Over the lockdown period, Cowes Enterprise College continued to find different ways to keep students connected, including putting together an online creative showcase which exhibited the talents of students from across all year groups. As Year 13 prepare for the next chapter, the current Year 12s are looking forward to returning to the classroom in September.

Principal, Rachel Kitley, Cowes Enterprise College said:

“Without a doubt this has been a very unusual year for students, but that doesn’t take away from all the hard work they’ve put in over the past two years, including an impressive commitment to staying positive and engaged when working remotely. We’re very proud of what they have achieved, and I’m looking forward to hearing about the exciting next steps in their journeys.”

The grading process established by the Government this year involved schools assessing each of their students and awarding them the grades they considered they would have achieved, before all grades were moderated and confirmed nationwide by external exam boards.

The grades received were based on each student’s prior performance in each subject, taking into account their coursework, mock exam results and their overall attainment across the last few years, as well as the sixth form’s previous performance and the national performance in each subject. These grades were then assessed by external exams boards and final grades awarded.
