GCSE results 2021

Last year, after lockdown when our then Y10s came back into school in their tightly managed bubbles so classes could be 2m distanced, we were all emotional but nervous.

Students coped brilliantly. Not a day or week has gone by when this year group have not given 100%, and throughout the relentless assessment process, they continued their positive attitude. Today this historic year group deserve all the medals. We were thrilled to see many of our students return to school today to receive their GCSE results.

It is also with great pleasure we celebrate Sienna Wildman’s Fashion course in Brighton, Tommy Brown’s Apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce and Jack Hinshlewood’s enrolment at Brighton and Hove Albion Football club. 

There are so many achievements in amongst every single result. Walking into school each day, I am reminded of the creative talent this year group have with the Art and Photography work pride of place in our main entrance. Today’s results combine high achievement and excellent progress for our pupils that will allow them to pursue the next stages of their educational journey.

We were lucky enough to have so many of our \year 11s attend our sixth form summer school in the summer term. After this successful transition event, we are now looking forward to welcoming so many of them to our Sixth Form in September where we will be able to continue to support them. It will be a record-breaking year for recruitment into our Sixth Firm and we could not be more delighted.

Amongst the successes of today, our Student Presidents achieved a string of top Grades. Daisy Barclay will be staying at Sixth Form to study and Luke Watson will be pursuing his passion for sport at Churcher’s College Sixth Form.

This year group has been an absolute pleasure to work with. We wish all of them the best of luck for the future and hope they all thoroughly enjoy continuing their education whether it be in sixth form, college, apprenticeships or in the world of work. This cohort of students have shown greater tenacity, resilience and persistence than any other in recent decades. All should feel proud of their achievements. We are proud of you, and huge thanks to the staff, parents and carers who supported them and us.
