GCSE results day 2020: 'Strong performance testament to hard work of everyone at Weston Favell Academy'
Principal: 'These grades are the result of years of excellent teaching and learning, dedication and resilience and are very well deserved'
Weston Favell Academy's strong GCSE results are a testament to the hard work of students, staff and parents, according to the principal.
Pupils at the Booth Lane South school collected their grades, which were decided by teachers after exams were cancelled because of Covid-19, today (Thursday, August 20).
However, some students will still be waiting for final grades as the awarding bodies for BTECs and Cambridge Nationals take more time to adjust their calculations.
Principal Lorna Leventhal said: “I could not be prouder of our year 11 pupils at Weston Favell Academy.
"These grades are the result of years of excellent teaching and learning, dedication and resilience and are very well deserved.
“As an academy, we are passionate about providing the best possible education and empowering our pupils to fulfil their potential, and these results not only demonstrate the impact of this ethos but are a testament to the hard work of our pupils, staff and parents.
“I am excited for our pupils to move on to the next stage of their lives and look forward to welcoming back those who will be joining our sixth form at Weston Favell Academy from September.”
