GCSE Results Day
Students and parents celebrate their achievements at GCSE
Just a week after cause for celebration for many 6th Form students, Coombe Dean once again opened its doors bright and early to welcome Year 11 students who were keen to find out how they have got on.
Headteacher Kevin Dyke and members of teaching and support staff were delighted to share in the celebrations of students as they received a set of outcomes the school are very proud of.
“We understand the nerves our young people experience as they build up to collecting their results” he commented “The wait this year will have been particularly challenging for learners who sat GCSEs this summer, and for their families, given the well-documented realignment of grading with pre-pandemic levels.”
“We are over the moon that a combination of the hard work of students and the dedication of staff has secured outcomes that enable choice and a range of positive next steps. We are pleased to see students rewarded for their hard work and take a huge amount of pleasure as school staff seeing them receive good news and knowing that they can then pursue their chosen path next year and beyond.”
Head of Post-16, Emma Osborn was delighted to confirm places at the school’s 6th Form following a wide range of successes and Jane Cooper, the school’s transition lead and careers mentor, was on hand to offer advice and guidance to students with any questions they had about next steps having opened their results.
Emma Osborn commented "We are proud of the achievements of our students and the spirit in which they have collected the results of their work towards GCSE and equivalent courses. It is wonderful to celebrate with students the best outcome possible from GCSE study which is choice around next steps. We look forward to welcoming a strong cohort into the sixth form in September and are excited for those students who are going on to sixth form study, vocational pathways and apprenticeships elsewhere. We are very proud of all of them."
