GCSE Pupils Rewarded for Their Efforts
Thursday 20 August 2020
With 60.1% grades 9-7, Queenswood pupils can be immensely proud of their GCSE results. Following months of Covid-19 related disruption to studies, cancellation of public examinations and anxiety surrounding the Government’s grading U-turns, the waiting is over and their endeavours pre-lockdown have been recognised.
Among the strong results are some outstanding individual achievements, including one student who achieved 11 grade 9s and an A (the top grade) in the prestigious Free Standing Mathematical Qualification, and a further three pupils who achieved mainly grades 9 and 8. In total, 22 out of the 68 candidates achieved at least eight grades 9-7, which equate to A*/A in the previous grading system.
Commenting on the results, Principal, Mrs Jo Cameron said: “I am delighted that the hard work of our pupils and staff has been vindicated with these results. The girls will now be able to transition to their Sixth Form studies with the confidence that these results will bring them. I wish them every success as they embrace the next stage of their education.”
