A LEVEL, VOCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS & GCSE RESULTS
CLASS OF 2020
A level examination update
Everyone at Sacred Heart is delighted that a decision was taken on Monday evening to award either the grade resulting from the algorithm or the Centre Assessed Grade from school. This has resulted in many students now being able to approach their first-choice universities as their grades have been corrected. School is currently supporting students with this process.
We wish all our Year 13 leavers much happiness and success as they move onto the next phase of their lives.

GCSE Results 2020
This was always going to be a very high performing year group and we are delighted that the grades awarded reflect the ability, talent and very hard work of this excellent Year 11. Although grades have been decided differently to previous years, it is worth noting that, as usual, our girls have achieved a huge number of top grades, 37.1% of all GCSE grades awarded were 7-9.
Nationally this is 26%. 83% of our students passed their English and Maths GCSE.
We are delighted for our students, especially those who achieved a suite of grade 9s and 8s:
Due to the fact that BTEC awards have been delayed we are unable to congratulate so many of our students who will have fabulous success in their vocational qualifications. We look forward to congratulating them very soon.
We are immensely proud of all our students who have conducted themselves with great dignity and resilience in such a difficult year. At Sacred Heart we are ambitious for all our students and want them to have the very best opportunities for their future lives. These excellent results will open doors to the careers and the futures our students aspire to. We are particularly proud of their successes this year under such difficult circumstances. There is no doubt that this is down to a lot of hard work and great teaching. Our staff and governors congratulate all girls and wish them every success in their future lives.
