GCSE Results 2020

As the 2020 summer examination season was cancelled, this year’s Year 11 cohort have been awarded grades by the exam boards, based on information supplied by the school. Following a change in government policy, students have been awarded either their Centre Assessed Grade or the grade calculated by the exam board (whichever was higher).

None of the usual benchmark data or headline figures which lend themselves to comparisons between this year and other years, or between schools, have any validity this year.  Schools in this area have therefore come to an agreement that it would serve no purpose to release such figures into the public domain.

Sitting exams would have been stressful enough for these young people, but losing the chance to prove what they can achieve has been even more so. Thankfully, students at The Helena Romanes School and Sixth Form Centre are now able to celebrate, as their GCSE and Level 2 vocational grades will allow them to pursue the education, apprenticeship or employment routes of their choice.

Headteacher, Daniel Gee stated “I am delighted that our students have been able to celebrate their achievements today, following what has been an unprecedented period of uncertainty and concern. Students’ grades this year reflect their commitment to learning, their talents and the quality of work they have produced over the last three years. The staff at HRS are incredibly proud of our students’ achievements. We wish them well in the future, and look forward to welcoming many of them back into our Sixth Form.”

Noteworthy individual successes included:

  • Evie Barber achieved 7 Grade 9’s, 4 Grade 8’s and 1 Grade 7
  • Maddie Lees achieved 5 Grade 9’s and 7 Grade 8’s
  • Samuel Hartley achieved 5 Grade 9’s, 4 Grade 8’s and 3 Grade 7’s
  • Oliver Brinkley achieved 6 Grade 9’s, 3 Grade 8’s and 3 Grade 7’s
  • Grace Headley achieved 5 Grade 9’s, 3 Grade 8’s and 4 Grade 7’s

A Level Results 2020

As the 2020 summer exam season was cancelled, this year’s Year 13 cohort have been awarded grades by the exam boards, based on information supplied by the school. The exam boards have applied their own calculations, taking account of performance in previous years, to generate each individual student’s final grades.  None of the usual benchmark data or headline figures which lend themselves to comparisons between this year and other years, or between schools, have any validity this year.  Schools in this area have therefore come to an agreement that it would serve no purpose to release such figures into the public domain.

Sitting exams would have been stressful enough for these young people, but losing the chance to prove what they can achieve has been even more so. Thankfully, students at The Helena Romanes School and Sixth Form Centre are now able to celebrate, as their A Level and BTEC grades will allow them to pursue the education, apprenticeship or employment routes of their choice.

Head of Sixth Form, Donna Wright said: “The results are a reflection of the dedication and commitment demonstrated by our students.  This, combined with the support of staff and parents, has produced some excellent results.  I am extremely proud of our students and wish them all the best for the future.”

Headteacher, Daniel Gee added “I am delighted that the hard work of our students has been rewarded today. It has been an incredibly challenging and uncertain time for this cohort of students and I am pleased that they can now focus on moving forward, either in higher education or employment. On behalf of all staff at HRS, we wish them well for the future.”
