Students’ hard work paid off as they collect GCSE results

Students’ hard work paid off as they collect GCSE results

Our HGS Year 11 cohort are ready to take the next exciting steps in their academic journey.

Our students close the book on their secondary education today as they receive GCSE results And while we thought 2019 had a major disruption to GCSEs; with fewer ‘bite-sized’ questions, significant changes to grading, and coursework disappearing from most subjects. The year 2020 brought with it a whole new wave of unprecedented challenges.

This year students have had to navigate the uncertainty of a worldwide lockdown, home-schooling with remote and digital learning, and the much media-discussed confusion over Ofqual’s u-turn on grades, all amid a global pandemic.

How every student took it in their stride along with their unwavering focus and determination make them all a credit to Holcombe Grammar School.

Some of our individual high performing students were George Tuley, Matthew Jupp and Braden Cox and Nathan Johnston. Who all excelled in their GCSEs and have secured their place in HGS sixth form next year.

Lee Preston, Headteacher at Holcombe Grammar School, said:

“We are so pleased for all of our students, it’s clear to see that all of their hard work has really paid off! And we are thrilled for them as they take their next exciting steps in their education – congratulations! I would also like to pay tribute to the staff and families who have been so supportive along the way – you have been unwavering in your commitment, so thank you.”
