GCSE Results 2020


25 August 2020


May I begin by congratulating all our Year 11 students for their results as published today.  We are delighted to report that once more our students achieved exceptional results both in terms of their progress since primary school and their individual academic attainment, which will lead to an increase in admissions to our already-thriving Sixth Form (as evidenced by our exceptional results last week).


In this challenging year, we celebrate far more than just the successes of each student.  These results have been achieved through five years’ hard-work with continual improvement day-to-day, week-to-week and year-on-year.  Our Year 11 students found their normal learning routines severely disrupted during the nationwide lockdown.  Despite this we have had great numbers of young people working on their subjects and preparing for their future studies, determined to make a success of these difficult circumstances.


Our school motto is “Work with Love”, and never has this been more relevant than in considering the successes of our 2020 Year 11 students, their perseverance in the face of adversity and their caring, loving support of one another.  We are immensely proud of their achievement and that their successes have been reflected in their brilliant final grades.  Many of them will continue this progress in our St Simon Stock Catholic School Sixth Form, and for those who choose an alternative path for Post-16 studies, we know from experience that they will be exceptionally well-prepared for the new and exciting challenges that lie ahead.


There were so many outstanding success stories it is impossible to list them all here, but worthy of special mention are the following students.


Thomas Raines who achieved straight Grade 9’s in all subjects.


Louise ChidleyEve DalyKatherine GorePhillip HartJan MocholAlysa Shaikh and Nathalie Valete who all achieved a number of Grade 9’s and achieved an average above Grade 8.


Charlie FarmerKatherine GoreJanice Matthew and Jan Mochol all achieved more than three grades above their expected grades, based on Key Stage Two scores.

Jacqueline Anithottathil, Finley BrightonEve DalyLucy GibsonRoyna Gurung and Natalie Valete all made progress of more than 2 ½ grades above their expected grades, based on Key Stage Two scores.


…and so many more fantastic success stories that it is simply not possible to mention.

Well done to all our students, be proud of everything you have achieved and we wish you the very best for your next steps in education.
