It is important to note that Summer 2020 was like no other and there is a health warning when comparing to previous years examination results. On 18th March 2020, the Government announced the cancellation of all GCSE and other examinations for 2019/2020 academic year and used a teacher assessed approach – Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs). The school was in a strong position to support teachers across all subjects and was able to present staff with a rigorous and robust process to making their teacher assessments in a manner that reflected the efforts of our students.
The 2020 Exam Grades awarded by the Exam Boards are the higher of the Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) submitted by Penair and a calculated exam board grade. 2020 Exam Grades are not directly comparable with previous years and should be treated with caution.
On GCSE results day Headteacher James Davidson said: “I would like to congratulate all Penair students on their GCSE grades this year. Students have worked extremely hard and their grades are a tribute to their commitment and hard work. I would like to thank their teachers and other staff who have taught and supported students so effectively, and also parents who have nurtured and encouraged students throughout their time at school.”
