Results 2021

 

Sixth Formers and Y11s received their A Level and GCSE results this week.  Grades were teacher assessed after formal exams were cancelled and our students have worked hard to demonstrate their ability. 

Ms Tongue, Headteacher, says: “The last few months have been very challenging for our students, their families and teachers. Our students have shown great resilience and determination throughout their studies. The amount of work that went into preparing the grades, in order that each and every one of our students received the grade they deserve, cannot be underestimated.  I would like to thank everyone for ensuring that this has been another successful year.”


 

A Level Results

A Level results have continued along the strong trajectory of past performances. 55% of grades were awarded an A*/A and 84% were A*-B.  This year, in addition to the traditional choices, we have seen a wide variety of subjects being studied at university.  Mr Bannister, Head of Sixth Form remarked, “our students have excelled themselves and we are thrilled to share in their celebrations. We are particularly pleased with the wide range of courses and careers they are about to undertake and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours.”

 

Some of the diverse range of courses and destinations include:

GCSE Results

GCSE results were also strong with 95% achieving grades 4-9,  58% achieving grades 7-9. 

Ms Tongue says: “We are thrilled that so many of our Y11s will be enrolling into the Sixth Form, we are also pleased for those who are embarking on new ventures.  Through our Careers and Guidance program we work hard to realise the potential in every student and help them make the decision that is right for them, including options outside of traditional post 16 pathways.”

Some of the alternative destinations include the Brit School, Arts Ed, The London Screen Academy and QPR football academy.  

Special congratulations to the students who achieved grade 9 in all their subjects Lily C-F, Madeleine C, Sophie H and Lila T. 

Ms Tongue continues: “We would like to congratulate all our students on their hard work, determination and perseverance.  For those leaving, you will be missed -  please keep in touch and let us know how you are getting on. For those returning we are excited to continue your journey with you.”
