Students Celebrate GCSE results

Year 11 students from St Benedict’s have today celebrated their GCSE results with parents and teachers, and friends.

Students received their results either via e-mail, or some came into school for them and also had interviews for Sixth Form.

Mrs Jackson, Headteacher at St Benedict’s 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.”

“I am extremely pleased with the results for our Year 11 group this year, and proud of how hard the students have all worked over the last two years.”

“We would like to wish each and every student all the best for their futures. We are looking forward to welcoming lots of them back to our Sixth Form in September.”

Mrs Hannan, the Head of Year 11 commented:

“I am immensely proud of our Year 11 students, they are a credit to themselves, their families and our school. The last two years have been difficult but they have risen to the challenge and I cannot praise them enough”
