GCSE Results Summer 2020

This year, Foundry College has had one of its largest Year 11 cohorts to prepare for GCSEs and the next stage in their life’s journey. The students have been through the trauma of partial school closure, remote learning and social isolation…. It has been an unbelievably difficult year, far from ideal preparation for starting a new education or apprenticeship opportunity. All credit to the students for their perseverance and resilience during these final months of their education. Where many would have downed tools, our students rose to the challenge and continued with their learning and personal development to the end.

I am delighted to endorse that our students have been awarded their centre-assessed grades. These grades were derived through a rigorous and meticulous process involving a considerable amount of data and evidence. We believe that these individual outcomes are therefore fair and well-deserved.

We would like to congratulate all our students on their many and varied accomplishments, which of course extend well beyond academic success. We are proud of their commitment and wish them every success in the future.

I would also like to thank the staff for their relentless and creative support of our students: their learning, wellbeing and development, throughout their time at Foundry College and especially during the more recent challenges.

Ofsted commented;

“You care deeply about the pupils and are determined to make sure that your school provides the nurturing environment that they need.”

“Pupils are happy at your school, they say that there is always someone to talk to and that their views are valued. Parents and carers praise the improvements in their children’s behaviour and attitudes to learning.”

“You and your team are acutely aware of the importance of ensuring that every pupil is safeguarded from harm.”
