On Thursday 20th August our Year 11 students received their GCSE results. We are delighted with their efforts and exceptional resilience during these extraordinary times. We want to congratulation all students on their results – it has been a delight to see so many students rewarded for their hard work and commitment to their studies. We remain exceptionally proud of our Class of 2020 Leavers who have handled the disruption of the last few months with maturity and resilience and who have continued to drive their learning and wider skills development through the Academy’s learning programme. We look forward to welcoming many of students into All Saints Sixth Form College in September. We would like to wish all our students’ good luck for the future.
Quoting exam grade statistics can be flawed during the most ‘normal’ of academic years but especially so this year given the Government’s U-turn announcement on the 17th August that students’ final grades would be the higher of their Centre Assessed Grades and the algorithm’s calculated grades. We are therefore going to focus on the achievements of individual: their personal learning journey; obstacles overcome and the exciting pathways that are now open to these students.
Our Y11 students have contributed a rich variety of academic, sporting and creative talents to our community. Examination results reflect only a part of the wonderful young people who will now venture into the next stages of their lives.
The results this year are a reflection of a committed and hard-working Academy family. Students have worked exceptionally hard to achieve their goals and it has been a pleasure to celebrate with them. I would like to thank all staff for going above and beyond to ensure our students have the best possible chances of success. I am remarkably proud of each and every student.
Jeniffer Sing: Head of School.
Looking ahead, we look forward welcoming other year groups back to the Academy, on a staggered introduction, from Wednesday 2nd September. Despite changes necessitated by Government guidance, we remain excited about delivering our broad and balanced academic and wider curriculum, including further investment in our extra-curricular clubs and activities programme so important in developing the core values, passions and personalities of our students.
Well done! Staff, governors and trustees are incredibly proud of you all.
