Nower Hill GCSE Results 2021Posted on: 12/08/2021
On our second results day this summer, we would like to send our hearty congratulations to all of our GCSE students on their excellent results. As we are all aware, the past 2 years have not been easy for any young person, so this makes the fantastic results they have achieved even more impressive. We salute them for the strength, resilience and optimism they have shown.
I would like to extend sincere thanks to our very hardworking staff who have not only supported the students throughout the past 5 years, but have also spent many hours marking, moderating and quality assuring GCSE assessments, in order to ensure that the grades our students received were rigorous, fair and what they truly deserved. We also send our gratitude to the parents and carers of our Year 11 students who have supported them unconditionally and worked so collaboratively with us; for the majority of our students, we look forward to that continued partnership as they progress to Nower Hill’s 6th Form. The success of young people requires a community effort, and we feel very fortunate that everyone in our school community is totally invested in ensuring the success and achievements of our young people.
We all understand what a difficult year this has been and along with the students, were disappointed that the opportunity to demonstrate their talent in actual exams was curtailed. But make no mistake; the grades that they have received are a reflection of the hard work, skill and academic ability that they have demonstrated throughout their time studying for GCSEs and are well deserved. Each and every student should be proud of what they have achieved and more importantly, of the resilience that they have demonstrated in maintaining focus and optimism for the future during these extremely challenging times. We are so proud of our young people and we send them our very best wishes as they progress to the next stage in their education; for the vast majority that will be Nower Hill 6th Form, and we look forward to welcoming you back in September. Others will be progressing to vocational courses at college or apprenticeships, so we wish you the very best of luck in your new settings and please don’t forget to come back to see us and let us know how you are getting on.
