Accessing mental health support early can make a critical difference for young people - and can save money and resources for services later down the line. It’s time the Government make early mental health support a national priority. Young people and parents deserve better.

Hollie McNish had a good point over on Instagram. That if you or your kids are stressed by the idea of 'lockdown' and 'isolation' reframe the concept as 'hibernation' which makes it sound more fun and squirrelish.

Exam Results

GCSE and A Level exams did not take place in summer 2020 and we therefore have no exam outcomes to share here. Students received grades that were estimated by the school and no school performance data will be published this year. Given the prior data of the 2020 cohort, we had anticipated that our results would have been very similar to those in 2019 and the estimated grades reflected that.  

A Level Results 2019

Great A level results this year, we are delighted again with the results that our students have achieved. 

Cumulative Results 2019 Results 2018 Results 2017 Results 2016 National
A* 14% 13% 9% 15% 8%
A+ 42% 43% 37% 40% 26%
B+ 71% 78% 68% 75% 49%
C+ 89% 95% 93% 92% 75%
D+ 98% 99% 99%   99%
E+ 100% 100% 100% 98% 98%

This year has been the first full cycle of the reformed A Levels. All staff have worked extremely hard to ensure that all students were well prepared for the new styles of assessment, with very limited resources provided by exam boards. We have continued to exceed the national benchmarks and we are very proud of the results our students have achieved. We pride ourselves on having a varied and full curriculum, and we have experienced great success across a range of subject areas, we have also seen impressive results with our Extended Project Results, with the average grade attained being an 'A'.

The majority of students have taken up their first place offers at university and we are so proud of every one of them.  Two students have taken up places at Oxbridge, and two students have places for medicine. The varied and exciting pathways and subjects our students have taken is definitely a cause for celebration.

Waldegrave School are thrilled with the achievements of their Year 11 students. Despite the more challenging demands of the new GCSE’s students have again come up trumps at all ability levels. 91% of all results are at grade 4 and above, 52% at grade 7 and above. 88% of students achieved grades 4 and above in both English and maths, a requirement for level 3 courses. RS is a stand-out subject as 198 students sat the exam and 51 achieved grade 9, the highest grade possible.
