An exceptional year group, that’s the verdict of Uckfield College principal Hugh Hennebry about students following the publication of A-Level and BTEC results.
But, says deputy principal Sara Marshallsay, some of the grades awarded to students using the Government’s statistical model were lower than the college was sure they would have achieved had they had the opportunity to take their exams.
She said: “We will follow the appeals process fully, and do whatever we can to support these students so that they an take the next steps in their lives.
Mr Hennebry said the year group worked extremely hard throughout their Sixth Form courses.
“This year group had all the ingredients of success: curiosity, intellectual interest, genuine interest in the subjects they studied, a conscientious approach, resilience and determination to do their very best.
“We are so very proud of them all and who they have become in their time at Uckfield College. We wish each individual every happiness and success for the future.
“In these uncertain times, Uckfield Sixth Formers have demonstrated that they have the right knowledge, skills, wisdom, and character to play a really positive and important role in our future world. Good luck.”
Sam Alvarez, acting head of Sixth Form said: “There are so many individual achievements where a student worked hard and did their personal best. We should also recognise those students who achieved the very highest grades.”
