Year 11 students at The Knights Templar School collected their GCSE results today and they should be delighted with their success.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
The school is delighted that the vast majority of our students have managed to get to the next stage of their education, but particular mention must go to those students who have exceeded our expectations in terms of their grades:
|Student Name||Number of grades above potential grades across all subjects|
In addition to these students, special mention must go to some of the top performers in the year group:
|Student name||Number of grade 9’s||Number of grade 8’s or Distinction* grades|
Headteacher Tim Litchfield said:
“My warmest congratulations extend to all of our students whose dedication and commitment to their studies has been rewarded. This has been such a difficult year, having to adapt to so many things, but they have all shown remarkable resilience and determination. I am sure all students and parents will join with me in thanking our exceptional staff for their continued dedication to ensuring each student has the help, support and instruction needed to help them do as well as they possibly can. As we can see there have been some exceptional individual performances but I am so proud of all our students. They are a credit to themselves and their parents and carers and are a testament to the remarkable teaching and pastoral support we provide here at Knights Templar. Congratulations to all our students and I wish them every success for the future.”
Kari Lardeaux, Head of Year 11, added:
“I am delighted for all of our Year 11 students today as they collect their GCSE results and I am very proud of how well they have done. The last two years have been unprecedented and I have been constantly impressed by the stoicism and dedication they have shown navigating the pandemic. Their willingness to work hard and adapt to the changing learning and exams circumstances whilst also dealing with the very real challenges posed by COVID 19 outside of school, is a testament to them and something which future employers will recognise and acknowledge. They are a wonderful group of young people and I wish each and every one of them every success and the very best for their future.”
