Smiles and celebrations for Hele’s Students collecting GCSE and Level 2 results

It was wonderful to see Year 11 pupils collect their GCSE results at Hele’s School this morning, where Principal, Justine Mason was present to share in celebrations with students, staff, governors and parents:

“Today marks a set of results incomparable with any other year but of equal worth in every way. It is also an important milestone in what has been a challenging time for everyone but particularly our staff and students, having had significant disruption to GCSE and Level 2 courses over the past 18 months; I am incredibly proud of both the staff and students for the way they have embraced every challenge thrown at them during this time, from remote learning through to the cancellation of exams and the introduction of Teacher Assessed Grades, which is the evidence-based system used to determine this year’s outcomes. It is extremely pleasing to see that students haven’t allowed the pandemic to define them and have really stepped up, carried on to the best of their ability and are today collecting grades of which they are truly deserving. I am delighted for the students achieving at every level, knowing they have achieved their own personal best.

We had some exceptional individual performances to celebrate with the top five students achieving an incredible 31 grade 9s between them! Shannon Butt led the way with a magnificent eight grade 9s and a grade 8, followed by Erin Rumble with seven grade 9s and two 8s and Kathryn Wilkinson rounding off a trio of top females with six grade 9s and three 8s.  Along with a bumper crop of grades 7, 8 and 9 for a raft of other students, today’s results are a testament to the hard work, resilience and dedication shown by all associated with Team Hele’s. I am so proud of our students for what they have achieved; they thoroughly deserve their successes!”

Raising Standards Leader, Emma Clapham added, “We always talk to the students about GCSE results being the passport into the next phase of their life, opening doors and creating new paths down which to walk. Never has this been truer than this year when students can really begin to look forward again. It is always a joy on Results Day to see students reach their potential and prepare to take those well-deserved next steps. We look forward to welcoming back a large number of the GCSE cohort to our Sixth Form in September where we are sure we will see them continue to flourish and for those moving onto pastures new, we wish them the very best of luck!”
