Our year 11 leavers returned to school today to collect their GCSE results. From 9:30am students arrived and were handed the envelopes that contained the all-important grades that will secure each of them their place on the next stage of their educational journey.
Although, due to COVID-19 disruptions and, along with other schools in our area, we will ot be publishing overall achievement statistics this year, there were still lots of stories of hard work and excellent results amongst the year group.
Head teacher Mr Aaron Reid said, “Once again our students have done fantastically well in extremely challenging circumstances. This year group have had to deal with home-learning and lock down restrictions for a huge part of their GCSE programme and nothing should distract from the work they have put in, not just during the pandemic, but over their whole school career. Their summer exams build on learning during key stage 3 and this, of course, is an extension of the primary years’ experience. I am hugely proud that our Year 11 leavers have persisted with their learning to build a solid foundation for the next stage of their lives. What they have experienced will have built their character and personalities which are arguably even more critical to their future success than exam results.”
Keenan Pickford achieved a complete set of grade 9s and was delighted to share with us his elation and plans for the future. There were 12 students who achieved four or more grade 8s and 9s across their subjects and Alisha Hossein and Elouise Bragg were amongst others who secured all grade 7 or above. Alex Mockeridge and Edie Hill counted three grade 9s each amongst their grades. These notable results stand alongside lots of other outstandng examples of students who have made fantastic progress to achieve five or more grade 4s and above.
We are very proud of our students and staff for the tremendous efforts they have made throughout their time at Haygrove and wish everyone all the very best for the future.
