Statement by the Headmaster on A Level Results

'We have grave concerns about the processes applied by the examination boards and the outcomes that are revealing an unfair and illogical system. We expect the government to work speedily to resolve things so students can be awarded the grades that reflect their performance throughout the course accurately.

Our primary focus is on reassuring and supporting our students now whilst we wait for the response from the awarding bodies and the government in due course.

Given the manifest unfairness of the processes used we will not be issuing the normal news update focusing on exam successes: while we are delighted with the results that some of our students have been awarded, a much more important issue is ensuring that all our students are treated fairly, particularly when they worked hard all the way up to the normal exam date as a result of the College's digital learning provision.'
