Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School students are celebrating after receiving their A Level results.
With an overall pass rate of over 99% and 31% of grades at A*/ A and 58% at A*-B, head teacher Debra Liddicoat said: “Despite the very unusual and unprecedented circumstances over the last two academic years, which were both difficult and challenging for students, the grades awarded by teaching staff are a holistic judgement of our students’ achievements based on work sat both under examination conditions, high control in class and coursework.
“Students worked incredibly hard over two years of disrupted education 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, dedication and adaptability of staff; teaching and supporting students through their studies both online and face to face during the past two years.”

Congratulations to all. And wonderful to see so many going on to study medicine and other areas of health. Good luck – the NHS needs you!
Very well done to all students for attaining such grades in these difficult times. Good luck in your future careers.
If you did your best, then you can hold your head up high.
And for those of you who didn’t quite make the grade: you can catch up later with the likes of the Open University. I left school with 2 GCSEs … I’ve now got enough qualifications both academic and professional to wallpaper a living room.
