King Ethelbert School are celebrating excellent GCSE results. The students have done really well under incredibly challenging circumstances. Many of the students are staying on at King Ethelbert School in the 6th form to study the brilliant IBCP.
This year has seen so much controversy and so many changes of direction from the government about how grades are awarded, which has been very frustrating and unsettling for the students affected. Teachers and leaders diligently went through an incredibly rigorous and robust process in producing and moderating the CAGs that schools were asked for, to ensure they were fair and accurate. They based these grades on a whole range of assessment information and detailed knowledge of their students. It is absolutely right that these grades are not moved down by the government’s statistical model and the students get the grades they rightly deserve.
Vicky Willis, Head of School said: ‘Today is about celebrating with our fabulous students. We are enormously proud of them. Their excellent results are testament to their hard work, determination, perseverance and resilience over the last 5 years and more. King Ethelbert School is a fantastic team, and encouraging and believing in the students are their brilliant teachers and staff who have worked tirelessly with incredible diligence and professional integrity in the face of the ongoing challenges thrown at them.’
