GCSE Results

Students celebrated their GCSE results, having faced months away from school as a result of national lockdowns and Covid restrictions.


Given the circumstances, the Government decided that students’ results would be determined by teachers this year. Each school has considered carefully what a fair grade is for each student, based on what they have been able to learn and achieve during the last two years. These grades were submitted to the exam boards together with supporting evidence, and then quality assured by the exam boards.


So many students did really well including:


  • Ruby Hendy achieved nine grade 9s and a grade 7

  • Anna Cockayne achieved eight grade 9s, two grade 8s

  • Ed Humphries achieved four grade 9s, five grade 8s and a 7

  • Hannah Ainsworth achieved six grade 9s, four grade 8s

  • Oliver Brunton achieved six grade 9s, three grade 8s and a grade 7

  • Maddie Hemper achieved three grade 9s, four grade 8s, two grade 7s and a grade 6

  • Mahima Begum achieved three grade 9s, three grade 8s and a 7

  • Jessica Way made the most progress of all students gaining four grade 8s, five grade 7s and a grade 5 with progress score +3.08.


Joy Ballard, Principal of Ryde Academy said:

“I am delighted for our Year 11 students – they have worked so hard, both this year and last year, despite all of the challenges and disruption that Covid brought. They deserve these grades and I am incredibly proud of what each and every one of them has achieved. Whether they are going onto study A Levels, vocational qualifications, or going into employment or training, they have a bright future ahead.”


David Hatchett, National Director of Secondary Schools at AET said:

“Today’s GCSE results are testament to the hard work of students over what has been a very disruptive two years. I congratulate each and every one of them, and pay tribute to our teachers who have made today’s results possible in these challenging circumstances.”

A Level Results

Sixth formers are today celebrating their Key Stage 5 results, having faced months away from school as a result of national lockdowns and Covid restrictions.


Given the circumstances, the Government decided that students’ results would be determined by teachers. Each school has considered carefully what a fair grade is for each student, based on what they have been able to learn during the two years. These grades were submitted to the exam boards together with supporting evidence, and then quality assured by the exam boards.


Students will now be going on to take up places at university. April Egan has achieved fantastic results and secured a place to study English at Cambridge University. Sam Muncer is off to study Psychology at University of Nottingham. Charlie Ashley is going to study Mathematical Physics at University of Southampton. Ben Thompson will be taking up a place at Ballet Theatre UK to study for a degree in Ballet performance.


In the vocational arena, students also achieved some impressive outcomes. Tom Brunton is a keen sportsman and has the qualities of a great leader and team player in abundance. He has worked hard to achieve triple Distinction* in Sport and a B in EPQ. Tom is taking a gap year before he heads off to university. We are confident that he will inspire and support others to share his passion for sports.


A number students did remarkably well, securing A*s and A grades in all of their subjects:


  • April Eagan - A* English Literature, A* Sociology, A* History, A EPQ

  • Beth Parkinson - A* English Literature, A in History and Psychology

  • Sam Muncer - A* in Sociology, A in Psychology, A in History

  • Tom Brunton - Triple Distinction* in Sport and B in the EPQ

  • Charlie Ashley - A* Maths, A* Physics and an A in computer science

  • Ben Thompson - A* in dance, A in Theatre Studies and B in English literature


Joy Ballard said:

“Congratulations to all of our students on their fantastic results. They should be rightly proud of these grades, which they have worked so very hard for. Our students have responded to the challenges of the past few months, with determination, compassion and patience. Whether they are going onto university, high-quality vocational courses, or employment, I am confident that they will continue to make us proud.”


David Hatchett, National Director of Secondary Schools at AET said:

“Today’s A level and vocational results are testament to the hard work and resilience of students over what has been a challenging and disruptive two years. I congratulate each and every one of them, and pay tribute to our teachers who have helped make this possible, and ensured that our young people can progress onto the next stage of their lives successfully.”
