 The school is looking forward to hearing from the outgoing sixth formers as they head on to their next adventures, and to welcoming the rest of its students back in September.

Jane Bayley, Head of Sixth Form at SWB6th said:

‘’We are absolutely delighted to be able to congratulate all of our students today on their success after such a difficult year for our whole community. We are incredibly proud of how our students have handled the difficulties faced and we are pleased to see them on their way to their next steps in their lives. We look forward to hearing all about their time at university and employment through our Alumni network.”

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.
