The Principal, Miss Cronin, indicated that she was very happy with the Government decision to use CAGs having every confidence in the integrity of her staff and their ability to predict realistic, accurate grades.
Whilst she remains disappointed that the year group concerned did not have the opportunity to shine in taking the GCSE examinations, she felt the CAG decision was the fairest and most pragmatic outcome in these difficult circumstances.
“I want to place on record my congratulations to the pupils and staff for all their endeavours over the GCSE courses and now wish Year 11 even greater success and happiness as they pursue their new courses at Sixth Forms and Colleges. I have no doubt that they will all go on to achieve great things, making an impact on society as well as accountability measures. It has been a challenging time for Year 11 but I am confident that they will not allow the ‘lost learning’ to hold them back.
I would also like to thank parents/carers for all their support motivating and encouraging the pupils to be their best selves throughout their time at the school.”
