“We are immensely proud of all the hard work and achievements of our students, especially after such an unprecedentedly difficult and disrupted year,”
– headteacher dominic robson
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher-assessed grades, against a national standard.
These grades were quality assured and approved by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
Dominic Robson, Headteacher of Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School, said: “We are immensely proud of all the hard work and achievements of our students, especially after such an unprecedentedly difficult and disrupted year. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress onto further education and training.
“It is to the credit of our students that they have shown such impressive levels of maturity and good humour, playing an active role in the life of the school community throughout their time with us, whether that be as leaders and mentors or through charity work, or their contributions to Vesey sport, music and drama.
“We look forward to keeping in touch with all our leaving Veseyans and finding out what they will achieve in the future.”
