The GCSE results are published this Thursday. This is the first year where the vast majority of exams follow the new 9-1 grading system. It has been shared widely on the news and social media that this change and the large increase in the number of exams students across the country have taken has further increased the pressure students feel themselves under.
We at Kingsmead recognise this and want to share now that we are proud of them all and how hard they have tried the last few years. We shadow our parents in wishing all our students good luck. We always have a large number of staff who will be on hand on Thursday. There will be the opportunity for students and parents to talk through results whether they are a pleasant surprise or not what was expected to plan their next steps and talk through options available.
