We were delighted to see happy faces from our fabulous Year 11s receiving their GCSE results this morning. They have had a really tough last 6 months and we admire their resilience and courage. They deserve to be congratulated not only for their results but for their resilience and forbearance under the most unusual of circumstances. They are a terrific year group and we are really proud of all of their accomplishments both academic and otherwise.
Grades across the country this year have clearly been subject to more scrutiny and contention than ever and our thoughts are with all pupils and their families, many of whom are still having to come to terms with the changes to external moderation. We sincerely regret that our pupils were not able to have the satisfaction of proving themselves in formal examinations.
These pupils, more than any, deserved to have their hard work and abilities recognised fairly after a Term of disruption and disappointment that was not of their making. We congratulate them all.
