Students at the Hurlingham Academy are celebrating taking their next steps as young adults after receiving their GCSE grades today.
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.
Leon Wilson, Principal of the Hurlingham Academy:
"These Year 11s have been a fantastic group of young people to teach. Over the past five years, not only have they shown dedication to their academic studies, but they have also remained positive and active members of our school community. Despite the challenges and uncertainties of recent months, I hope they will each take great pride in what they have achieved at the Hurlingham Academy, knowing that they can take their next steps in further education with confidence. We look forward to seeing what they achieve at Sixth Form and beyond."
