2021 GCSE Results
There were joyous smiles this morning on our Year 11 St Mary’s Class of 2021, who received a superb set of GCSE results, as they came with their parents to collect their results from school.
There is so much to be celebrated today; we are especially proud of all the achievements of the girls in this pandemic year. Following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, with a rigorous internal moderation and review the grades are then approved and awarded by the examination boards
The girls worked incredibly hard and with great determination, adapting to online learning and to different modes of assessment. throughout their GCSE course and as a result they will be able to embark on their Sixth Form curriculum with great confidence.
In 2021 at GCSE 37.3% were at grades 9-8 – the very highest grade, 79.1 % at grades 9-6 and we had our highest ever percentage of grade 9s at 18.4%.
Mrs Adams, Headmistress said: “We could not be more proud of all the work and achievements of our Year 11 student class of 2021. These are all the more impressive when we consider the challenges these girls have faced during the pandemic with periods of remote learning and isolation. They have adapted incredibly well to everything that was asked of them after the cancellation of GCSE examinations. The grades they have been awarded today are fully deserved; they will enable our students to embark on the Sixth Form curriculum of their choice and will provide a firm foundation for their future study. We cannot wait to see what they will achieve in the Sixth Form, as after this year, they are sure to be ready to overcome any challenge that may come their way.
Special thanks must go to their teachers and parents who have continued to support and encourage throughout. There is so much to celebrate for our whole school community today.”
2021 A Level Results
We are pleased to report some truly outstanding achievements by St Mary’s A level students class of 2021 in their A levels and other qualifications this summer.
Almost all of those who applied to university this year have achieved their choice of course and are ready to start the next chapter in their education.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, rigorous internal moderation and then approved and awarded by the exam boards following their own quality assurance process.
We will not be reporting headline figures this year as there cannot be a true comparison on previous years; each grade achieved by the girls reflects a huge amount of effort, hard work and dedication ; many of these long hours of work were carried out in isolation and in lockdown, conditions which we could never have imagined for their Sixth Form experience.
We will be celebrating all the girls’ achievements reflected in these A level grades as we wish them well for their future courses and careers.
In 2021 results at A level were 40%A*, 71% A*- A, 98% A*-B. They were our best ever results.
Mrs Adams, Headmistress, said: “I am immensely proud of all the work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult time they have had since the start of the pandemic with periods of remote learning, isolation and covid restrictions.
These girls have shown outstanding fortitude, strength of character and determination to surmount these obstacles and have come through with an astonishing set of grades, which are fitting reward for the work, effort and dedication they have employed to reach their goals. Not only have they excelled academically, but they have shown themselves to be a wonderful cohort of compassionate young women who embody everything we stand for and are superb role models for our younger girls.
Their teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure our students’ success and have remained steadfast amidst the administrative demands and responsibility of the TAGs process.. We are so pleased that these girls will be embarking on a wide range of exciting university courses and destinations. Having triumphed so gracefully in such adversity, I have no doubt these young women will continue to blaze a trail in their chosen careers. I am so very pleased for them and their families today.”
