Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School

Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School students are celebrating another year of well- deserved results. With an overall pass rate of over 96% and 27% of grades at A*/ A and 51% at A*-B, head teacher Debra Liddicoat said: “Despite the very unusual circumstances this year, which were both difficult and challenging for students; the grades awarded are recognition that our students worked incredibly hard up to the moment school closed its door in March and they should be rightly proud of themselves and now focus on progression to the next stage of their life.

“The vast majority of students are intending to go on to the best universities. I would also like to recognise the hard work and dedication of the staff in supporting students through their studies for the past two years.”

Hartsdown Academy Margate

IB results received in July and now confirmed

Sixth Form students at Hartsdown Academy are celebrating their Level 3 vocational results today, with students having made even greater progress than last year where the school won a national award from the SSAT for outstanding progress in the Sixth Form.

On the back of this most challenging year for Year 13 students there were 100% pass rates in both Performing Arts and Health and Social Care. Individual successes include:

Charlie Bewick and Chloe Harvey with a Distinction Merit in Health and Social Care

Georgia Palmer with a Distinction* Distinction in Health and Social Care, plus the IBCP award including passes in English and Psychology.

Charlie Humphreys with a Double Merit in Sports Science, plus the IBCP award including Grade 5 in English and Psychology.

The results, coupled with the IB results that students received in July, mean students heading to university have secured their first choice places, with other students heading into employment or securing apprenticeships in fields such plumbing and forensic healthcare.

Head teacher Matt Tate said: “What our Sixth Form students have achieved would be outstanding in any normal school year – the fact they have been so successful in the face of coronavirus mark them and their results as something truly special.

“The whole school is extremely proud of them, and I am sure that their tenacity and brilliance to achieve so well in such difficult circumstances will ensure their continued success in the exciting places and opportunities they have secured for themselves.”
