Wisbech Grammar School GCSE pupils celebrate excellent results and show they are a 'year group that does'
There was a real cause for celebration at Wisbech Grammar School on Thursday for the ‘year group that does’.
Speaking after the GCSE results were announced headmaster Chris Staley said: "This morning saw a real sense of relief, satisfaction and happiness after days of increased stress and anxiety following the publication of A 'level results last week and a sense of ‘how bad might it be’ for the GCSE results today.
"With the decision to accept Centrally Assessed Grades for pupils, derived from a huge amount of data collected from teaching staff as well as their innate understanding of the pupils they teach, has resulted in an overwhelming sense of certainty, justification, and joy for pupils, parents and teachers. So much of 2020 has been ‘unprecedented’ and the fact that today pupils have been awarded the grades they deserved has been a particular high point for me since schools were closed and lockdown began back in March.
