St Helen’s School is pleased to announce that Year 13 students have achieved excellent results in their A Level qualifications this summer. An impressive 80% of pupils have accepted offers at first choice Universities and all accepted offers are for Russell Group Universities.
This year, following the cancellation of exams due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, grades were awarded through a process of Teacher Assessed Grades. This process has involved a holistic assessment of the standard at which students are performing, based on a range of evidence gathered over the last two years and according to nationally agreed standards. Each student has been considered individually and students have not been compared with one another. Teacher Assessed Grades have been through a rigorous and comprehensive system of quality control and all grades have been approved and awarded by the exam boards.
We are enormously proud of the achievements and hard work of our students, especially in the context of such a challenging year. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure that all students continued to experience outstanding teaching and learning throughout the pandemic and been able to fulfil their academic potential and continue on to the universities of their choice. We wish all our students every success in the next stage of their learning and look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.
Mrs Alice Lucas, Headmistress
