Jubilation mixed with relief as students received their ‘A’ level results today. After a summer of national disruption and uncertainty, Beaumont’s Class of 2020 has been awarded grades which have enabled a very high number of students to achieve places at their choice of universities. Mr Atkinson commented, ‘I am delighted that the hard work of the students and their teachers has been recognised in this way. As a school, we took great care to ensure that the process for submitting Centre Assessed Grades was rigorous, evidence-based and fair and the exam boards have validated our judgements. Our students are leaving equipped with skills for life-long learning and qualifications they can trust, with at least eight of them gaining places on prestigious university courses in Dentistry and Medicine, which is a record for the school’.
