Our Year 11 Pupils have collected their GCSE results. We’re celebrating their many achievements, including adapting to studying through years of disruption.
169 pupils sat their GCSE’s this summer and they’ve done so well to get to this point says headteacher Steven Henneberry. As he explained:
Their last normal experience of a school year was their first year in secondary school. They’ve been tested with lock-downs, remote learning and covid restrictions, plus the impact of the pandemic in general. It was so lovely that many mums, dads, grandparents and siblings came with them to collect their results. And that many pupils then headed over to the Sixth Form Centre for coffee, croissants and enrolment.
There were also six of our boarders opening their results around the world. We recognise their amazing achievements of studying in a second language alongside living away from home, developing independence and resilience,” adds Mr Henneberry.
Among those with a strong set of academic results is Iona Finney who got a brace of 9s and an 8.
Evie O’Hara and Alice Grieves set high standards for themselves and worked really hard. Their results mean they’re returning for Sixth Form, and say they are looking forward to a more independent approach to learning. Alice says she will continue with drama, alongside psychology and biology, which she hopes will pave the way for a possible career in healthcare, including midwifery. Evie will study geography, biology and psychology and has her sights set on studying at university in Edinburgh.
William Gosling achieved 6s and 8s with high scores in maths, physics, and BTECs in enterprise and creative media production.
Angus Aldersen-Beeching, had his mum and sister with him when he got his results and celebrated seven strong passes.
Whilst Jake Warburton and Sam Wilson opened their results with friends. And Sarah Harris’s results meant that she was heading for sixth form enrolment with her mum Claire.
We are incredibly proud of our students. Their impressive results reflect individuals’ excellent commitment and determination to do well. With the support of their parents, carers and our staff they’ve also developed greater resilience to excel in their studies. We look forward to welcoming many of them back into Sixth Form and wish all our pupils every success and happiness as they begin the next stage in their education, training or employment.
We’re also here helping those who need to rethink their options. Either from doing better than expected or being disappointed by their results.
says Mr Henneberry.
