SHOREHAM ACADEMY STUDENTS RECEIVE GCSE RESULTS
/ Categories: News
The majority of students at Shoreham Academy are set to take up their places in the school's Sixth Form after receiving their GCSE grades earlier today.
As a result of COVID-19, students and staff across the country have found themselves in an unprecedented situation this year with the cancellation of GCSE examinations. Students have therefore been awarded grades based on what their teachers predicted they would achieve, except in cases where the model created by Ofqual has awarded a higher grade.
The majority of Shoreham Academy’s Year 11s are now preparing to join the school's Sixth Form in September, where they will begin their A Level courses. They will be joined by record numbers of external applicants. The Sixth Form celebrated students achieving their top-choice university courses last week, including at Durham University, the University of Warwick and the University of Bristol.
Jim Coupe, Principal of Shoreham Academy, said:
“Congratulations to all our Year 11s on their GCSE results. Whilst our students weren't able to sit their exams this summer, we believe that the grades they were awarded are an accurate reflection of what they would have received and are testament to the hard work they've put into their studies over the past five years. We look forward to welcoming the majority of them back to our Sixth Form in September to continue their studies."
Victoria Penney, Vice Principal for Standards at the academy, said:
“We are very proud of all our Year 11s receiving their results today. Despite the challenges of recent months, they have been a pleasure to teach and have dedicated themselves to their studies and to our academy throughout their time with us.”
