Results Day 2020
Following the unexpected cancellation of all exams across the UK due to the global pandemic, Results Day across the country has left students feeling more anxious than normal. However, for most students at St Julian’s School, their concerns were put aside as they discovered that their hard work had resulted in a place at university.
Some of our students achieved some excellent grades. Arwel Davies, who after receiving his overall results of A*AB, was happy to confirm that he has been accepted into Bristol University. He will start his law degree in September. Reflecting on his well-deserved achievement. Arwel commented: “I’m so happy… I can’t wait to start”.
Another of our Post 16 students who was delighted to receive his results was Robert Leonard. Robert opened his long-awaited envelope to find that he achieved a fantastic A*A*A! Thanks to these brilliant results, he has been accepted into Bath University to begin a degree in mathematics.
As with the A Level results day, this year’s GCSE results have been very different than what schools usually anticipate. The impact of the global pandemic has left students with additional sense of anxiety around their results as a decision was made to cancel their summer exams. This meant that rather than participated in the traditional requirements of sitting long exams, students have been graded on their estimates.
Despite the uncertainty, students eagerly arrived at school this morning to collect their results letters and left the school site with much excitement.
We are delighted with the excellent results achieved by many of our students. Many students expressed their interest in returning to St Julian’s School to attend our Sixth Form centre after receiving exceptional grades. Finley Macleon, Keira Murray and Richard Reeves were among this year’s GCSE ‘High Flyers’ who received over 10 A*-A grades. An outstanding achievement!
Mr Curtis, Headteacher at St. Julian’s, commented:
Congratulations to all our students who have achieved the grades they needed to secure a place at university. It was lovely to see so many smiling faces as students gained confirmation from universities. We wish them well for the future and every success in their chosen career path.
