Exam Results 2021

 This year we have another two academically gifted, curious and hard-working cohorts of students receiving GCSE and A Level grades. We are so proud of them and all that they achieved with their studies and contributed to the life of the school through a very challenging 18 months. We also thank all the staff for their expertise and knowledge and dedication to producing the best education possible for all our students through both live and remote teaching and for handling the grading process this year so carefully, rigorously and professionally.

This year schools submitted teacher assessed grades in place of summer examinations. Kendrick School followed its Centre Policy to the letter, including subjecting all grades to an internal quality assurance process before they were submitted. The examination boards took a sample of grades and their associated evidence for their external quality assurance process. All our grades were accepted without changes by the examination boards and issued on results days in the summer.

The key headlines are below and the destinations of Year 13 students can be found HERE

  • At A Level 92% of grades awarded were at A* to B.
  • At GCSE 85% grades awarded were at grades 8 & 9.

We look forward to celebrating the achievements of our students with staff, parents and students at our A Level and GCSE Presentation of Certificate events later in the term.

Summary of Exam Results 2020 

  • At A Level 32% of grades awarded were at A* and 90% A* to B.
  • 54% of GCSE grades were awarded at grade 9 and 81% at grades 8&9.

The story of how these students were denied by COVID 19 the opportunity of sitting live examinations and turning instead to centre assessment grades and exam board standardisation is well documented and in the end we were all pleased that the final grades have been formed as the better of these two grades.

There are rightly no national performance tables or value added calculations this year.

Summary of Exam Results 2019 

This has been a fantastically successful year for examination results and we congratulate all the students on their hard work and successes and thank the staff for their expertise and dedication to the students’ education.
