    GCSE Results 2021

    After a tumultuous 18 months that saw huge disruption to their lives and learning, our Fifth Formers are celebrating their fantastic set of GCSE results.

    After a tumultuous 18 months that saw huge disruption to their lives and learning, our Fifth Formers are celebrating their fantastic set of GCSE results. 

    They gathered this morning to receive their results which were based on demonstrated attainment and moderated by the exam boards.

    Of the results awarded by the boards to the 110 pupils, 26.7% were at grade 9, 52.1% at 9 or 8, and 73.5% at grade 9 to 7.

    Annie Johnson will be joining our Sixth Form to study A Levels in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and PRE (Philosophy, Religion and Ethics). On opening her envelope to see all grade 9s, she commented, “I'm shocked! I couldn't have hoped for better.” Looking towards sixth form life she said, “I've chosen subjects that will keep my options open as I'm not sure what I want to do afterward. I really enjoyed the induction days which confirmed that I've made the right choices. I'll be adding balance to my week by continuing to volunteer at a local nursery on Thursday afternoons as part of the Community Service Unit - and I'm really looking forward to wearing trousers as part of my uniform!”

    Alex Jenkins also scored highly. “I'm really pleased and surprised at my results”, he remarked. “The online teaching during lockdown worked well and I'm now looking forward to having the freedom to study the subjects that I'm most interested in. I'm taking Maths, Biology and Chemistry with a view to a medical career path. I'll be continuing with the RAF Section of the CCF on Thursday afternoons as I find it fun, relaxing and a complete contrast to academic lessons.”

    Jonathan Belbin, the Headmaster, commented, “We are immensely proud of the way that our pupils and teachers responded to the exceptional demands of the last 18 months. I would like to congratulate them not only for their results, but also for the perseverance, fortitude and commitment demonstrated along the way. I am grateful also for the key role played by our staff and parents in providing unwavering support to our children. I look forward to seeing the majority of this year group again next term when we will, it is hoped, return to a much more recognisable school life.”
