HTC students – GCSE Results 2020!
20 August 2020
Horndean Technology College students have once again attained great results and have been awarded the grades that they deserve. Amidst the numerous changes in the calculation of grades this year and the stress that this has generated we are confident that students and parents should be pleased with the outcomes. There are still a number of grades to be awarded for Vocational subjects and these are due to be published next Tuesday.
At this present time 85% of students have achieved a standard pass in English and 80% in Maths. 76% of students achieved both Maths and English at a ‘standard pass’.
Attainment 8 at this time (the average grade across 8 subjects) was significantly higher than last year’s national demonstrating how students achieve and make good progress across a wide range of subjects by studying a broad and balanced curriculum.
There were many fantastic individual student results including Lucy with 9 grade 9s and Jillian achieving 7 grade 9s whilst Christine and Daniel achieved 6 and Adam 5. An amazing 25 students had 7 or more of the top grades in the 9-7 (A*/A) range or equivalent. Eight students achieved a grade between A to C for Additional Maths and 47 students sat Further Maths with 10 achieving grades between 9 and 7.
These results are a fantastic accomplishment and show that students, parents and staff have worked hard and are continually maintaining high standards, ensuring that progress made in English and Maths supports all learners across the curriulum. 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, “We are extremely proud of these results as they demonstrate the excellence that both students and staff have achieved together at a time of great challenge and uncertainty. Students from HTC will have very promising futures as a result of their successes.”
