Students “rewarded for their perseverance” with GCSE results

Friday 13 August 2021

GCSE Students have been celebrated for their hard work after two years of unprecedented educational challenges.

69.9% of Bailiwick students got at least five A* - C grades. The new 1-9 system is slowly replacing A*-G and this percentage equates to a least five 9-4 grades.

Due to the covid pandemic, teachers continually assessed students throughout their studies in place of exams. This teacher-led assessment formed the basis of their final grades.

“Today’s results are a testament to the hard work and resilience of all of the island’s students at Level 2 or GCSE Level,” said the President of Education, Sport and Culture, Deputy Andrea Dudley-Owen.

“The virus has had a huge impact on the way students have been able to study, however the results show that they have overcome these challenges and been rewarded for their perseverance.

“They could not have done this without the similarly hard work of school staff, who have once again had to deliver teacher assessed grades this year, and the Committee are extremely thankful for all of the profession’s commitment in the last 24 months,” she said.

The principals and heads of the Bailiwick schools have shared their pride in their pupils this year.

“Congratulations to all our students for your achievements in what has been a challenging couple of years for your age group in particular,” said Liz Coffey, Executive Principal of the Secondary School Partnership.

Headteacher of St Anne’s School in Alderney, Martin Winward, said his pupils have been truly “resilient” these past few years.

“The results are a true reflection of what we aspire for our young people: ‘Inspired to Learn...Supported to Succeed’."
