GCSE News - Summer 2021 Results

Thursday 12th August 2021 - GCSE Results at Guildford County School

Today we are celebrating the hard work, dedication and impressive achievements of our GCSE students here at Guildford County School.  Our deepest thanks go to the Exams team for making sure that the morning ran so smoothly and also to the Sixth Form team for ensuring that enrolment to our hugely successful Sixth Form was slick and efficient.  We would also like to thank the many other staff who attended earlier on today to help with the distribution of results and to offer their congratulations and support to the students themselves.

Whilst Year 11’s studies this year were significantly disrupted by the pandemic, not least when it was announced that GCSE exams this summer were to be cancelled, we want to celebrate very sincerely the culmination of 5 years’ hard work by each and every student since they joined the County family in Year 7.  The lack of public exams this year was a challenge for everyone, but we do feel that we were able to give a ‘real’ experience to all of our students by hosting our own, internal exams series, which, as with A level, formed a key part of our assessment process this year.

Whilst our students did not get a chance to show what they would have achieved in formal GCSE exams, there has been a complex process to allocate a ‘Teacher Assessed Grade’ (TAG) for each student in each subject. It is important today that we do not let any discussion of this process overshadow the huge amount that has been achieved by every single student over a great number of years. It is important that they can move on to the next stage in their education with the sense of achievement and recognition that they all so rightly deserve.

As with the summer exams of 2020, the DfE are not compiling or publishing any school performance figures this year. In keeping with this, many schools, including us here at County, will not at this stage be publishing school level performance figures for this summer for GCSE. We are, however, delighted to be able to share with you some individual stories of success.

Deserving of special mention are Daisy, Madeleine, Ella, Ellie, Josh and Joseph who have all achieved outstanding individual results.  We are also tremendously proud of James, Ruby, Lili and Leonie who topped the value-added charts, achieving well above their individual target grades. 

Steve Smith, Headteacher of Guildford County School, comments that, ‘today represents the end of one phase of each student's education and is a terrific opportunity to recognise and celebrate what they have all achieved. We are delighted to be able to congratulate the Year 11 Class of 2021 for their fantastic results and also to wish them well as they move on to the next phase of their lives with our full support and our very best wishes for the future. For most, this will be here at Guildford County Sixth Form and we cannot wait to welcome them and a large number of external recruits, through the doors in September.  External students still unsure of where to go next should get in touch with our Director of Sixth Form, Helen Nurton (hnurton@guildfordcounty.co.uk) to find out more about joining the County community.’ 

A Level News - Summer 2021 Results

Tuesday 10th August 2021 - A Level Results at Guildford County School 

Today we are celebrating the hard work and successes of our Sixth Form students here at Guildford County School. Our sincere thanks go to the Sixth Form and Exams teams for making sure that the preparation for today and the results distribution morning itself ran so smoothly and also to the many other staff who attended earlier on to help with the delivery of results and to offer their congratulations and support to the students themselves. Whilst the studies and preparation for the culmination of Year 13 were not the same as in most years, due to the cancellation of public exams, we do feel that we were able to give a ‘real’ experience to all of our students by hosting our own, internal exams series as a part of our assessment process this year. We want to celebrate the many achievements of each and every student leaving us today; over the course of the 7 years that they have been with us, their footsteps have left a permanent and positive mark in the history of our school. 

Whilst our students did not get a chance to show what they would have achieved in formal A Level exams, there has been a complex process to allocate a ‘Teacher Assessed Grade’ (TAG) for each student in each subject. It is important now that we do not let any discussion of this process overshadow the huge amount that has been achieved by every single student over a great number of years. It is important that they can move on to the next stage in their education with the sense of achievement and recognition that they all so rightly deserve.

As with the summer exams of 2020, the DfE are not compiling or publishing any school performance figures this year. In keeping with this, many schools, including us here at County, will not at this stage be publishing school level performance figures for this summer. We are, however, delighted to be able to share with you some individual stories of success.

Two County students Rachel and Emily have secured places at Cambridge University.  Rachel will study Natural Sciences, and Emily begins her career as a doctor, studying Medicine.  We are also tremendously proud of Chloe who has secured a place at the University of Bristol to study Veterinary Science and Charlie who will be studying Music at the Royal College of Music in London.  Special mention goes to Shannon who has overcome many personal challenges throughout her school journey to shine in her Sixth Form studies, securing a place on a Business Management degree course; to Olivia who is the first in her family to attend University and has flourished in her A Level studies; and to Millena who arrived in the County family with English as her second language – she has shown exceptional tenacity and dedication to secure a place studying Marketing, also the first in her family to attend University.  At the time of writing, 90% of all of our departing students have secured places at Universities from Edinburgh to Bournemouth, Bath to Northampton, including 22 offers from prestigious Russell Group Universities.   

Steve Smith, Headteacher of Guildford County School, comments that, ‘today represents the end of one phase of each student's education and the opportunity to recognise and celebrate what they have achieved. We are delighted to be able to congratulate the Class of 2021 for their many achievements and also to wish them well as they move on to the next phase of their lives with our full support and our very best wishes for the future. I am hopeful that many will choose to become members of our ever growing alumni community and that we will then be able to continue to watch their successes over the years to come.’

GCSE News - Summer 2020 Results

Thursday 20th August 2020 - GCSE Result

Today we are celebrating the hard work and achievements of our GCSE students here at Guildford County School – my sincere thanks go to the exams teams for making sure that the morning ran so smoothly and also to the many other staff who attended to help with the distribution of results and to offer their congratulations and support to the students themselves.  Whilst their studies and preparation for the exams were abruptly halted by the lockdown at the end of March and the cancellation of the GCSE exams for this summer, we want to celebrate their many achievements over the course of the 5 years that they have been with us. 

Our students did not get a chance to show what they would have achieved in formal GCSE exams but instead, there has been a complex process to allocate a ‘Centre Assessment Grade’ (CAG) and a ranking for each student in each subject.  Over recent months, and continuing as we write this, there has been some debate and controversy in the media about the CAG process, but we must not allow this to distract us all from celebrating the hard work of our students over the last 5 years.  Indeed, we cannot allow our students to be defined by this most unusual of times. These students did not get the chance to have their Prom, so it is important that they see today as the chance to move on to the next stage in their education with the sense of achievement and recognition that they all so rightly deserve.  We are delighted that for so many of these students the next stage is here with us in the Sixth Form at Guildford County School – where we are still accepting applications from external students for a place on our courses from September 2020.  

Due to the way that results this year have been calculated, the DfE are not compiling or publishing any school performance figures and so in keeping with this, Surrey schools and others more widely will not be publishing school level performance figures for this summer.  

We are, however, delighted to be able to share with you some individual stories of success.  Deserving of special mention are Ada Kirczenow, Emma Robertson, Ella Brooks, Bethany Muir and James Tidbury who have all achieved outstanding individual results.  We are also tremendously proud of Nicolas Gruter, Marina Warchus, Chloe Carmichael Parsons, Kit Kethero and Demi Kun who topped the value-added charts, achieving well above their individual target grades.  

Steve Smith, Head of Guildford County School, comments that, ‘today represents the end of one phase of each student's education and the opportunity to recognise and celebrate what they have achieved.  The uncertainty over the grade allocation process has been unfair to our Year 11 and 13 students, but I am glad that the right decision has been made and that teacher judgements are now seen as the trusted means by which to allocate grades to students.  We are delighted to be able to congratulate the Class of 2020 for their many achievements and also to wish them well as they move on to the next phase of their lives with our full support, love and best wishes.’

A Level News - Summer 2020 Results

Thursday 13th August 2020 - A Level Results

Today we are celebrating the hard work and achievements of our students here at Guildford County School – my sincere thanks go to the Sixth Form and Exams teams for making sure that the morning ran so smoothly and also to the many other staff who attended to help with the distribution of results and to offer their congratulations and support to the students themselves.  Whilst their studies and preparation for the exams were abruptly halted by the lockdown at the end of March and the cancellation of the A Level exams for this summer, we want to celebrate their many achievements over the course of the 7 years that they have been with us.  

Our students did not get a chance to show what they would have achieved in formal A Level exams but instead, there has been a complex process to allocate a ‘Centre Assessment Grade’ (CAG) and a ranking for each student in each subject.  Over recent months, and continuing as we write this, there has been some debate and controversy in the media about the CAG process, but we must not allow this to distract us all from celebrating the hard work of our students over a great number of years.  Indeed, we cannot allow our students to be defined by this most unusual of times.  These students did not get the chance to have the usual leavers' events, so it is important that they can move on to the next stage in their education with the sense of achievement and recognition that they all so rightly deserve.

The A Level results this year have been allocated according to a standardisation model which uses the results of previous years, rather than being a reflection of the standards in the school in the academic year 2019-20.  As a result, the DfE are not compiling or publishing any school performance figures and so in keeping with this, Surrey schools and others more widely will not be publishing school level performance figures for this summer.  

We are, however, delighted to be able to share with you some individual stories of success.  Three County students, Bethan, Rebecca and Jamie have secured places at Oxford University. We are also tremendously proud of Cameron who has secured a place at the Royal Academy of Music and Ellie and Leah who are the first of their families to go to University.

At the time of writing this, all of our students who have applied to University have secured places at prestigious Universities across the country including Russell Group Universities.

Steve Smith, Head of Guildford County School, comments that, ‘today represents the end of one phase of each student's education and the opportunity to recognise and celebrate what they have achieved.  We are delighted to be able to congratulate the Class of 2020 for their many achievements and also to wish them well as they move on to the next phase of their lives with our full support and best wishes.’
