GCSE Results Press Release 20th August 2020

Congratulations to all our Year 11 students in what has been a challenging and unexpected year. We are delighted with the resilience, fortitude and perseverance that they have displayed during what have been the most challenging few months.

Although our students did not sit public examinations this summer, the results that they have received are, we believe, an accurate reflection of what they deserved. These results are the outcome of a detailed and rigorous process which has taken into account their mock examinations in January and their work in school since the start of their GCSE courses. Overall, these results reflect the position of the school which is one of continuous improvement on our way to becoming the number-one choice for our local community, with a significant increase in grades awarded at 7 and above, as well as substantial increases in the number of students achieving strong and standard passes in both English and maths.

There are many individual success stories: Claudia achieved 9 grade 9s, and one 8, Madeline achieved five grade 9s, three 8s and two 7s, Ella achieved two grade 9s, two 8s, one 7 and four 6s and Afrina achieved one grade 9, four 8s and four 7s. Artiola, James and Emily also passed 10 GCSEs, all at grades 8 and 7.

Four students joined the school as refugees from the civil war in Syria. Between them, they have achieved 33 GCSE passes, Mahmoud and Mahmoud both achieving a grade 7 and 6 respectively in Arabic. Mahmoud achieved grade 5s in English and maths and a double 4 in science. Nour and Muawia passed 9 and 6 GCSEs respectively. We are so proud of these achievements from students who spoke little to no English when they arrived in the UK.

We are extremely proud of all of our Year 11 students. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow throughout their school career and, although this was not the way we expected Year 11 to end, we are delighted that we are able to share such an excellent set of results with them today. We would also like to thank all our staff for their diligence in ensuring that students were awarded grades that truly reflected their abilities and potential, and the support that they continued to provide throughout the lockdown period.

Finally, we would like to share this message with all our Year 11s. We are looking forward to seeing many of you as you start your 6th form courses in September, but whatever you are doing – “Oh the places you’ll go!” Prospect #Classof2020
