GCSE ResultsPosted: 20th August 2020
Students have received results which are “richly deserved” at Royal Docks Academy.
Schools were forced to close to the majority of students in March due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
For GCSE students, it meant the summer exams they had been preparing for were cancelled.
Instead, their schools were tasked with producing recommendations for their grades, based on work they had already completed and ability they had proven in class, coursework and mock exams.
Today, the official results were released to Year 11 students, including those at Royal Docks.
Matt Carter, associate headteacher, said: “Although our Year 11 students were not able to sit exams as planned, these excellent results represent several years of learning and hard work from our young people.
“Royal Docks students have shown great commitment, drive and resilience throughout their courses, especially given the challenges presented in their final year. These results are richly deserved and we are extremely proud of our students.
I am also tremendously excited about the range of exciting destinations to which our students will now progress and we will ensure they receive the support needed to find their path.
“We look forward to seeing and hearing about their future successes.”
