A Level Results - August 21Posted on: 10/08/2021
Students at Barton Court received their A Level results on Tuesday 10 August and deserve huge credit for the success they have achieved in the light of the challenges presented to learning over the last two years. In particular, the success students have achieved in no small part is due to the determination and resilience they have shown as they have coped with the challenges presented by the pandemic.
Our Headteacher, Jonathan Hopkins, said:
“We are delighted that so many of our students have achieved grades that are enabling them to progress to university or secure high quality employment opportunities.
As a year group our Year 13 students were both talented and hard-working but were not able to sit their final exams after another lockdown was announced in January. Instead students had to work with the additional pressure of knowing that they had to evidence standards for their teachers over a long period of time and not just in the exam hall at the end of their course. We are delighted that just over 70% of the grades for this cohort were at A*-B.
Credit must also be given to staff who worked tirelessly during the pandemic to deliver lessons online and meet the challenge presented by remote education so that students were supported and were able to achieve.
Particular mention must be made of fourteen students, out of our cohort of 105, who have been awarded three or more A*/Distinction* grades in their subjects. This is a tremendous achievement and these students rightly deserve additional recognition."
