Ullswater Community College staff and students have received their 2020 A Level results.
Headteacher Mr Gilby commented: “Ullswater Community College couldn’t be more proud to serve our young people, their families and the communities they come from.
“This year the situation with COVID-19 and the shutdown of schools in March makes this results day unique. The grades our students are receiving are the result of the national standardisation of centre-assessed grades we submitted back in June. We hope that the students believe they have received grades that reflect their hard work and depth of learning throughout their courses. We congratulate them all on the manner in which they have coped in these quite extraordinary times.”
“The majority of students will be pleased with their results and will have the keys to go onto to their anticipated destinations in September. We acknowledge that for some they may be disappointed and we await further information from the government in relation to recent announcements and any additional steps we may need to take. It will be a challenge with the restrictions in place in September in schools and we are determined to make sure each individual student has every opportunity available to maximise their grades moving forwards.”
“The DfE have cancelled Performance Tables for this year and there will be no amalgamated headline results published for schools, which is right and proper given the circumstances around the exams this year. There is no doubt that leaves the focus on those that really deserve it, the people we should all be congratulating; the students.”
Mr Jackson, Head of Sixth form added: “Our students are more than the sum of their grades and whilst we can’t talk about all the successes we have seen this year, we want to celebrate the individuals who have excelled for all sorts of reasons.
“Pleasing-results were achieved by many including:
- Oliver Winspear
- Kirsten Scott
- Luke Farley
- Emma Noble
- Maisie Jones
“Representing a good cross-section of the year group, these students excelled on both traditional academic courses, as well as our exciting suite of vocational subjects, allowing progression onto a wide variety of university courses, apprenticeships and employment opportunities. I couldn’t be more proud of the achievements of each and every one of our students this year.”
