'Superb' GCSE Results
This morning Year 11 students at Abbeywood Community School are celebrating their excellent GCSE results. These superb results are a reflection of the incredible hard work and dedication shown by staff and students, along with wonderful support from our parents and carers. The 2020 GCSE outcomes have been awarded based on school assessment which were calculated using a rigorous standardisation process and they show our school continues on its upward trajectory of improvement. We are very proud of all our students’ achievements as they have done themselves and us proud in this challenging year. There were many notable stand-out high-achieving performers including: Dylan Parrish, Kush Awasthi, Robyn Wright, Anais Elezi, Reba Khalid, Mac Elmorssy, Cameron Thompson, Jennifer Crossley, Aishu Putravu, Khushi Ashwin, Harvey Wong, Emily Hathaway, Charlie Chamberlain and Jamelia Meredith. Amy Barber, Hameedah Bello, Kai Laity, Eloise Smith-Ferrier, Eshe James and Tom McDermott are also worthy of individual mention in making particularly strong progress in their time at Abbeywood.
Headteacher, Dave Howe said, “With lockdown and so much uncertainty surrounding the results process this has been a really challenging year for us all and particularly so for those students receiving GCSE results this summer. Despite these challenges these outstanding results are testament to our students’ resilience and dedication, our strong school ethos and the commitment of all our staff. I am deeply proud of all our students and these superb GCSE results are a reflection of five years of us learning and growing together in our happy, hard-working school. I am particularly pleased so many of our Year 11 students will be staying with us in Post 16 for their next exciting part of their journey and we will continue to help each student realise their ambitious dreams. I would like to pay tribute to all our parents and carers, who have supported us so well throughout this challenging year, as this very strong set of GCSE results would not have been possible without them.”
Key Stage 4 Leader, Richard Bendry added, “I am really proud to have been your head of year as I have been so impressed with the way you have supported each other and your families throughout the challenges this year has presented us. Your resilience, kindness and dedication have brought you all to this point of success and you are now set up for a really successful future where you can begin to turn you ambitions into a reality.”
