Our students have received their GCSE and vocational examination results today after significantly disrupted years of study. This year is seen as a transitional year with results around halfway between 2019 (the last year examinations took place) and 2021 (when assessment was carried out directly by schools and colleges). As such, comparisons with previous outcomes nationally and locally lack any validity. Despite the many challenges, students have performed exceptionally well and returned an excellent set of results enabling them to reach next step destinations.
Acting Head of Upper School Richard Marshall commented “I am extremely proud of this year group who have had the most challenging of times through their 5 years of secondary education and in particular, in the lead up to their final examinations. Much of their learning of early course material was completed during national lockdowns, yet they have demonstrated the commitment and resilience required to achieve some fantastic results. Consequently, I know that many of them will now be able to secure their next steps and I wish them all the best for the future.”
Headteacher Jochen Tree added, “On behalf of all the staff at The Bromfords School, I would like to congratulate each and every one of our Year 11 cohort; the students worked hard and are well deserving of these results. I would also like to thank all the parents and careers for their ongoing support, more than ever you have been instrumental in supporting your young people through a very challenging time. We look forward to working with all those returning in Year 12, and equally I wish all those who are moving to college courses, apprenticeships and other institutions the best of luck in your future endeavours.”
