Wyedean students shine through
A-level and BTEC results at Wydean Sixth Form have excelled despite the harsh national downgrading of teacher assessment grades by Ofqual.
Students at Wyedean Sixth Form have produced another fantastic set of results despite coping with a global pandemic, lockdown and a much-publicised national moderation process, which has resulted in grades being downgraded nationally in significant numbers. Experienced and well-qualified teachers, a diverse subject offer, and an outstanding focus on personal development and academic achievement has meant that once again, students have excelled across a wide range of A level and BTEC subjects.
Johnathan Lane, Director of Sixth Form reported “results at Wyedean are up 6% overall. Students who achieved an A*-B have excelled with a 10% improvement on last year’s cohort. An amazing 11% of students achieved A*s and 12% of students achieved 3 As or AAB – the school’s highest ever figure. This is a fantastic achievement and I could not be prouder of how well our students have fared.”
Principal, Gwennan Jeremiah said, “We are immensely proud of our students who have achieved excellent results despite exceptionally difficult circumstances. The professionalism of our teaching staff, who worked tirelessly to generate and moderate centre-assessment grades, should be commended. Despite our superb results overall, in an unprecedented year, where grades have been moderated using an Ofqual designed algorithm, there will be appeals ahead. Our community can be confident that we will work tirelessly to support every one of our students to be best-placed to secure their future aspirations.”
