GCSE Results 2020
Public Examination Results for the King’s School, Canterbury: August, 2020.
The strong all round Fifths year group at King’s-and a talented intake from Schools across the realm who will be joining us at Canterbury this September-will be opening their GCSE results this morning. On the one hand, it will not be what they would have wished for-the results in black and white at the end of the hard slog of revision, past papers and then the summer exams. Nonetheless, I hope that they will strongly feel a sense of real satisfaction as they open the e-mails this morning: their well-deserved (high) grades reflect their commitment to the challenge of the courses over the last two years and the revision, past papers and momentum they were building up when we went into Lock Down in March.
Today’s GCSE results will give confidence to this talented cohort and represent a big tick in the box as they embark on the next stage of their King’s education through their chosen combination of ‘A’ Levels and Pre-Us.
I also wanted to thank the Academic Departments for their hard work and professionalism in operating the Centre Assessed system that the Government has adopted late in the day. This means that the smooth transition to the Sixth Form that I announce by this post is now better placed in the hands of the teachers who know these students. They are full of potential for the future, an exciting one that begins on September 8/9th.
