Whilst GCSE results day marks the end of one journey is signifies the exciting beginning of another. Today marks the day that many of you will be accepting your college placements, or apprenticeships ready for the next stage of your education.

This year summer examinations were cancelled again, and you were all awarded your GCSE results based on Teacher Assessed Grades. These grades were based on the evidence that you produced over the past two years, including your in-class assessments, mock assessments, internal assessments, and formal assessments in the sports hall, all supported by your coursework-based tasks. The volume and quality of the evidence you produced is something to be proud of.

Sitting exams is an experience that can be very stressful, however knowing that each of these different assessments would be providing evidence to support your Teacher Assessed Grade, has possibly been even more so. I hope you are now able to take a deep breath and relax as the waiting is over and the results are in. I hope that you and your families will be able to celebrate, as the grades that you have achieved will allow you to pursue the college/sixth form courses or other education or employments routes that you chose. I believe that these grades are truly deserved and reflect the hard work that you all put in.

On behalf of all the staff here at Cornelius Vermuyden School I would like to wish you all the very best for your futures. We are proud of your achievements and look forward to hearing about your future successes.

    National association of
    Able Children in England

    Cornelius Vermuyden are an official member of NACE (National association of Able Children in England).

    Not only does this partnership support our development of our highest achieving pupils, it supports the development of every pupil in the school. We are committed to ensuring that a high level of challenge exists in the classroom in every lesson and to help potential convert to success and happiness for our pupils. We are firm believers that "rising tides lift all ships" and that if all students have a daily diet of challenging experiences at school and beyond, then this will help support their educational and personal development as learners and as people. Yet, as our 2016 GCSE results showed, those who come to us classed as more able achieve incredible results – for example, Callum Cuthbert leaving the school with 11 A* grades is an achievement that is not just well above the national average in terms of progress and achievement, but one that should be celebrated in terms of the school's work with its high achieving pupils.

    However, here at Cornelius Vermuyden, we promote the ethos that all children must be given access to a positive mindset in terms of their learning. The message is clear; all young people are capable of reaching any goal they set their mind to if they are challenged and show a positive attitude to self - improvement . Cornelius Vermuyden places challenge and the importance of a 'growth mindset' at the heart of its teaching and learning vision for our pupils and our association with NACE is supporting this commitment to all pupils at the school.
