GCSE Results 2020

We are extremely proud of all of our students for displaying such maturity, resilience and fortitude during these unprecedented and uncertain times. Despite the fact that they were unable to show their knowledge and skills in their formal examinations this summer, the students deserve enormous credit and should feel proud of their academic achievements. As a cohort, the Class of 2020 achieved an excellent set of GCSE results following a robust and rigorous standardisation process. It is only right that we acknowledge and recognise the hard work, commitment and perseverance that were essential ingredients to their success.

The outcomes achieved do not happen by accident and are a testament to the dedication of the students as well as the excellent support and guidance provided by staff and parents/carers. The fact that the vast majority of de Stafford students leave with such positive outcomes is a reflection of the strong academic progress they have made in their time at the school. However, the year group contributed so much to the school community and we are just as proud of the way in which they have developed into highly aspirational and confident young adults, comfortable of their place in society and the positive contribution they can make to it.

The number of top grades awarded continues to be a strength of the school. Kiara Kielkiewicz is deserving of special mention as she gained straight 9s in all ten of the GCSE subjects that she was entered in; an incredible and highly unusual accomplishment. The following students also received a high proportion of the top grades; Tabitha Wren, Sam Vellacott, Erin Edun-Hughes, Josh Garnett, Morgan Joyce, Lucy Vella, Zach Jennings, Alana Trotter and Rebecca Frost.

Whilst rightly celebrating the fantastic achievements of the high attainers, the school was delighted with the progress made by all students from their different academic starting points on entry to the school in Year 7. The following students deserve special recognition for the outstanding progress they made during their time with us; Laura Naylor Burgess, Ben Morphew, Rhianna Hallett, Syd Fleet, Adwaith Kocheril Jomon, Bethan Allain, Thea Alsleben and Elizabeth Johnson.

We wish the students well as they move onto the next phase of their education with our full support and best wishes.

Jeremy Garner, Headteacher
