GCSE RESULTS 2020: Efforts praised by Iceni Academy at Methwold principal
The principal of the Iceni Academy at Methwold has praised the support of the wider school community as its students received their GCSE results.
The school has not released performance data, though it says students have been rewarded with “an excellent set of results.”
Principal Stephen Plume said: "I am absolutely delighted that our hard working young people have been rewarded with an excellent set of results at the end of such a challenging six months.
"At Iceni Academy we pride ourselves on helping young people develop their character and culture as well as getting great results.
"Over the past six months our students have certainly demonstrated that this is just as important as these results.
"Thank you to all of our hardworking staff, parents/ carers and our community.Your support has made all the difference."
Regional education director Susan Byles said: "I am delighted to see that all of the students at Iceni Academy have achieved grades which truly reflect their progress and hard work.
"The Centre Assessed Grades submitted by the academy to the examination boards went through a rigorous moderation and standardisation procedure not only within the academy but also across the eleven secondary academies in Academy Transformation Trust.
"As a result, we are confident that the grades achieved by all of our students accurately reflect the standards the students would have attained had they been able to sit the examinations under ‘normal’ circumstances.
"I would like to send my congratulations to all of the students receiving their GCSE results today at Iceni Academy and to express my appreciation of the staff who worked so hard to ensure the students achieved what they deserved to."
