A Levels - Summer 2021

We are delighted to celebrate the hard work and successes of our Class of 2021 who have achieved so much in very difficult circumstances. The students in this year group have had a Sixth Form experience like no other, yet they have demonstrated determination, resilience and commitment throughout their two years. Their motivation was particularly evident during remote learning and in the more recent months when students returned to school after the national lockdown. The Class of 2021 have not let the Covid-19 pandemic restrict them, instead the Class of 2021 have achieved great successes in spite of exceptional circumstances, and all have exciting futures ahead of them. Students have secured places to study at universities including: Oxford, Warwick and Southampton as well as apprenticeships including Mechanical Engineering with Ridge and Partners LLP, and with the NHS. We would also like to thank our teachers, leaders and support staff who have worked meticulously throughout the moderating processes prior to submitting results to the exam boards. We are proud of each and every one of our students and their achievements this year and would like to wish them every success in their next adventures.

GCSE Results - Summer 2021

Headteacher David Ramsden said: “I am delighted that students from the Class of 2021 have achieved the success that they so richly deserve. Right from the start, when they joined the school in Year 7, five years ago, they have been a hard-working and determined year group. In the past 18 months Year 11 have experienced a Key Stage 4 programme like no other, yet they have demonstrated resilience and commitment to achieve their very best throughout their GCSE courses. This was particularly evident in their approach to remote learning during the national lockdowns and when they returned to school in March. As a Year group they have showed tenacity and a determination to achieve their very best, under uniquely difficult circumstances, and the results today have demonstrated what a talented group they are."

A Levels - Summer 2020

It is with great delight that we celebrate the hard work, resilience and positive attitude of the class of 2020 who have achieved so much under such difficult circumstances. The students in this year group have been a real joy to work with for the past two years. They have approached everything they have done inside and outside the classroom - their academic studies and extra-curricular activities -   with great energy and enthusiasm. They have made a massive impact on the life of the school as a whole. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow into intelligent, confident young people who can cope with anything – even a pandemic in the last few months of their A Level courses. We are proud of them all and will, of course, miss them hugely but look forward to hearing about their future successes in the world beyond Little Heath.

We wish them every success in the future. All the students in the class of 2020 deserve praise for their achievements, however the following deserve special mention in the summer of 2020.
