Good News!

As university offers keep rolling in for our students, we are busy collating all the results and helping them navigate their way in making the best choices. We wanted to share this good news, as well as a statement from our Principal, Tim Naylor:

“We were thrilled to see all our A Level and GCSE students achieve the grades they so richly deserved this week, despite the adverse conditions imposed by the pandemic. It clearly shows that all young people, with differing strengths and weaknesses, are capable of achieving so much more with high levels of personal support from their teachers, the inner motivation that comes from having a clear goal, and the experience of being valued as individuals. We saw re-sit students make up to a 5 grade improvement on their previous grades, others achieving straight A* grades in four A Levels and almost everyone achieving more than they had believed possible. But grades are probably less important in the long run than the strengths of character that our students have developed in the face of a very challenging situation, rising from a felt minus to a felt plus. Surely the development of these deeply personal qualities is what truly effective education is all about.”

‘Thank you very much for all the knowledge you shared with us this year. I really appreciate what I have learned outside of the curriculum too.’ – Year 13 Biology student

Statement from our Principal, Tim Naylor:

“We are thrilled to see the exceptional results our students have achieved in a challenging and disrupted year. They faced innumerable challenges since the lockdown in March, yet have overcome them to produce impressive results. We are grateful for their hard work, for their parents’ support during this time, and for our educational leaders’ expertise and dedicated pastoral care to keep the students motivated as we moved temporarily to online lessons.

“Few of our students’ grades were adjusted and our robust approach to continuity of teaching and assessment over the lockdown period meant we were in a strong position. With 87% of our students progressing to their first-choice university and 68% of our students gaining places at Russell Group universities, we couldn’t be more proud of their achievements.

“With varied university places achieved – such as Medicine at Sheffield, Veterinary Medicine at Nottingham, History of Art Edinburgh, Pharmacy at Cardiff and Economics at Nottingham – our students are well on their way to promising careers in the future. We wish them every success and continue to offer support to all who are unsure of the next steps to take with the help of our expert guidance and flexible options.”
