Pitsford School’s GCSE students have secured the best ever results in the school’s history in what has been the most challenging two years any students have faced in living memory. Over one in five grades secured by the Class of 2021 were the best possible ‘9’ (21% of grades), with an extraordinary 57% of grades being 7-9 (which in old money is grade A*-A).
That the students have done so well reflects very well on them: the school had each student undertake a number of assessments which determined the teacher assessed grade, which were rigorously marked according to exam board criteria and were then scrutinised for Quality Assurance by Ofqual. These superb results have been earned and are well-deserved and reflect the seriousness of the students, their talent and the commitment of their teachers to supporting their success.
It is difficult to single anyone out when all merit praise, but special mention must be made of Athul W who secured ten grade 9s, as well as Adele C, Erin J, Jonathan S, Dillon B and James R who almost equalled that incredible trawl. Well done to all our Pitsfordians – the future is at its brightest today.
