    • GCSE Results Day 2020

      Published 21/08/20

      I am particularly pleased and relieved that we were able to share GCSE results with our Year 11 students in an atmosphere of optimism and calm, after the tension and widespread unhappiness that surrounded the distribution of A Level grades.

      The decision by the government that each candidate should receive the higher of their Centre Assessed Grade and the grade calculated by the algorithm has meant that our results at GCSE are strong and enable the vast majority of our Year 11 students to progress on to the courses of their choice. A third of our GCSE grades were at grade 7 or above and three quarters were ‘good passes’ at grade 5 or above. My congratulations to all our students on the hard work throughout their time at the school that merited these superb results.

      We are delighted that so many of them will be continuing at Bishop Ramsey following A Levels. We are also very pleased to welcome a good number who are joining Bishop Ramsey Sixth Form from other local schools.

    • A Level Results Day 2020

      Published 13/08/20

      First and foremost, I would like to pay tribute to our Year 13 students, who have contributed so much to the school during their time with us. I am delighted that so many of them have achieved the A Level grades they needed to progress on to the universities of their choice.

      I would also like to thank their teachers who undertook the process of completing our Centre Assessed Grades with such rigour and honesty.

      In the light of this, I am particularly confused and angry that such a high proportion of our Centre Assessed Grades have been moderated downwards. The class of 2020 are able students and their published results overall do not reflect their ability. This is a shame for a cohort of students who have already had a poor ending to their school education.’
