Exam Results 2020
It has certainly been a challenging time for our GCSE students but after some anxious weeks and months, there were lots of smiles and happy tears on Results Day.
Headteacher, Jon Hayes, said:
As with the A level results last week this year’s GCSE results have been very different from those in previous years. Today we are looking beyond the uncertainty and controversy that has surrounded this exam season and focussing on the students who have collected their results. The Queen Katherine School is immensely proud of our Year 11 cohort. They may have been denied the opportunity to sit their exams but they worked towards them in good faith and today is a celebration of that hard work and determination.
As always, our students have made fantastic progress from their starting points. For some that means being awarded grades 8 and 9 for all of their subjects, for others it means securing their place in further education. We are delighted to be welcoming a significant number of our Year 11 students into our Sixth Form to continue their education with us at QKS.
Head of Year, Dawn Audley said:
2020 has been a challenging year and all our staff recognise how incredibly hard our students worked in preparation for their exams. We are very pleased with our results overall and are excited that so many of our students are choosing to return to our sixth form in September. For those moving on to pastures new, we wish you well and thank you for your positive contributions as students of QKS.
