We are so proud of our GCSE students this year. Their approach to their education has been first class throughout their time at the school and we are delighted that this has been recognised through their GCSE results. They are an impressive group of young people who have demonstrated such determination and endeavour, and should all be proud of all they have achieved.
Special mention should be made of Max Booth, Olivia Flanagan, Katherine Hogg, Theo Jones, Alice Kemp, Madeleine Lascelles, Chloe Pickering, Amanda Platt, Tarun Ravi, Yasmeen Soliman, Matthew Spendlove, Jack Wetton and Lucy Wood who achieved grade 7 or above in each of their GCSEs. Whilst Ella Allen-James, Matthew Bowes, Ethan Coldron, Zara Gotts, Sophie Hopwood, Louis Jones, Anton Kiss, Katie Morely, Pranav Pothula, Hanza Rajput, Esme Rowlands, Aaron Smith achieved the same amazing standard in all but one of their subjects.
We are particularly proud and impressed to see so many of our students achieving at such an exceptionally high standard and it goes without saying that we are looking forward to welcoming many of them back to the Sixth Form in September.
We are particularly proud of our A level students this year. They have worked incredibly hard throughout their time in the Sixth Form and have prepared themselves fully for the next stage in their education or chosen career. They are without doubt an impressive group of young people who have navigated their way through recent months, and the associated disruption and uncertainty, with unbelievable maturity and resilience.
Particularly impressive were the results of Niamh Bradshaw, Henry Burgess, James Clay, Holly Newton, Emily Smith and Adam Waters who achieved A* in each of their A level subjects. They are in very good company as George Avison, Viv Bone, Aaron Cook, Yousef Ghanmi, Yusof Hassan, Charlotte Hopwood, Bahar Icboyun, Ryan McFahn, Ella Pearson, David Scott, Caitlin Soroka, Hope Sidebottom, Alice Verdon, Oliver Ward and Isobel Williams also secured excellence across the board gaining As or A*s in each of their A level subjects.
The overwhelming majority of our students have secured their preferred university place or been accepted on apprenticeship or training schemes. They have done so well under particularly challenging and difficult circumstances, and we applaud their achievements; they are fine ambassadors for QEGS and we will miss them in September as they head off for pastures new.
We are really looking forward to welcoming all students into school in September, and have undertaken significant planning and preparation to ensure that school will operate at safely and smoothly as possible.
Of course, our plans are subject to change as a result of changes to the guidance we receive from the Department for Education.

We are delighted to introduce a virtual version of the QEGS post-18 options information event. This year we have gathered expertise from QEGS staff and alumni as well as national organisations and universities to bring to you virtually. The purpose of this event is to outline the various options for students after completing their A Levels and to highlight the wealth of support available in school. We will be sharing several video presentations over the course of the week, you can find more detail about the content below. A new video will be shared daily, and this will be emailed to you, as well as being available on the QEGS website.
Year 12 students have already benefited from much of this information already through their enrichment lessons in school, so these video presentations are primarily aimed at parents, although students are strongly encouraged to participate as well.
