A-Level & GCSE Results: August 2021
This week, students and staff are celebrating A-Level and GCSE results at RPHS.
Although the students and their teachers have had to cope with a second year of disruption brought about by COVID-19, the school is delighted that the strong results for a wide range of students have been maintained. The changes and challenges posed by the global pandemic have continued to feel overwhelming for our students at times but their focused efforts alongside the support of our dedicated staff has really paid off and our students should feel rightly proud of their achievements this year.
Whilst these grades reflect years of hard work, we recognise that some students would have preferred to have had the opportunity to actually sit their examinations this summer. However, our dedicated staff followed Ofqual’s procedures, making considered judgements based on a clear rationale and a robust range of available evidence, including mock examination grades.
This has been another unsettling year for our students and their families but we know that our staff worked extremely hard to deliver this year’s arrangements so that these results carry the same value as in previous years. We are so proud of all that has been achieved at this unprecedented time and we wish all of our students our very best wishes for September and beyond.
