As a result of Covid-19, students and staff across the country have found themselves in an unprecedented situation this year with the cancellation of GCSE examinations.

Students have therefore been awarded grades based on what their teachers predicted they would achieve, except in cases where the model created by Ofqual has awarded a higher grade.

The majority of students are now gearing up to start their A Levels at The Regis School sixth form, which is seeing its strongest ever application rate. Last week, the sixth form celebrated its A Level students securing places on some very ambitious university courses including in medicine, law and engineering.

The moment of truth

David Oakes, principal of The Regis School, said: “I would like to congratulate all our Year 11s on their hard work, perseverance and dedication throughout their time at The Regis School.

"Even amidst the challenges the last few months have presented, they have proven their strength of character and continued to be excellent ambassadors for our school.

"I look forward to seeing many of them back at our Sixth Form for the start of the new term, as they continue to set their sights high at A Level.”

Caroline Saunders, year 11 raising standards lead at The Regis School, added: “I am so proud of our Class of 2020. Whilst they were not able to sit their final exams, the grades awarded reflect their hard work in every lesson and each mock exam they sat.

A proud family

"It has been a privilege to lead this year group throughout their time at The Regis School and I wish them all the very best for the future.”

One year 11 student, Yawmid Udden, who wants to pursue a career that utilises his maths skills, said of his results: “I am really happy. There are so many teachers I would like to thank who helped me along the way.”

Parent of Year 11 Posy, Mrs Wheeler, said: “Congratulations Posy for your hard work throughout your time at The Regis School. Thank you to the teachers for their enthusiasm and encouragement.”

Posy – who has secured a scholarship to Christ’s Hospital to study Maths at A Level – added: “I am extremely pleased and proud.”
