A Level Results Day 2021
Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School is celebrating outstanding achievements by its students in their A level examinations this summer. The students are going on to further study and training at a range of top universities and businesses.
A big well done, for example, to Mohammed al-Hussein, Luke Barrios, William Jackson, Daniel Lee, Ben Leighton, Dileep Sohal and Ewan Williams, who all attained 4 A* grades.
Also a huge congratulations to Alys Mortimer, History and French; William Jackson, Medicine; Liam Wragg, Medicine; Isabel Neate, Modern and Medieval Languages, who are all taking up places at at Cambridge University and Omar Ahmed, Engineering; Harry Graves, Engineering; Fintan Brennan, History; James Keeling, Politics, Philosophy and Economics; Kate Manuel, Psychology, who will progress to study at Oxford University.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher-assessed grades, against a national standard. These grades were quality assured and approved by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
Dominic Robson, Headteacher of Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School, said: “We are immensely proud of all the hard work and achievements of our students, especially after such an unprecedentedly difficult and disrupted year. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress onto further education and training.
It is to the credit of our students that they have shown such impressive levels of maturity and good humour, playing an active role in the life of the school community throughout their time with us, whether that be as leaders and mentors or through charity work, or their contributions to Vesey sport, music and drama. We look forward to keeping in touch with all our leaving Veseyans and finding out what they will achieve in the future.”
