Students at Landau Forte College Derby again received outstanding GCSE results, having faced months away from school, a period that they never could have imagined would see their last year at school curtailed and their exams cancelled.
But their hard work in the run up to lockdown hasn’t been for nothing. Following the Government’s announcement on Monday 17 August, the grades that teachers submitted for each student have now been awarded. They have received grades which reflect the effort they put in over the course of their time in education, as judged by their teachers.
Staff and teachers at Landau Forte College Derby have worked extremely hard to make sure that the grading for every student is fair and allows these students to go onto further education, employment or training – whatever is the best option for them.
Alison Brannick, Principal at Landau Forte College Derby, said:
“We have loved celebrating with our GCSE students and seeing how happy they are with their results. They have worked so hard during their time at Landau Forte College Derby and they thoroughly deserve all the successes they are seeing today.
“It is a shame that this cohort did not have the opportunity to show what they could do in their final examinations, but it is so important to celebrate the results they have achieved. The grades they received today thoroughly reflect the work they have put in during their time at school, and we are so proud of them.”
