A Level Results 2020

Year 13 pupils throughout the UK have been through so much this year. Their results day, like the end of their academic year – and school career – was highly unusual. This day is about coming together and celebrating the hard work and efforts of our students and a key moment in any school leaver’s life and we were so disappointed not to be able to offer our leavers the customary celebrations and rites of passage.

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our world upside down and, for this cohort, has created a great deal of angst. However, following much confusion and changes in decision making, our year 13s have left school with excellent results and now start to take their next steps to university and beyond. Their efforts, focus and sheer determination have paid off and we are sure that this period will have helped the students to grow, emotionally as well as academically. We have been inspired by the way in which they have managed the past few months, kept going, engaging with our Bridging the Gap programme for both moving on to university and careers through academic and skills based preparation, stand alone extension lectures and demonstrations based on degree dissertations and researching future career paths.

I’m so happy with my results. It’s such a great feeling, all of your work having paid off! Now I can go to my first choice university and start a new chapter of my life there.

– Sophia, year 13

I was so happy and relieved when I opened my results. Thank you to all my teachers who went out of their way during lockdown to help us all. I am incredibly grateful. I’m excited for the start of my next chapter studying Physiotherapy at King’s College London!

– Sophie, year 13

Every single one of our year 13 students deserves praise for getting through this year so admirably, with focus, maturity, patience and resilience. I congratulate them wholeheartedly on their results and all their many, many achievements. I know that they all have bright futures ahead of them.
