Headteacher Elizabeth Dormor said:
“We are delighted to be able to announce another excellent set of A level results. It has been another incredibly difficult year and our students have had to have tremendous resilience. The grades they have received today demonstrate their hard work and dedication to their studies during their time in the sixth form here at Prince William School.”
Ms Minoughan, Director of Sixth Form said, “I’m delighted that our Year 13 students have a set of results of which they can be very proud, and that the vast majority of them are able to go on the post-18 pathway of their choice.”
Formal public examinations were cancelled because of Covid this year, so the grades awarded by the examination boards and are based on the teacher assessed grades that the school submitted. Each of these grades was based on the evidence of each students’ work during the course and has gone through a rigorous internal and external quality assurance process.
