Headteacher, Karen Cornick, commented: “This has been an incredibly difficult period for young people, but our students should feel confident that these results reflect their talents and achievements at the end of Year 11.  They have all worked hard throughout the two years of their GCSE courses and every one of these superb grades reflects that commitment. I would like to thank staff in Patchway for their continued hard work, and in particular, our examinations team who have so successfully managed all the different processes this year.  Parent and carer support and encouragement has also been crucial in helping our young people reach these achievements today.  I congratulate all our students for such high outcomes and look forward to seeing many of them return to our sixth form in September!"

The achievements of our students have come as a direct result and reward of their continuous efforts, dedication and grit over the course of the last two years.  These results are a very accurate reflection of the academic strengths of our sixth form students.  I am exceptionally proud of these achievements, and the staff who have helped our students to realise their potential.
