. I would also like to thank the dedicated, hard working and caring team of staff who have worked tirelessly to support the young people.
Well done to all our students.
