Wycombe High School celebrates GCSE success

Wycombe High School is pleased to report outstanding achievements by our students in their GCSE results this summer.

This year, following the cancellation of GCSE exams nationally, grades were awarded through a process of school assessed grades, determined against a national standard and approved and awarded by the national exam boards.

Headteacher, Sharon Cromie said: “Wycombe High School has an internal system of ongoing and common assessments across every subject, department, and teacher, which was used to internally examine every student on every aspect of their GCSE subjects. Our students also sat the Exam Body mini examinations introduced by the government in May. This means our students’ excellent GCSE grades are based on extensive and robust evidence and are the best possible foundation for our Sixth Form”.

“Our students have looked beyond the pandemic, chased excellence, relished the challenge and achieved the grades they deserve. They have attended school, either virtually or in person, throughout this pandemic, always giving their best. They are very well placed to achieve highly in our Sixth Form and we are very much looking forward to welcoming them back in September, when we have exciting things planned for them”.

“I am full of admiration for our students and sincerely grateful to the staff at Wycombe High School who, along with our parents, have unwaveringly supported these young people. Today’s excellent results show what can be achieved via an ambitious and strong student, parent, school partnership, even in a pandemic. In the face of adversity, great things have emerged”.      

The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
