In what has been a difficult and turbulent year, students at AGGS once more excelled in their GCSE qualifications. Throughout the lockdown, our students continued to show resilience and strength, and it is wonderful to be able to celebrate with students and staff, an outstanding set of GCSE results.
42% of all grades awarded were at the highest, 9 grade and 89% of all results were graded at 7 or above. A phenomenal 122 students achieved grade 7 or above in all of their subjects and 16 students achieved grade 9 in all of their GCSE subjects.
We are delighted that the hard work of our students over the last five years has been rewarded by such fantastic GCSE results. These achievements also reflect the dedication of our teachers and the quality of the support provided by our staff. We are extremely proud of each and every one of our students and would like to congratulate them on their achievements.
Principal, Ms Gill, said: â€śAlthough some students may feel cheated of the opportunity to show what they were capable of in their GCSE exams, I want them to reflect that their hard work has been recognised, both by their teachers and by the government, in the awarding of centre assessed grades. In an extraordinary year, it is important for our students to know that they have done well and we are very proud of them.â€ť
A Levels 2020
We are thrilled and delighted to be able to celebrate with our students and staff another outstanding set of A level results. After initial disappointment in the Ofqual treatment of our centre-assessed grades, we are pleased to report that our studentsâ€™ successes saw 94% of grades awarded at A*-B and 98% grades at A*-C.
With 101 students achieving A* or A grades in all of their subjects and 31 students achieving straight A* grades, there is certainly a great deal to celebrate.
In a difficult and turbulent year, these results are testament to the hard work and continued efforts of both our students and teaching staff. We are proud of the many accomplishments of our outgoing Year 13 students and these results are a fitting reward for the determination and resilience they have shown over the past few months.
Principal, Ms Gill, said: â€śCongratulations to our A level class of 2020. As a result of the global pandemic, students were not able to take their examinations. I am delighted, however, that their teachersâ€™ assessments have now been upheld and our studentsâ€™ hard work has been justly rewarded. We wish all our students the very best wishes for their next steps.â€ť
