A Level Results 2020

Tuesday, 18 August 2020

I am writing to tell you about our A Level results this year.  As you know, the government has decided that students will receive their centre assessed grades, which means that every student gets the grades that they deserve.  I am delighted for this year’s A Level cohort, who were a delightful, hard-working and particularly able set of students.

We were pleased to see so many students on Results’ Day in person, with social distancing in place. This meant that we could offer our students advice and guidance and support about their futures.  We are delighted that most of our students have now gained places on good courses at universities around the country, as you can see from our Sixth Form tweets

Over 20% of students are going on to Russell Group universities, including one student going to Oxford University, and others going on to study Medicine and Dentistry.  We have a number of students who have shown tremendous resilience in getting over personal setbacks and barriers to get onto an excellent university course.  Two students with EHCPs are also off to university in September.  

We are working closely with those students whose initial grades did not get the university place that they had hoped for.  We have contacted their universities and the Sixth Form Team are available to support them. 

Finally, we are also pleased that centre assessed grades will be used for GCSE results this year. We hope that many of our Year 11 students will want to stay on in our Sixth Form and our staff will be available to provide all the necessary support on GCSE Results’ Day this Thursday.
