CELEBRATIONS were on the timetable for many Vale students as the nervous wait for A-Level results came to an end.
Exam results were revealed with teenagers across Evesham and Pershore discovering whether they had secured the grades they needed to progress to life at university.
The Coronavirus pandemic saw all A-Level exams axed meaning the grades received today (Thursday) were based on in-school assessments which were then moderated by the exam watchdog
Because of the pandemic, education chiefs at Worcestershire County Council supported by Worcestershire Children First have undertaken not to collect and publish school level data.
As a result, schools across the Vale were not required to release results for students and the school overall.
Despite this, Prince Henry’s High School celebrated the achievements of their students including Daniel Hains who recorded three A*s and one A to secure his place at the University of Oxford to study medicine and Mia Gittens who achieved three A*s and two A grades
They were among 155 students to complete their A-Levels at the Victoria Avenue school with the vast majority of students earning their place at their chosen universities.
Among the top performers were Anders Beavis-Berry with an A*, two As and a B, Georgina Hiscock and Laura Millar with three As, Alice Nishigaki and Melissa Radley with an A* and two As and Samuel Shattock with four As.
Delighted headteacher Dr Tony Evans said: “These results reflect the hard work of the students, their parents and the teachers here at Prince Henry’s who have supported them.
“We wish all our Year 13 students every success with their future careers. We are sorry our time with them was cut short, but we are all very proud of them”
No results were revealed by Pershore High School but headteacher Phil Hanson offered his congratulations to all of his students and staff.
“We are really proud of how they have conducted themselves through this very unsettling time. Thanks to the hard work of our students and staff the vast majority of them have achieved the grades that allow them to progress as intended,” he said.
“As always we are available to support those students who require further guidance about their next steps and they should contact the school for an appointment.
“We look forward to hearing our students continued successes in the future and thank them for their contribution to Pershore High School over the last six years.”
