St Bede’s Celebrates Its GCSE Results 2020
It was a pleasure to see so many happy faces as the GCSE results were distributed. After the pressures of recent weeks, this talented cohort can look forward to beginning their A level studies having excelled in their examinations. Jessica N scored a perfect 11 grade 9s, despite having only been in the country for two years, in which she had to embrace new specifications and modes of study. Jessica will be studying Mathematics and the Sciences at A level. Anna V with a string of 9s and the occasional 8, will be courted by all departments no doubt, will study Mathematics and History, among others. Aoife also scored a majority of 9s with a similarly strong showing from Luke J, Isobelle C and Sam L.
Darko G with a 9 in PE and 8s in English and Mathematics will be leaving to pursue a career in football with his team mates, as will Max W, also with a string of high grades, whose departure for Bolton Wanderers ends a twenty-six year family relationship with the College. Savannah’s excellent results were the more commendable in a year when she was playing netball for England and tennis at international level. The same could be said of Karena V whose music commitments did not prevent her scoring mostly 9s and of Aidan Q, a middle-distance athlete, who balanced academic study with a punishing training schedule. In summary, a busy and superbly motivated year who deserve every success.
