He said: “Despite the huge impact of the Covid pandemic on their sixth form experience, these results are the product of two years of incredible hard work and dedication despite everything that has been thrown at them and are, if anything, even more deserved than ever. 

“At all key levels our A-level and vocational results were marginally higher than in previous years, however this year should be a year to admire the tenacity of our brilliant students in the face of such adversity rather than to engage in an unhelpful debate around grade comparison and inflation that does them such a disservice.”

Grades have been awarded based on procedures established by individual schools this year – taking into account the impact of the pandemic on students’ learning.  

Three students from Gordano School secured places at Oxford University, while others have highly-prized apprenticeships and training offers.
