Congratulations to Kingsbridge Community College GCSE Students Class of 202112th August 2021
The GCSE students at Kingsbridge Community College have much to celebrate today following a very successful results day. Over the course of their two years of GCSE study, students have had to deal with a disrupted education and a completely different method of assessment for their final grades than has ever been undertaken before. It was a pleasure to witness the students open their envelopes today and get the grades that they deserved and had worked so hard to achieve.
Two students, Safiyah Asharaf and Amelie Raymond achieved grade 9s in all the subjects that they studied and Pip Winfield-Wilenski, Anna Williams, Ellie Trowell, Lucy Rossiter, Freya Murgatroyd, Sam Jones, Marianne Jackson, Oliver Dudley and Vanessza Varga all achieved a grade average of 8s and 9s – the highest grades that students can be awarded. They should be rightly proud of these exceptional performances.
Performance measures for schools have been suspended due to Covid 19, usually schools are not only measured on the achievement of students but also on the progress that they make from their Year 6 starting point when they enter secondary education. It is a pleasure to be able to celebrate Louise Martin, Zoe Durant, Megan Gidley, Anna Paskins, Josh Harper, Joshua McClounnan, Louis Papenfus, Annabel Hewitt, Carlito Rodrigues, Isabella Snape, Phoebe Carpenter, Ollie Pengelly-Turner, Ella Hassall and Finn Bullingham who were among the students who made exceptional progress throughout their studies due to their consistently high levels of effort and determination to be successful. These students were role models to others in showing that we can all achieve anything that we set our minds to.
We are proud of the accomplishments of all of our students. This year group have flourished throughout their studies, despite the tremendous challenges that they have had to overcome, and are sure to continue to have a positive impact on others in the next stage of their lives. Tina Graham, Principal said “I couldn’t be more proud of the accomplishments of such a wonderful group of students. This particular cohort of Year 11 students have risen to the challenge of the last 18 months with determination and resilience. They have continued to be an inspiration to our community though all of the hardship that they have had to face and, most frequently, they have done so with a smile on their face and a great sense of camaraderie. I would like to thank all of the staff and families who have supported and encouraged students to believe in themselves and make the most of their opportunities; families in particular have played a pivotal role in the success of students this year, with all of their encouragement to keep learning through the various lockdowns that we have endured and so they deserve a special thank you. I wish all students the very best in their future endeavours.”
