In another year disrupted by the pandemic our students have shown fortitude and excellence in earning brilliant results.
Out of 67 A-Level students in total:
- 33% A*
- 65% A*-A
- 87% A*-B
- 95% A*-C
- Most common grade was A*, followed by A.
- Ten pupils scored straight A* grades (out of 67 in the year)
- 39% of the year group scored straight A grades. (26/67)
Miss Norman said: “I am delighted by the exceptionally high standards of our Year 13 students and remain incredibly proud of them. These excellent A level results, although gained in unusual and difficult circumstances, remain the result of two years’ hard work and commitment alongside our internal controlled assessments. I commend our students for their resilience and positivity throughout this period alongside the dedication of our teachers and the support of our parent body. In common with their year group across the UK, our students have been through so much and, although I would have wished for a different experience for these young people, they can move forward confident in the knowledge that they have displayed tenacity and courage in the face of adversity. I look forward to hearing from our students as they become Old Woodbridgians and hearing of their future successes”.
The A level grades this year were awarded via a process of teacher assessment grades (TAGs). Schools approached this differently; at Woodbridge, pupils were given a series of significant assessments in March and May as an opportunity to show the standard at which they were able to perform in their subjects. Pupils have worked exceptionally hard to achieve some very impressive results. These grades should not be directly compared with previous years, as they are assessed differently. The combination of major assessments at two points in the year, along with the teacher’s holistic judgment has allowed the school to capture the best of our pupils’ abilities, and they are fully deserving of this outstanding set of results.
