Exam Results - Message from Dr Morrison, Headteacher

 

 

We would like to congratulate all our students who have received GCSE, A-Level, vocational, BTEC and Cambridge Technical results this summer.

After the uncertainty of the last couple of years, our students will be celebrating some fantastic grades that reward their resilience, ambition, and hard work.


Achieving these results has been a superb team effort. As our Headteacher, Andrew Morrison, commented:
“I am absolutely delighted at the results our students have achieved. Their focus and commitment since returning from various lockdowns has been notable and I am pleased that students' hard work has paid off. Their results are not an end point but a stepping-stone that enables them to progress to the next stage of their lives. However, these results have not simply been achieved by the students alone. Our young people have been ably supported by their families and Furze Platt Senior School staff. This support network has helped create the ambition, drive and positivity that has ensured our students are rewarded today and I would like to thank all members of our community who contributed to these achievements."


As much as the results themselves, we also congratulate students for the destinations these grades have helped them reach. We will welcome most of our Year 11 students back to Furze Platt Senior School Sixth Form in September and we look forward to seeing their continued success. For other students progressing to apprenticeships and colleges, we send them every best wish as they focus on new goals and ambitions.

We wish many of our A-Level students well as they take up places in the workforce in the UK and abroad, on apprenticeship courses or gap years and at universities this autumn. Our students are pursuing courses ranging from Natural Sciences to Theoretical Physics, Chemistry to Psychology, Mechanical Engineering to English Literature, Criminology to Human Geography, Ancient History to German, Fine Art to Law, Physiotherapy to Theatre and Performance Studies at universities across the country, including Oxbridge and Russell Group universities, as well as universities in the USA.

Wherever our students are progressing, we wish them every success in the future. Our Head of Sixth Form, Pete Ging, summed up our feelings: “We are really proud of what our students have achieved. Our Year 13 students have managed the return to formal examinations incredibly well and deserve huge congratulations. Through the support of the school and their families, I know our students will be progressing onto fantastic destinations and opportunities and should be very pleased with their accomplishments. I hope that they enjoy celebrating their superb and well-deserved results.”

Finally, we hope that students and their families continue to celebrate their achievements over the coming days and weeks. We trust that students enjoy their successes and the future opportunities that their grades will bring.

We send them every best wish as they pursue their futures either in Sixth Form or beyond Furze Platt Senior School.
