GCSE students at James Calvert Spence College have been praised by their head teacher, after overcoming significant challenges in the last year.

Here are some of the students as they collected their results.


Neil Rodgers, Executive Headteacher, said:

“After successfully overcoming the challenge of significant disruption through their two most important school years yet, our Year 11 students collected their well-earned GCSE and vocational results this morning.

“These young people showed tremendous stoicism, adaptability and resilience throughout key stage 4. And during the recent summer term, students had to maintain their optimum performance level for weeks while tackling multiple assessments across every subject.

“It is their hard work and perseverance through adversity, coupled with absolute determination from our staff team that our students would not be disadvantaged, which ensured students achieved the grades they thoroughly deserved. I am incredibly proud of them all.

“Many students will continue their studies with us by returning to our successful sixth form in September for what we hope will be a more ‘normal’ academic year.

“To those moving on to new challenges, we wish them all the best, safe in the knowledge that they are well prepared for whatever awaits them in the future.”
