GCSE Results Day - 20th August 2020

SWCHS followed a robust and rigorous process to ensure that students’ grades reflected their performance and the grades received today are very well deserved.

Many students achieved outstanding results. 

Olivia Harris, Joshua Lucas, Ciara Hughes, Florence Wolter, Harriet Altaparmakova, Rosie Chen, Henry Huxter, Mphatso Moto (pictured above from left to right) all achieved an incredibly impressive 10 or more grade 9s at GCSE.

Hattie Altaparmakova said she was “absolutely ecstatic” with her results and Olivia Harris commented that “after all the uncertainty, I am so relieved to get the results that match the hard work I have put in”.  Henry Huxter said, “I am exceptionally proud of my Biology grade because of the progress I have made over the last year.”


Pippa Higham (right), who achieved an excellent set of results, was particularly proud as she has had to dedicate so much time to her dance training in preparation to begin her course at the prestigious Central School of Dance. Emily Mander (left) was also delighted with her fantastic results: “I am just so happy!  I’m buzzing”


 Tom Bonsor, Joe Gregory and Henry Phipps (from left to right) were all very proud of their final grades and the progress they have made over the last 5 years.  Tom said “I’m pretty chuffed with my results”

Headteacher Polly Lankester said, “Year 11 2020 were an excellent cohort of students and it has been a pleasure to work with them across the last 5 years.  They have shown such resilience and determination throughout this very difficult time and we are very proud of them all.  We wish all our students well with the next stage of their education and we are delighted that so many of them want to stay on to complete their 6th Form Studies with us.”
