Congratulations to our Year 11 students as they receive their GCSE results today. The results are a testament to their hard work and perseverance throughout their school career. This year group has been an exceptional one – mature, determined and considerate and we are delighted to be able to celebrate their well-deserved success.
After a week of extraordinary developments in relation to this year’s A Level and GCSE results, we finally saw a decision from the government to allow school’s centre-assessed grades to be the basis of this summer’s results. Exam Boards have additionally generated calculated grades for every student using an algorithm that has proved immensely controversial. The final outcome is that our Year 11 (and Year 13 students who received results last week) have been awarded the highest of either the CAG or calculated grade in every subject.
As ever, in our cohort of 300 Year 11 students, there are some exceptional results. We would particularly like to highlight the superb achievements of these students:
Amrit Sahu who gained 12 grade 9s.
Harriet Twigger-Ross who gained 11 grade 9s.
Connor Acres, James Robinson, Martin Rumler and Elizabeth Friend-Smith who all gained 10 grade 9s.
Luca Elliott and Emily Sims who both gained 8 grade 9s and 4 grade 8s.
It is also important to mention 3 students who made exceptional progress throughout their journey at George Abbot – Giulia Lentini, Emma Coxhead and Millie Bolton.
Despite the difficulties presented by lockdown and a delay to leavers’ celebrations, this year group should be rightly proud of their significant successes, both as individuals and collectively. We look forward to welcoming most of the year group back to the George Abbot Sixth Form and to those moving on to pastures new, we wish them luck, happiness and success in their onward journeys.
