Students at Dane Court received some excellent GCSE results this morning.
The students have worked exceptionally hard over the last five years and coped very well with the difficult circumstances since March.
Following the cancellation of exams as a result of Covid-19, this year grades have been awarded according to the centre-assessed grades submitted to the exam boards by schools. All schools have followed a rigorous and robust process to ensure that the grades submitted were fair and accurate. Students can feel rightly proud of their achievements.
The vast majority of Dane Court students are now looking forward to starting their International Baccalaureate Sixth Form studies in September – either the Diploma or Careers-related Programme. The IB provides a rounded and challenging curriculum that prepares students for study at top universities or high-quality employment-based learning.
Head of School, Martin Jones said: “We would all like to congratulate our students on their achievements. The grades received today mean that our students can move on to their Sixth Form studies and the next exciting stage of their education. We are very proud of this cohort of students. They are dedicated, principled and talented young people. They have worked hard throughout the last five years and coped exceptionally well with the last few months and weeks of uncertainty. It’s been a privilege to work with this year group and we are all looking forward to seeing them back in the classroom at the start of September. On behalf of the students, I’d like to thank the teachers and support staff at Dane Court. I know that the students greatly value their teachers’ expertise and dedication.”
