A Level results, 2021
On behalf of the CCHS School community, I would like to congratulate and celebrate all our amazing Year 13 students on their hard work and accomplishments during their A level studies. Alongside their academic achievements, this year group should also be commended for their maturity and fortitude, given the extraordinary situation following the Government’s announcement, in January, cancelling their public examinations.
There are so many uplifting stories of commitment and ability running through this year’s results. Each individual story is important and inspirational. Our students now follow in the footsteps of generations past at CCHS, as they set out to continue their studies, follow their dreams, share their brilliance with more people and contribute to making the world a better place.
As ever, we are proud of the great range of courses and opportunities that students will now be taking up. Our students continue to be successful in securing places at the most competitive universities and for some of the most competitive courses, with particularly large numbers opting to read Law, Medicine and Dentistry; however, we are also celebrating success in helping students move to study pure science, Engineering and other STEM subjects. Modern Languages and English Literature continue to be areas of great strength and increasing numbers of students have opted to pursue subjects such as Psychology, Anthropology and Neuroscience. We celebrate the successes of all our students in subjects as diverse as Music Technology, Philosophy and Sports Science.
There is no doubt that the successes at CCHS are the result of the diligence and ability of our students, who are cheered on by a tremendously supportive collective of parents, governors, our Parents’ Association and the CCHS Alumnae; as well as being taught and cared for by our talented teaching and support staff – all of whom deserve acknowledgement and thanks for their industry and professionalism.
2021 successes, which reflect a true community endeavour, are further evidence that we have made the right decision in pursuing an ambitious growth strategy, with more students joining CCHS and our campus development project. This September we will welcome another 180 students to Year 7. Our Year 13 students have rightly set a high standard with all that they have achieved, to help inspire the next generation of students, who will learn of their accomplishments from proud staff.
We wish our Year 13 students all the very best as they embark on their undergraduate studies and other adventures, and we look forward to staying in touch with them all as part of our thriving CCHS Alumnae network.
Mr S. Lawlor
