It was fantastic to welcome our Y13 students into school today to collect their results. We are so immensely proud of the way these students have shown such strength of character, fortitude and patience through the significant disruption to their last year at Blue Coat. They have had to accept not being able to sit their exams and have had to wait for results that informs their next steps in life. When we look back in the future we will hold a unique and special pride for the class of 2020!
We offer huge congratulations to our students whose hard work over the last few years means that as from mid morning today around 93% of students have accepted and secured a place at University – and this is growing in number by the hour! A tremendous achievement.
I am also proud to share that 16 students have gained entry to Oxford or Cambridge – one of the highest number we have had.
It has been a joy to see our students again today and to see them enjoying themselves as they celebrate with friends.
After such challenging and difficult months our students deserve unreserved congratulations and we wish them all the very best for their next steps, whether that be University or other avenues of their choice.
