A Level Results 2020

It has been a year like no other, but our students can be proud of the grades awarded today. They have earnt themselves places on a varied and ambitious range of university and apprenticeship courses across the country and it has been a privilege and a joy to work alongside this cohort of students. I congratulate every one of them on their achievements and would like to thank our parent body and all the staff for their inspiration and dedication over the last seven years. 

“This year group have been an incredible asset to our School, both in terms of the academic standards they have set but also in terms of their contributions to the wider School and community. They are a fantastic group and we know they are going to achieve great things!”  Miss Rook 

Today we were able to share a moment of recognition and celebration for the extraordinary resilience and determination shown by our students; it was amazing to hear the individual stories of aspiration, of hurdles overcome and hopes fulfilled. From Accountancy to Zoology, our students ambition and interests are taking them into an array of disciplines across the spectrum of the arts, humanities, STEM and vocational courses, such as medicine, and on to a host of exciting destinations, from Aberystwyth to Durham, with Nottingham, Royal Holloway and Southampton being especially popular choices. These are alongside an exceptional achievement by Matthew Jenkins who has deferred a place to study Mathematics at Cambridge University.  

While we are proud of all our students, some exceptional individual results were awarded and are noted below.

GCSE Results 2020

As you will be aware this is a GCSE results day like no other for students who were not given the chance to show what they may have achieved via the process of their final GCSE exams. This year’s process has been so very different but we now have clarity that the GCSE grades students receive will be the centre assessed grades submitted by schools to Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulations). 

Mr Wood led the celebration for the students and said:

“It was such a joy to see all of our Year 11 students again. We have missed them so much! Welcoming them back into the school was very special indeed. I felt very privileged to be present as students opened their envelopes to see the outcome of all of their hard work over the years. I am immensely proud of them all and so glad that so many of them will be here as a part of our sixth form in September.”

We are delighted that our students at Bishop Wand have again managed to achieve some of the best examination results in the country. Students and their families should be rightfully proud of their individual results.

Normally at this time schools would share with you school performance data, including pass rates and subject performance measures. This year however The Spelthorne Secondary Schools are in agreement that due to these unusual circumstances it is not the right time for us to share this data and our combined focus should be on the community of young people we serve.
