Over the last few weeks GCSE, A Level, BTEC and T Level students have been receiving their results.
Results day can be a hugely exciting time and heralds the start of a new chapter; I wish all those who received their results the very best with their future endeavours.
Results day can also be very daunting but there is plenty of advice available to students including the National Careers Service Exam Results Helpline: 0800 100 900.
Our young people have been through an extraordinarily difficult time due to the disruption to their learning caused by the pandemic. I know young people have worked incredibly hard, supported by their teachers, to catch up on missed learning time.
This has been reflected in the results our local schools received among them The Weald Sixth Form recording their best ever set of A Level results and Collyer’s students achieving 71% high grades (A*-B). Tanbridge House School received its highest ever Attainment 8 score based on exams alone, Millais exceeded the outcomes in all the key accountability measures achieved in 2019, Forest’s results also compared very favourably with those from before the pandemic and will be further celebrating the students’ successes at their Awards Evening in November and 76% of students at The Weald School attained a grade 4 or above in English and Maths. While the highest grades may catch the eye in every school individual students will have achieved outcomes as a result of hard work of which they can be really proud.
Congratulations once again to all those who received their results and thank you to their teachers. After all the difficulties of the last three years it is great to feel a sense of normality returning to the exam season.
Horsham Park also achieved a very exciting result this week as it was voted “Local Favourite” status in the Fields in Trust UK’s Favourite Park competition. This means Horsham Park finished in the top 20 per cent of the votes nationally, a huge accolade for a much loved local asset.
