Alison continued: “This cohort did not sit their GCSEs due to the coronavirus pandemic, so achieving such fantastic grades in their first public examinations should be applauded. Given the well publicised ‘return to 2019 grade boundaries’, we are pleased that this cohort has achieved so highly. We are very proud of our reputation for academic excellence as a leading school in the eastern region.
“Those students who have chosen to go on to university are taking up places at a wide range of courses and destinations, which reflect the broad but targeted A Level programmes in our Sixth Form. From medicine, architecture, veterinary science, psychology and biomedical science, to fashion, drama, film and TV, at Oxford, Cambridge, King’s College, Leeds, NUA and UEA. I am sure they will all have a fantastic time and grasp every opportunity afforded them to challenge and stretch themselves as well as engaging in broader aspects of university life. We look forward to staying in touch with them and hearing about their accomplishments as they join our strong alumnae network.”
