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. Despite this disruption there has been some incredible success for youngsters across the borough and we would like to celebrate in particular the success of:

Isabel Harry

Eleven grade 9s and an A

Pelumi Babalola

Ten grade 9s and an A

Dorsa Daleri

Jenson Beer

Drew Longhurst

We also have many students who achieved outstanding grades and made significant progress in their time at Bishop Wand exceeding the targets set based on their KS2 scores and in the process becoming role models to all our students, showing the power of hard work and determination.

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.
