Results Day 2020

We will be hosting GCSE Results Day for students only on Thursday 20th August 2020, however we will have to put into place some changes to ensure everyone’s continued safety.

We would like to invite students onto site at staggered times depending on their surname. The schedule for this can be found below.

0930 - 0945 Students whose surname begins with A-E
0945 - 1000 Students whose surname begins with F-J
1000 - 1015 Students whose surname begins with K-N
1015 - 1030 Students whose surname begins with O-R
1030 - 1045 Students whose surname behind with S-Z

Please note that in order to minimise the risk to staff and students, the only staff available will be members of the SLT. Teaching staff have been asked to not attend.

We have also arranged for Jess Hill, who is the Higher Education Liaison Officer for Swindon to be on hand for students who wish to discuss their next steps and future options on the day.

Students should arrive during their allocated time slot and should enter through the front gate of the school and onto the front field to collect their results. Parents are asked to remain in their cars if they are dropping off students.

Results will also be released to students through Edulink from 11AM on Thursday 20th August, and will be available until Sunday 23rd August. Parents can have access to the results through their logins from Friday 21st August until Sunday 23rd August. Details will be sent out nearer the time to inform you how these can be accessed.

If any student is unable to attend, then their results slip will be placed in the main school reception for collection from Monday 24th August. Students must bring a photographic ID with them in order to collect their results.

Details of how results have been awarded this year, can be found here.

Examination Results 2019

Cohort 2019 celebrated a very strong set of historic GCSE results – results that are transformational.  The overall Progress 8 score for the school, which compares students KS2 achievement with their GCSE outcomes shows that as a school we are just above the national average (score was +0.02), and significantly above the average for schools in the town (-0.07).

As well as progress, this year’s results were strong on the combined English and Maths measure with 60% of students achieving a 4 or above in both subjects.  At Grade 5+, a strong pass, 39% of students achieved at least a grade 5 in both English and Maths.  Department results across the school showed significant improvements.  Again, these results were a significant increase on last years.  As well as the overall results, we are particularly thrilled with many individual student achievements.

These results show a significant movement from last year, where this year’s students performed on average half a grade better than last year’s students when compared to students nationally. This change has been as a result of our strong leadership resulting in high expectations of all, improved curriculum, teaching and learning and constant championing each and every one of students.

“Transformational!”Paul James, CEO of The River Learning Trust

“We are absolutely delighted to see such a strong set of GCSEs today for our students.  These results reflect all their considerable efforts, pride and ambition over the past two years.  These achievements are well-deserved and will provide our students with firm foundations and open doors to their future ambitions.”

“I would also like to give a special mention to our whole staff team who worked tirelessly to champion and ensure that each and every student was able to achieve their very best.  These results would not have been possible without their support and expert guidance.  I would also like to thank all our parents for their continued support”Emma Leigh-Bennett, Headteacher of Kingsdown School
