GCSE results 2021: Ark Alexandra Academy students celebrate after ‘challenging 18 months’

Students at Ark Alexandra Academy are celebrating successful GCSE results after a ‘challenging 18 months’ during the coronavirus pandemic.

Thursday, 12th August 2021, 6:32 pm

Results were announced this morning and, much like with A-levels on Tuesday, grades were submitted by teachers based on evidence from mock exams, coursework and tests.

Liam Collins, principal of Ark Alexandra, said: “We have had a challenging 18 months, but today we are celebrating the individual achievements of our students and supporting them on their chosen next steps into our Sixth Form, local FE colleges and into apprenticeships.

“There are so many reasons why this cohort deserves to celebrate their achievements in their examinations. Firstly, these results are the culmination of many years of work and study, and students deserve our respect and admiration for everything they have achieved.” Secondly, they have shown determination and resilience to keep going while a global pandemic impacted their two years of study for their GCSEs.

“With so many students meeting the requirements of our Post-16 Programmes we are looking forward to them joining us next year into our exceptionally successful Sixth Form.”
