After what has been a very frustrating period of time, and together with the uncertainty of the last few days, we are delighted that the students at Witchford Village College have been awarded the grades that they deserve, and that recognises all of the hard work they have put in over their entire school careers.
Individual student successes were many across all subjects, in particular Ben Stratford who achieved ten grade 9’s, Oscar Seymour with nine grade 9s, Jessica Lonnen with nine grade 9’s and two grade 8’s.
Zak Mappledoram the Head of Year 11 commented; “Students were overwhelming disappointed that their final year in the college was lost due to the virus and subsequent lock-down. We are therefore pleased that their final grades have recognised what we, as teachers firmly believed they would have achieved if they had sat their formal examinations earlier in the year.”
Mr Baxby the outgoing Principal said, “As a college we are immensely proud of our cohort who have managed the trials and tribulations of the year with determination and good spirit. They now embark upon the next exciting stage of their careers and as a whole staff body we wish them all our very best for the future.”
