Congratulations to all – A Level and GCSE results

Following the government announcement this week on A level and GSCE grading, Diocesan Director of Education Nigel Frith said,

“In keeping with the values of the Church of England we applaud the government’s decision to prioritise people over systems.
We are very proud of all our 6th form students following what was a successful results day last Thursday for so many of them.  It has been a most unusual year and a very challenging set of circumstances in which to receive exam results. We want to congratulate everyone on how well they have coped over the last few days with the continuing debate over the final allocation of results.

We are pleased that both our A level and GCSE pupils will receive the highest results awarded to them.  However, we are concerned for those hoping to attend university in the autumn and the uncertainty that now lies around place allocation.  We hold each everyone one them in prayer and pray for best outcome for them all.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students and staff at our church secondary academies for all the hard work they have put in over the last two years for these results, and particularly for their continued effort throughout the lockdown period.

“After the confusion of the last few days we are delighted to see our students receiving their GCSEs this morning. We are pleased that the hard work of the last two years and the fantastic support they have received from the staff in our church academies is recognised with the teacher assessment grades being awarded today.  At the end of a very challenging and most unusual few months we wish them all the best in the next stage of their education and in their future employment. Congratulations to all!”
