An emotional A Level results day at Kimbolton School has seen 68.9 per cent of students awarded A* or A grades – with a 100 per cent pass rate.
This second year of replacement results after exams were cancelled has meant staff worked hard to adapt their teaching to the demands of the lockdowns.
They then delivered detailed attainment evidence to the exam boards in accordance with the system designed by Ofqual, overseen by JCQ.
The boards have today awarded Kimbolton students 68.9 per cent at A*/A, 87.6 per cent at A* to B with a 100 per cent pass rate.
There are 97 students in the year group.
Headmaster Jonathan Belbin, said: “Against a backdrop of a global pandemic which put students, parents and teachers under immense pressure - plus the ever-changing advice about the grading system to be deployed by schools - students across the country have had to show resilience, adaptability and flexibility on another level.
“This year’s public examination arrangements have placed unique demands on all schools and unsurprisingly have led to different grade profiles across the country.
