King Ethel­bert School is cel­e­brat­ing some fan­tas­tic GCSE and BTEC results achieved by the relent­less hard work of their year 11 stu­dents. Over half the stu­dents achieved a pass in both Eng­lish and Maths and the very top grades of 97 were achieved in at least 5 sub­jects by 10% of the cohort. Stu­dents nav­i­gated the con­stantly chang­ing chal­lenges of the pan­demic through­out their 2 year GCSE and BTEC courses and they coped with this with resilience and deter­mi­na­tion, work­ing hard with their teach­ers to rise to learn­ing chal­lenges and adapt ways of working.

Head­teacher, Vicky Willis, said: “I am so proud of the stu­dents and what they have achieved, espe­cially given the sub­stan­tial amount of face to face teach­ing that they lost. They have earned their grades by sus­tained effort and hard work over time and with the sup­port and exper­tise of their teach­ers. A huge thank you must go to the teach­ing team who have nav­i­gated the con­stantly chang­ing para­me­ters and chal­lenges with pro­fes­sion­al­ism, intel­li­gence and integrity, and to the wider staff team and par­ents for the numer­ous ways that they have sup­ported the stu­dents and the school.”

There were some excel­lent indi­vid­ual suc­cesses. Among these were Oscar Reed, Olivia Brown and Sap­phire Turner who all achieved 9 GCSE/​BTEC grades, all at the top 97 grades. Olivia Dil­loway and Amelie Judges achieved 9 excel­lent GCSE/​BTEC passes, 8 of which were at the top 97 grades and sim­i­larly, Lois Mab­ber­ley and Alexan­dra Nedelcu secured 7 of their 9 at the top 97 grades.
