The grades, which were verified by the Joint Council for Qualifications after a painstaking assessment process, are the culmination of many months of hard work and dedication on the part of pupils and staff, and are supported by a wealth of evidence.
Overall, 67.2% of grades were 9–7 (equivalent to A*/A under the former grading system). There were many superb individual achievements, including seven students who were awarded exclusively grades 8 and 9. Sofia Martin, who has spent the last two years balancing a full academic programme with regular appearances for England U18 Hockey and Tottenham Hotspur F.C. Women, attained a hugely impressive nine grade 9s. She is absolutely thrilled with her results, and is looking to study Maths, Biology and either Economics or Chemistry at A-Level.
Principal, Jo Cameron, commented: ‘These results reflect the immense courage and tenacity of Queenswood’s pupils and staff, and are thoroughly well-deserved. I would like to pay tribute to teachers and students up and down the country who have persevered in the face of tremendous challenges over the last eighteen months. I am greatly looking forward to welcoming these pupils back in September, as they embark on the next exciting phase of their academic journey.’
