CFS are Celebrating Another Year of Hard Earned and Highly Successful GCSE Results!

Year 11 students at CFS received their GCSE results today. What they found inside their result envelopes was a record of the amazing achievements that have been several years in the making. Whilst normal exams may not have happened this year, this cohort of young people navigated two lockdowns, a variety of Covid restrictions including further periods of isolation, and an exceptionally intense and rigorous assessment period in order to gain these results.  

There were huge celebrations today, as all that hard work, resilience, patience and resolve had finally paid off. Principal, Mrs New, said, ‘Once again I am astounded by the courage and perseverance of these young people. Despite everything that was thrown at them over the last two years, they have all continued to work hard, never giving up. Perhaps even more impressively, this was always with a smile! I am so proud of them and the results they have received today, results they have truly earnt.’ 

Head of Year, Mrs Tulley, added, ‘This is an exceptionally kind, friendly, united and mature group of young people and I wish them every success on their next steps, which I am so proud they are able to take due to these great results today. We will miss them at CFS, and I am privileged to have been their Head of Year.’ 

There were fantastic performances throughout the year group, including Robert Moore with six Grade 9s, three Grade 8s and a Grade 6. Robert is planning to go to Kimbolton School to study A Levels. Ella Sanders achieved five Grade 9s, four Grade 8s, a Grade 7 and a Grade 6.  A whole host of Grade 8s and 9s were also awarded to Toby Alford, Brendan Bailey, Lily Butten and Callum Croft. 

The School were also celebrating fantastic personal achievements today, students who have made great progress during their time at the School. Particularly successes were achieved by Lucas Hutton and Reuben Livesey Austin.
