The impact of the pandemic on our communities has been profound, and during this time it has been a source of constant inspiration watching our young people thrive, despite everything going on around them.
“We should not underestimate the strength of character, courage and resilience they have shown to achieve the results they have and we should look forward with great excitement to the future that lies in front of them.
“I am incredibly proud of the students and staff at Hans Price. Staff have approached the grading process with integrity, rigour and consummate professionalism. Students have approached their assessments with determination, hard work and fortitude. As a result, they have truly earned their grades and we wish them well for the future.”
Following the cancellation of exams, grades were set by teachers against a national standard, and then approved and awarded by exam boards.
