Exam Results

The following summary is the message from our Headteacher, Janet Sheriff, released on the results days.

Prince Henry's Grammar School A Level Results 2020

Congratulations to the many students who have secured a place at a university, workplace, or an apprenticeship! Staff at Prince Henry’s wish you every success in this next stage of your life.

Whilst overall school A level results are in line with previous years, and many Year 13 students are very happy with the outcome of today’s results, it is important to state that school leaders are extremely unhappy and frustrated with the impact that the national grade standardisation process has had on some individual students. Too many students have been given what appear to be arbitrary grades, that do not reflect their teacher’s assessment of their ability. 

Staff at Prince Henry’s are working hard with those students who have been adversely affected by the impact of COVID-19 to help them secure an appropriate route to achieve their goals. This includes guiding students through the appeal process. This is difficult due to the last-minute introduction (on Tuesday evening!) of an additional appeal route. Schools have yet to be given the criteria for appealing through this route, and it is not expected until the beginning of next week! Gavin Williamson (and the media) have described this additional appeal route as using ‘mock’ results, but in reality we believe that the criteria, which will be published by Ofqual, will be much more precise about what is needed for this type of appeal. Hopefully, this will help some more of our students secure the grade that they deserve. The team of talented and dedicated staff at Prince Henry’s are, as always, committed to helping all students be the best that they can be.

It is important to state that, despite our frustration, we are still incredibly proud of our students’ achievements this year, especially during the difficult circumstances that have arisen from the COVID-19 crisis. Students may not have sat exams this summer, but they have worked hard during their two-year course and many have achieved excellent outcomes as a result, and this should be celebrated.

Prince Henry's Grammar School GCSE Results 2020

Despite all the uncertainty and challenge of the last few months, students at Prince Henry’s have produced an impressive set of results. Year 11 students, with the support of their teachers, have worked hard over the last two years and have been rewarded with outstanding results. An impressive number achieved top grades across a range of subjects, including the much sought-after grade 9 (equivalent to an A*+). In addition, the analysis of examination results suggests that Prince Henry’s students of all ability levels have made very good progress whilst at our school.

There are some amazing individual successes with an impressive number of students securing the equivalent of a grade A, A* or A*+ (grade 7, 8 or 9) in all of their GCSEs. There are too many to mention here, but of special note are George Jopson and Louisa Kotzee (both achieved eleven GCSEs at grade 9), Farah Mackey (ten grade 9s), Cameron Brogden (eight grade 9s), Omar Haider and Lucy Habin (seven grade 9s each).

The majority of Prince Henry’s Year 11 students will continue studying in our on-site Sixth Form, but there are still a limited number of places available for other students wishing to join our highly successful sixth form at Prince Henry’s Grammar School.

“I am extremely proud of all of our Year 11 students and staff - they have worked together to secure these outstanding results! Our students show real enjoyment and dedication to their learning and this, together with the expert teaching, guidance and support from our dedicated staff means that very many students have achieved their very best. Personally it is really pleasing to see so many students achieve the grades they need to progress to the next stage of their learning. My congratulations go to all our students, together with my thanks to both staff and students for their hard work.”
