Strong GCSE results were secured in a wide variety of subjects at Abbey College, in Ramsey, including English literature, maths, science, drama, geography and history.

As summer examinations were cancelled this year, students’ GCSE grades were awarded based on the higher of the Centre Assessment Grade or moderated grade determined by exam boards, this change in approach following a review by the Government earlier this week.

The college, which has secured consistently high grades in recent years, supports students through a range of targeted programmes focusing on core subjects. This additional support has had a positive impact according to the college’s headteacher Andy Christoforou, who praised the increased progress students are making across the school.

Mr Christoforou said: “I am immensely proud of all our students at Abbey College. As we know, with the incredibly difficult Covid-19 disruption this year, our students found themselves in very unusual and difficult circumstances. Despite this, they have achieved fantastic results through sheer determination, hard work and effort.”

“These grades reflect the significant amount of hard work and effort that each student has put into their studies. We are pleased that progress in key subjects continues to improve.”
