Exam Results

GCSE 2020 Results

At Robert Barclay Academy, students and staff continue to rise to the challenge of the more demanding 9-1 GCSEs.  The percentage of students who attained a secure pass i.e. 9-4 in both English and Maths showed a further 5% increase on last year (up to 67%).  Since the school became an Academy, we have seen a 27% rise in the percentage of students attaining a 9-4 in both English and Maths. Other outstanding departmental successes included: GCSE Spanish (100% Grade 4 or higher), ICT (100% Grade 4 or higher), GCSE Photography (97% Grade 4 or higher), GCSE Media (90% grade 4 or higher) and Sport and PE (92% Grade 4 or higher).

Ced de la Croix, Headteacher, commented that “We are extremely proud of our students and their GCSE results are a testament to their hard work and those of their teachers and parents, particularly in this most difficult of years. It has certainly been an uncertain time recently for schools and more importantly for the examination students themselves. GCSE results aside, behind all the stats and grades we have lots of amazing students and some fantastic individual stories of talent and success’.

Of particular note of success were Harvey Durkin who achieved Grade 9s in English Language, English Literature, Maths, History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Spanish . Katherine Hindlaugh (pictured with mum) achieved Grade 9 in English Language, English Literature, Maths, Grade 8 in Spanish, History, Art, Physics, and Grade 7 in Chemistry and Biology. Angel O’Callaghan achieved a Grade 9 in English Literature, English Language, RE, Food Technology, Grade 8 in History, Drama, Grade 6 in Physics and Grade 5 in Chemistry, Biology and Maths.

The school are delighted with their A-Level results this year and are immensely proud of the achievements of all of their A-Level students. This year saw further improvements as the % total of A*-B grades rose from 37% to 50%.

The achievements allow our students to follow the path of their choice, whether that be into University, apprenticeships or other further training. Individual successes particularly of note included Max Dickson Jefford who gained an A* in History, A* in Financial Studies and a Grade A in Geography and Maths. Max has attended the University of Nottingham to study Accountancy. Daisy Dyson achieved an A* in English Literature, A in Media and an A grade in Drama and is now attending Royal Holloway to read English Literature and Creative Writing. Lucrezia Sanzeri achieved Grades A, B, B and is off to Goldsmith University to study Media and Communication.

Headteacher, Ced de la Croix, said: “After so much suffering during lockdown, it has been immensely gratifying this morning to see our Year 13 students receive very pleasing results despite the stressful and difficult process this year that was put in place to award them their grades.”

New Head of Sixth Form, Kevin White, said: “This is no more than these students deserve. Had the exams taken place, we were fully expecting this year group to achieve well.”
