GCSE Results 2021

Congratulations to our 2021 leavers who achieved another set of fabulous results.

Our students do us proud every year, and 2021 was no exception. The pandemic meant that it was, without doubt, an extraordinary two years of GCSE studies for our 2021 leavers, with disruptions galore. The results were again awarded on Centre Assessed Grades given the cancellation of the final GCSE examinations.

Each grade in every subject was carefully considered and supported by evidence. As you would expect, the process was extremely rigorous and therefore we can be confident that the resulting grades are fair and very well-deserved.

Headteacher Jenny Maraspin said:

"As everyone knows, the pandemic has seen these past 18 months affect children and schools in a way no-one would ever have predicted. The way in which our GCSE students have coped with the disruptions and the additional pressures on them is nothing short of astonishing.

We are immensely proud of them and are pleased that their hard-work and dedication to their studies is recognised with a great set of results being awarded today. Yet again, we have students who have achieved excellent results and who have shown superb academic progress throughout their time at The Swanage School. My sincere congratulations to them all and, on behalf of all staff, I wish everyone many more adventures and every success in moving to sixth forms, colleges and other exciting opportunities."

You will be missed!

No exam data was published in 2020 or 2021 due to the unique circumstances of the GCSEs in those years (as a result of the cancellation of exams due to the pandemic). A very limited amount of data is available for 2021, and full data for 2019 is available on the DfE website:
