GCSE: Deepings School welcomes results
The head teacher of The Deepings School welcomed this year’s set of GCSE results and said strategies put in place to improve the progress of students had worked.
“We are delighted that this set of results confirms that last year’s large gains were not a one-off and that the strategies that we have introduced to improve the progress of students at the Deepings School are sustainable," said Richard Lord.
"A huge amount of work and effort has gone into preparing for even more new style examinations this year and the manner in which students
and staff have approached this challenge has been truly admirable.
"I would like to extend my thanks to the staff for giving so freely of their time to go the extra mile to support our students.
"Praise, however, has to go to the students themselves for their fantastic efforts and the way in which they have handled being the first cohort to sit these new syllabuses and having coped with all the uncertainty that goes along with this.
"Furthermore, the support of parents and carers along the way has also been vital because we know that this makes a truly positive impact.
"We wish all of our students the very best for the next steps in their educational journey and, for the majority, that will mean returning to the Deepings Sixth Form Centre in September."
