Students Celebrate Outstanding Results

Students celebrated outstanding GCSE achievements when they received their results this morning.

Despite facing significant challenges over the past two years, students showed resilience and determination to succeed, and were today rewarded for all of their hard work.

Due to Covid-19, students did not sit formal GCSE examinations this year. Their grades were decided within subject departments based on their prior performance in mock examinations and class assessments - particularly in their final few months of Year 11. 

Grades were subjected to a rigorous programme of standardisation and moderation and are a clear reflection of the hard work and dedication of our Year 11 students, as well as their teachers.

There was a mixture of relief and joy as parents and students opened results together.

Some students received particularly outstanding results. Ria Nolan achieved Grade 9 in every subject. Thomas Landells, Naomi Hannon and Tamar Pink were amongst a group of 5 students who achieved all Grades 9 and 8 - the equivalent of A* and above in the previous grading system.

Headteacher Stuart McGhee said, "Congratulations to all of the Year 11 pupils. They have worked incredibly hard alongside their teachers to overcome all the challenges of the last 18 months. The results they have received today are fully deserved and a testament to their hard work and determination."

Our Year 11 students are now moving on to a wide range of destinations. Most will be taking A-Levels at Carmel College, Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form or Richmond School. Some students have obtained Apprenticeships in careers ranging from Vehicle Mechanics, Health and Beauty, Joinery and Business Studies. Other students are specialising in vocations such as Agriculture or Sports.

Wherever the future takes them, we hope them all possible future success and happiness.
