A-level results 2021: Students at The Minster School, Southwell, flourish in unprecedented times
The headteacher at The Minster School said students had secured a great set of A-level results.
Headteacher of the Southwell school, Ben Chaloner, said: “Students across the country are receiving grades that they should be proud of and it reflects the hard work that they have put in throughout their studies.
"Over the past 18 months I have been extremely proud of each and every sixth form student here at The Minster School.
"I have witnessed how they have risen to the challenges laid before them and have succeeded in securing a great set of results.
"Students have shown resilience, dedication, strength of character and the importance of hard work and now they look forward to their next stages of employment, education and training.
"I would like to extend my congratulations to the whole of The Minster School community – parents and staff – and thank them for the key role that they have played in every individual success.
"I wish all of year 13 best wishes for the future.”
Students had the majority of their sixth form experience disrupted by the covid-19 pandemic.
Schools were closed in spring 2020 and winter 2021 meaning that as a minimum students spent six months learning from home.
With the formal exam series cancelled, students were awarded grades based on a process involving teacher assessment against national standards, internal quality assurance, and external quality assurance by the exam boards.
