GCSE Results

Amery Hill Exam Results 2020
Statement from the Headteacher

In such turbulent and unprecedented times the 2020 GCSE results for students at Amery Hill School need to be celebrated as the culmination of many years of resilience, tenacity and unwavering determination. 

The disappointment felt by many at not being able to end their school days by way of formal examinations, leavers church service and prom, should not deflect from the many successes and experiences our students have achieved while studying as Amery Hill.

While no two years are the same, the national data for 2020 and the very clear inflation of grades across all subjects nationally, due to schools having to calculate their own Centre Assessment Grades has understandably meant that some of our departments do not look on paper to be as successful as others.  However, a closer analysis will show that year on year Amery Hill School is consistently achieving exceptional results across all departments ensuring that students leave school with a range of qualifications to enter into Further Education.

As a school, the care and understanding we have for each one of our students has ensured that the Centre Assessment Grades calculated are an honest and detailed appraisal of what each student should have achieved if they had taken their formal examinations. 

It is therefore with great pride that all the staff and Governors wish to congratulate all our students on their results.  We wish them all every success for the future and look forward to a time where we can celebrate together as a community.
