GCSE Results 2020

Congratulations to our 2020 leavers whose outstanding GCSE results stand testament to their ability, hard work and progress over the last few years.

As you know, GCSE results were awarded in this exceptional year on Centre Assessed Grades. The careful and comprehensive process undertaken by the school, rigorously following the directives, has ensured that decisions were fair, considered and supported by evidence. We can therefore be confident that the resulting grades are very well-deserved.

Headteacher Jenny Maraspin said:

"This has been an extraordinary year, in particular for our Year 11 students who saw their GCSE exams cancelled. I am immensely proud of them all and am delighted that their hard work is recognised with the publication of their results today. Some truly exceptional individual results have been achieved and overall we have seen students demonstrate excellent academic progress during their time at the school. It's been a pleasure teaching and guiding them over these past five years and we wish them every success for their continued education as they head off to sixth form colleges and other opportunities."

There were many outstanding academic performances, but a particular mention must go to Beth Starmer, who achieved an incredible set of results, with 9 grade 9s, a grade 8 and a 7, to Megan Johnson, who achieved 8 grade 8s and 9s and to Herbie Angel, who achieved 6 grade 8s and 9s.

Congratulations again to all our 2020 leavers, and good luck for your next adventure - you will be missed.
