It has been lovely today to see many of our Post 16 students who came into school to collect their results. We have been able to celebrate some great individual achievements with them and are happy to share their excitement about moving on to the next stage in their lives.
As a year group they have had a difficult end to their studies but have shown true resilience and maturity, we are immensely proud of what they have achieved.
As a school we have been left feeling very upset by the process put in place by the DFE which has resulted in many of our students with lower grades than those supplied by the school. We are confident our students would have achieved the Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) that we supplied to the awarding bodies. We will do everything within our powers to support these students in ensuring the grades they receive reflect the hard work they have shown during their time with us.
Nationally it would appear that there has been significant adjustments to CAG grades and we are not alone in our disappointment. We will work closely with professional associations to put pressure on the DFE to ensure that awarded grades are fair and reflective of their true ability.
Year 13 have been a fantastic group of students, embodying our work hard, be kind motto. We feel confident that they have acquired the skills necessary to be successful in their chosen pathways and we want to wish them all the very best for their future.
Here are some lovely photos of our fabulous students:
