Mrs Rachael Thomas, Headteacher, expressed her absolute delight with the GCSE results which have been published today and wishes to congratulate the Year 11 students upon their achievements.
Whilst an unprecedented number of students have met or surpassed their target grades, over a quarter of the pupils have secured at least five A* / A passes. The positive achievements of students of all abilities are also worthy of celebration. We have maintained the school’s longstanding tradition of every student in the year group achieving a recognised qualification.
Given the significant challenges presented by the pandemic over recent years, the Headteacher recognised the sustained hard work that had been invested by all students in achieving their results, which will enable them to proceed to sixth form, college, or work – based training opportunities. On behalf of the students, Mrs Thomas paid tribute to the professionalism and dedication shown by teaching and support staff, both during Years 10 and 11 and earlier during their learning journeys.7
She also paid tribute to the parents and representatives of the wider community, including the governing body, for their valued contributions and support. Notable successes to mention are Rory Cremona 10 A*’s and 2 A’s, Eddy Turner 10 A*’s and 1 B, Skye Bramley 9 A*’s and 3 A’s, Annis Henton 7 A*’s and 5 A’s and Holly Reason 7 A*’s and 5 A’s.
