GCSE Results August 2020

King Ethel­bert School are cel­e­brat­ing excel­lent GCSE results. The stu­dents have done really well under incred­i­bly chal­leng­ing cir­cum­stances. Many of the stu­dents are stay­ing on at King Ethel­bert School in the 6th form to study the bril­liant IBCP.

This year has seen so much con­tro­versy and so many changes of direc­tion from the gov­ern­ment about how grades are awarded, which has been very frus­trat­ing and unset­tling for the stu­dents affected. Teach­ers and lead­ers dili­gently went through an incred­i­bly rig­or­ous and robust process in pro­duc­ing and mod­er­at­ing the CAGs that schools were asked for, to ensure they were fair and accu­rate. They based these grades on a whole range of assess­ment infor­ma­tion and detailed knowl­edge of their stu­dents. It is absolutely right that these grades are not moved down by the government’s sta­tis­ti­cal model and the stu­dents get the grades they rightly deserve.

Vicky Willis, Head of School said: ‘Today is about cel­e­brat­ing with our fab­u­lous stu­dents. We are enor­mously proud of them. Their excel­lent results are tes­ta­ment to their hard work, deter­mi­na­tion, per­se­ver­ance and resilience over the last 5 years and more. King Ethel­bert School is a fan­tas­tic team, and encour­ag­ing and believ­ing in the stu­dents are their bril­liant teach­ers and staff who have worked tire­lessly with incred­i­ble dili­gence and pro­fes­sional integrity in the face of the ongo­ing chal­lenges thrown at them.’
