Our Year 13 Students have received their A-Level results today, some of them coming into school to collect and some receiving via e-mail.
There were a lot of happy faces and emotions as students found out their results, and made decisions on their futures.
Lots of students going away to universities and starting apprenticeships in September, we’d like to wish them all the best!
Mrs Jackson, Headteacher said:
“We are proud to serve our children, their families and the communities they come from. Over the last two years due to the Covid 19 pandemic this, for sustained periods has been a trying time, for both students and staff. The achievements of the students are all the more special given the challenges they faced while studying over the last two years. We congratulate them all on the manner in which they have coped in these quite extraordinary times.”
“The majority of students will be pleased with their results and will have the keys to go onto to their anticipated destinations in September. Their results reflect their hard work, their dedication and the support they received from their teachers and families.”
“The adaptations to the exam series this year has allowed for the students to take their exams in a manner as close to a normal year as possible. Whilst these changes were not always ideal, the students should be rightly proud of their grades and should in no way think they are diminished by the small number of changes they were afforded.”
“It is only right that we recognise that the variability in how students and schools were affected by Covid19 means that any meaningful comparison between schools is simply inappropriate. It is for this reason that we would caution against such comparisons and instead encourage everyone to focus on the success of our students and celebrate their achievements as individuals with their own story to tell.”
“We congratulate all the young people on their achievements today and wish them all every success in the future.”
“We are delighted with our students. They have produced an excellent set of results under challenging circumstances.”
“We are proud of all their achievements including the four students who are studying at University of Oxford and Imperial College London.”
“We also have students going to study a wide variety of subjects at university from architecture to Zoology. Another group are off to do Level 3 apprenticeships in the local area. We are extremely proud of them all.”
