Success on timetable as A-Level results revealed

Rob George 11th Aug, 2021   0

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 on Tuesday (August 10) were based on in-school assessments.

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 Sixth Form students are celebrating after achieving impressive results at A-level. A total of 165 students completed their A-Level courses and the vast majority have gained places at their chosen Universities.

Sebastian Banfield, Joseph Blackler and Matthew Burrow all achieved four A* grades and three students have been successfully awarded places at Oxford or Cambridge.

Headteacher Dr Tony Evans said: “Whilst they were unable to sit external examinations due to the extraordinary circumstances of the pandemic, my staff and I are delighted with the outcomes that we have seen.

“These reflect the hard work of the students, their parents and the teachers here at Prince Henry’s who have supported them.

“They have been a lovely year group and they have demonstrated their resilience, determination and perseverance through the difficult circumstances of the pandemic.  Their achievements are fully deserved and we offer them our warmest congratulations.”

No results were revealed by Pershore High School but headteacher Phil Hanson offered his congratulations to all of his students and staff.

“Congratulations to our fabulous Sixth Form students who have once again performed superbly in their A Levels,” he said.

“Despite all the challenges they have faced due to the disruption to their learning over the last two years, they have characteristically shown resilience and great determination to succeed.”
