Gracious U-turn by Ofqual is the fairest approach for this year's leavers and their families.
We are proud of the hard work and commitment of our students and the members of staff who supported them during this exceptional year. Congratulations on your achievements.
In 2020 A Level and GCSE grades were awarded by the School following a lengthy and rigorous process. Heads of Department collated all relevant data for each pupil and consulted with class teachers before deciding on the most likely final grade. Senior staff moderated each Department’s projections cross-referencing against the progress of previous cohorts of Whitgift students. As a check, members of the Year Group Team who knew each of the students well, went through the list pupil by pupil to look for anomalies or inconsistencies. The grades awarded were in line with those achieved by previous cohorts of Whitgift pupils.
A summary of the 2020 results can be found in the table below.
Effort is placed not only on good exam grades but also producing boys who can think on their feet, have confidence, and solve problems. This is why a Whitgift education prepares them [students] for the outside world.
