In a year where results were expected to fall nationally after a 2 year absence of externally assessed exams, Nower Hill students have bucked the trend and delivered the school’s best ever A Level results, better even than the past 2 years of Centre Assessed Grades! We could not be more proud of our young people and send them our heartfelt congratulations.
We are in awe of the determination, resilience and optimism of our students who in spite of all the disruption to their education over the past two and a half years, have excelled. 45% of all grades were at A*/A and 70% of all grades at A* to B; that really is a remarkable achievement for a cohort of students sitting public examinations for the first time. The best possible outcome is that our young people leave us so well equipped to take their next steps, with them all going on to a variety of exciting university and apprenticeship courses.
Building the skills and confidence to ensure excellence and success is of course, very much a community effort and we feel very fortunate indeed to have such a strong school community, where everyone is invested in the success and achievement of our young people. I would like to extend the most sincere thanks to our very hard working staff, both those in the classroom and all the support staff who help to create such a positive and welcoming environment for our students and enable the school to run so smoothly. A huge thank you as well to all of our wonderful parents and carers, who always work so collaboratively with us in the best interests of their children and have offered their unconditional support over the past 7 years. Finally, thank you to the students themselves who have been an absolute joy to work with and have kept their ‘eyes on the prize’, rather than succumbing to much of the negative reporting around the difficulties that this particular cohort of students have faced. They have learned the very important life lesson that hard work really pays off, whatever the circumstances!
“Each and every one of our young people should be proud of what they have achieved and I hope there will be many joyous family celebrations tonight! Our very best wishes to them all as they progress to the next stage of their lives,” Louise Voden, Headteacher.
