SWCHS Results Day - 13th August 2020
Millie Wolter is celebrating achieving 4 A*s. She will take up her place at Oxford to study English Literature. Jessica Hancock said that she was "absolutely ecstatic" with her 4 A*s. She will study PPE at Oxford next year. Sophie Griffiths, who also received 4 A*s and has a place at York to study English, said, "I am glad that, despite the disruptive year, I have managed to get to where I wanted to go." William Oliver was awarded 3 A*s and will go on to study Medicine at Oxford. Jack Sutton was delighted with his Distinction* in Business and is currently applying for an apprenticeship. Louise Barker, who was awarded a double distinction* in Art and is going to Manchester Metropolitan to study Art History with Fine Art, said, "I am so grateful to my teachers for all the support they have given me throughout my 7 years at SWCHS." Celebrations started early this morning for Emily Hanlon and James Goodwin, who each received 3A*s and an A: before they go to Warwick University to study Maths, they are busy working at Chesterford Research Park assembling Covid testing kits.
Headteacher Polly Lankester said, "The class of 2020 were a fantastic cohort and it has been a pleasure to work with them. We are delighted that, after all they have been through, the vast majority of our students have been awarded the impressive grades that they fully deserve and they are able to progress to their first-choice courses and apprenticeships. Like all schools in the country, we know that a number of students would have had different results had they been able to sit their final exams and we had evidence to suggest that many could have achieved even better grades than the already impressive ones they have been awarded. We are extremely proud of all of our students and would like to thank them all for their contribution to life at County High across the last two years. We wish them all well with their next steps and look forward to hearing from them."
