Superb GCSE results at The Abbey


Today sees the Year 11 cohort at The Abbey receive a remarkable set of GCSE results, hugely to their credit in the wake of the disruption of the pandemic.

Over 90% of all results were at grades 9-7 (A*-A). Some 47% of grades were the top grade 9 and over 75% were 9-8 (A*).

In total 22 students secured nine or more grade 9s and a quarter of the year group received all 9s and 8s.

In any circumstances these would be excellent results. Against the backdrop of Covid-19, disruption to learning and heightened uncertainty, they are extraordinary. They are testament to an outstanding learning culture that prioritises enthusiasm, positive engagement and the capacity to thrive in the face of challenge.

Head of The Abbey School, Will le Fleming, commented: “We are so proud of the year group as a whole and for what they have achieved, given all that has happened over the last two years. But above all we are proud of every single individual. Our goal is to support each student to achieve their own personal best and to live and study with joy.

We are so grateful to the wonderful staff, across every role in the school, who have supported and guided students and helped them achieve these results. We can’t wait to work alongside this brilliant cohort as they go on to Sixth Form and all that lies beyond.”
