GCSE results day: Blue Coat head praises an 'unbelievable' year
Date published: 12 August 2021
All these Blue Coat students achieved grades 9-7 across all of their results
It was a wonderful morning at Blue Coat as students and their families celebrated a fantastic set of GCSE results.
A total of 35% of all results were awarded at grades 9-7.
88% of all students achieved a grade 4 and above in English and Maths and 70% of all students a grade 5 and above in English and Maths.
Headteacher Rob Higgins said: "Our Year 11 students have been unbelievable this year.
"They have had to endure so much disruption and uncertainty to their learning, but the determination and resilience they have shown as well as the good humour they have maintained throughout the year, has been humbling to witness.
"They all deserve the excellent results they have received this morning, which have been achieved through their hard work and the sheer enthusiasm they have maintained for their learning.
"They have also received so much help and support from their families and the staff at school.
"It has been an incredibly difficult 18 months for everyone, but on behalf of all of our young people, I’d like to thank their families and all the staff at Blue Coat for everything they have done and sacrificed on their behalf.
"It is fantastic to see them achieve such great GCSE results but it’s even better to see the caring, talented and thoughtful young adults they have all become.
"We are incredibly proud of everyone single one of our Year 11 students and are looking forward to welcoming them into our Sixth Form, or supporting them in their studies elsewhere."
