Today we celebrate the achievements of all the students from HTC who received their GCSE and vocational qualification results. The students should be very proud of themselves, despite the considerable challenges that were presented to them by the global pandemic students worked hard and with determination, resilience and support from staff and parents have secured a promising future.
Horndean Technology College students have again attained great results today with 53% of students achieving a ‘strong pass’ (grade 9-5) in English Language/Literature and Maths. 71% of students achieved a ‘standard pass’ (grade 9-4) in both subjects. This will help students secure a level 3 course or apprenticeship. Attainment 8 (the average grade across 8 subjects) was 48.84 demonstrating how students achieve and make good progress across a wide range of subjects by studying a broad and balanced curriculum.
These results are a fantastic accomplishment and show that students and staff have worked hard and are continually maintaining high standards, ensuring that progress made in English and Maths supports all learners. HTC meets the needs of all students, ensuring they make better than expected progress and attainment in many other subjects including Science, the Arts, Languages, Humanities, Sport, Computing and Technology and continues to be a high performing, state maintained, non-selective comprehensive.
Delighted Headteacher, Julie Summerfield congratulated the students’ achievements. She said, “This achievement by the students is brilliant, despite all the hurdles that were thrown at them they came through strong, met the challenges head on, learnt from their mistakes and performed when it mattered the most. We are extremely proud of these results as they demonstrate the excellence that both students, parents and staff have achieved together. Students from HTC will have very promising futures as a result of their successes.”
