Students and staff at BMS celebrated an excellent set of GCSE results yesterday. Following a last-minute change to arrangements last week, the grades awarded this year were derived primarily from assessments made by teachers and schools, known as centre-assessed grades, and based on an individual’s past attainment and performance.
Headmaster, Alex Tate, said: “Despite the disruption and uncertainty of this year’s process and particularly the controversy of the last few days, our students have remained positive and determined. The superb set of grades they received are in line with our historical results, thanks to the robust and professional manner in which our teachers and other staff assessed the data. Because of that, our students can be assured that their results are a reflection of all their personal hard work and dedication and they are richly deserved.
“These talented young people have missed out on so many opportunities during the past few months and I look forward to welcoming so many of them back in September to begin their A Level studies. My congratulations to them all.”
