Examination Results

All students in Years 10 and 11 follow courses leading to public examinations for the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) and a range of other courses. Most students take examinations in nine subjects. Sixth Form students usually study either 3 or 4 subjects at A Level or BTEC.

The school is always pleased to discuss results overall or in any specific area(s). Enquiries should be addressed in the first instance to Mr Birkett, Headteacher.

I would like to begin by congratulating all of our Year 13 students for their hard work and

every success in their chosen course of education or employment.

Year 13 cohort. They have coped with circumstances no-one could ever have envisaged with
positivity and stoicism. Despite the disruption to this year, like every Year group before them, our
Year 13 students have earned their grades and achievements and I am certain that they will go on to
achieve great things in their future careers and lives.

GCSE Results Day at Wollaston School


The government and Ofqual change of approach was announced in time to enable us to distribute the correct official exam board qualification grades this morning. These are the highest of the Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) or the Ofqual calculated grades.

I would like to wish all of our Year 11 students many congratulations on their successes and well- deserved grades. Although most students would have preferred to sit their exams, we recognise that they have worked incredibly hard over a number of years to achieve these qualifications and the national controversy must never overshadow that.

I would also like to thank all of our Year 11 students for their role as such positive members of our school community during their time with us and we wish them all every success in their chosen course of study next year.

Of course, most of our year 11 students will return to our sixth form and we look forward to welcoming them back to begin their post 16 studies with us – in our new way of working in September.
