Congratulations to our 2021 Year 11 cohort on their fantastic set of GCSE results.
Students have shown true resilience, and unbelievable determination, in the way that they have handled their revision, assessments and Mock Exams throughout the pandemic. The class of 2021 have worked incredibly hard to make sure that they are personally ready for the next stage of their education. We are very proud of them all, and the results reflect their hard work and dedication, and that of their families and highly skilled teachers and other staff, who have worked with true commitment to ensure the highest professional standards, and care, were maintained during such turbulent times.
It has been an amazing morning seeing our students’ smiling faces looking at the results that they have worked so hard for, celebrating their individual successes. It has been a challenging year for students, staff and parents, yet no matter what changes have happened along the way, everyone has stepped up with determination and resilience resulting in what we have seen today.
As with previous years, there were some exceptional results from individual students, two of whom achieved grade 9s and 8s in all their subjects. They were not alone in reaching these high grades, with 19% of students achieving at least one grade 9, 42% of students achieving at least one grade 8 or above, and 11% of students achieving at least five grade 8s and above.
Overall, 78% of students achieved a standard pass (grade 4 or above) in both English and Maths, whilst 66% of students achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in both English and Maths.
This is an excellent set of results, that demonstrates both ‘talent, knowledge and success’ and our continued journey of improvement together. We are incredibly proud of our students and are overjoyed that they are in a strong position to move into the next stage of their education.
Many of our students have also successfully balanced their academic studies with wide-ranging participation in the arts and sport, including competing at national level, this is an absolute credit to them.
Congratulations to our 2021 cohort. We wish them all the best for the future.
