GCSE results 12.08.2021
We are so proud of the excellent and incredibly well-deserved results our students here at St Andrew’s achieved this summer.
Ms Lowney, Headteacher, spoke on GCSE results day:
"Since starting in post in January this year, I have been consistently impressed by our students as they have risen to every challenge that that have been set. From adapting to remote learning, to embracing the rise of their GCSE target grades, to supporting the transition to becoming a co-educational school this September. Our students have shown resilience, grit and determination to achieve their very best, embodying our school motto ‘nihil sine labore’ – nothing without work.
The exceptional work from our staff team has continually supported our students throughout their GCSEs. Some particularly notable outcomes include one student achieving 4 grade 9s and 3 grade 8s, while another achieved 4 grade 9s and 2 8s. A large number of our student made outstanding progress throughout their 5 years with us at St Andrew’s, with one student achieving an average of 3.5 grades higher across his subjects that the government expected him to.
These results show the aspiration and ambition our community has maintained throughout a turbulent 18 months. It represents the extraordinary commitment and perseverance I have seen every day from both our students and staff which will most certainly inspire the our whole community to continue to aspire to reach their potential next year and beyond."
