Results Days 2020

This year A Level results day will be on Thursday, August 13th, with the GCSE results day on the following Thursday, August 20th.

The results days this year will, of course, be quite different for a number of reasons but they are just as important as ever. Please find below details of our arrangements.

  • Due to the current situation, unfortunately you will not be able to come into school to collect your results. We are allowed to release results from 8am and will be emailing results to your @queenscollege email addresses as soon after this time as possible.
  • Once you have received your results, if you have any questions or wish to talk to any members of staff, please email exams@queenscollege.org.uk or call the main school number 01823 272559. We will then direct your email or call to the right person.
  • Sixth Form and academic staff will be on hand to discuss Sixth Form and university courses on results days and on the days that follow. We will try to arrange conversations and meetings over the phone or online through Google Meets but if, after having received your results, you feel that a face-to-face meeting is necessary, please use the contact details above to arrange an appointment.
  • Students in Year 13 will receive further detailed information about the UCAS confirmation, clearing and adjustment processes later this week.

Ofqual has released new guidance on the very limited appeals process and the planned Autumn series of A Level and GCSE exams for those students who wish to take them. The full guidance is available by CLICKING HERE. We will of course keep students/parents informed as we learn more about the options available.

Coming together with your friends to celebrate your results is an important part of the process. While we are not in a position this year to be able to facilitate this on the results days, please be assured that we will plan an appropriate celebration in the future, just as soon as we are able.

Excellent GCSE results

Our Head Teacher, Dr Earps, said she was “absolutely delighted” with the 2019 GCSE grades.

“The results are excellent across our wide range of subjects and we’re so pleased that our students’ hard work has paid off.

“We’re particularly pleased that the effort we have put in to improve our academic offering has seen another increase in top grades with a 100 per cent pass rate in ten subjects.”

Speaking on results day, Dr Earps said Queen’s – which also reported outstanding 2019 A Level results – was looking forward to introducing a raft of changes to its provision for students from September 2019.

“We’re certain these will produce yet another improvement in our exam grades next year,” she added.

Rohan is taking his A Levels at Queen’s after an outstanding set of results.

He achieved nine passes at the top grade nine and also earned an A* in Further Mathematics.

Twins Oliver and Toby are continuing their studies together after moving on to A Levels.

Oliver achieved 11 passes, including five nines, with Toby passing ten subjects, including two top grades.

So is there any rivalry between the pair?

“There used to be,” said Toby. “But now we concentrate on setting our own targets.”

Oliver would like to eventually become a research scientist or doctor while Toby has his sights set on becoming an actor or working in the media.

He has starred in numerous Queen’s production and already played a leading role in the film ‘We Can Be Heroes’ alongside top names such as Alison Steadman.

Jo followed in her brother’s footsteps at Queen’s College with an excellent performance at GCSE.

Matthew, who was Head Boy, achieved A Level A* grades in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics with another A* for his Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Jo, who earned 11 passes, is now taking her A Levels at Queen’s.

Emma Stock starred at Crufts in March and it was no surprise that her faithful friend Athena was alongside her on results day.

At Crufts, the pair came first in Graduate Agility in the 12-17 age group and then won overall - coming first against all competitors in all age groups and all heights of dog. They have already qualified for the 2020 event.

After receiving her GCSE results, Emma has on to study Animal Management and would love to eventually work with animals in some capacity.
