Woldgate School said that while it is pleased the overall results at A*-A and A*-B have increased, its priority was to ensure that students are supported during this challenging time.

The school said that while it is pleased the overall results at A*-A and A*-B have increased, its priority was to ensure that students are supported during this challenging time.

A school spokesman said: “This spring our students in Year 13 found themselves suddenly unable to take the exams they had prepared so diligently for.

“The realisation that these courses would not lead to an exam itself came at the onset of lockdown and this of course saw an even further significant change to their day-to-day lives. This has been a challenging and unprecedented year for our sixth form students.

“They have since had to prepare to receive results that would be based on their teachers’ professional judgement – teachers who have known and cared for them as an individual throughout their courses – but also on a standardised national moderation system.

“Consequently, we understand that this results day – and the results themselves – are different from previous years.

“While we are pleased that the overall results at A*-A and A*-B, have again increased this year, our priority is to ensure that students are supported at this time.

“Ultimately, we are extremely proud to have worked with our Year 13 and look forward to an opportunity for us to come together in the coming months to celebrate our time together.”
